We're all in this together 💛 Community is at the heart of Machines and right now, our global community needs our help more than ever.
To help aid those most in need, Machines is donating 10% of all April sales to support the Coronavirus Relief Fund.
Your donation to this fund will help stop the virus's spread and give communities on the front lines of the crisis the resources they need to act quickly and protect the most vulnerable.
We like this fund because it splits up donations to those who need it most:
No Kid Hungry
Meals on Wheels
National Domestic Workers Alliance
Restaurant Workers Community Foundation
One Fair Wage Emergency Fund
Thank you for helping us to support with your purchases! #NewKitDay does good!
As most of the US continues to shelter in place, our warehouse is once again open for business and we'll be back to shipping orders starting today!
We're working hard to honor our usual shipping guarantee that promises offers shipped within 1 business day, but please be aware, as we catch up from the closure, new orders will be delayed. We are operating with extremely reduced staff, but they're doing their best!
Please note that preorders are still delayed as we await the ability to receive new shipments from our factory.
Thank you for your patience and don't hesitate to email us with specific q's!
TO OUR MACHINES COMMUNITY,
Today, the decision was made to close our warehouse for one week in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our team safe and healthy. This temporary closure is currently scheduled for one week, but things are changing fast and we will reassess the safety of our employees before reopening.
Preorder dates will also be effected by this delay as our receiving team is also working from home. We will do our best to get these shipped as soon as we can as I know many of you have already been patiently waiting! New orders can still be placed and we will ship once warehouse doors reopen.
We thank you so much for your patience and support during this time. And we'll be in touch with more updates as we learn more.
In the meantime, I wanted to take a moment to let everyone know what we are doing to keep positivity high and the good vibes going. Human connection and physical activity are some of the best ways to combat stress and maintain a healthy state of mind, and Machines is here for you during this challenging time. There are a couple of ways you can tap into our community for some much needed connection during this period of social distancing.
One way you can do this is through our recent partnership with Zwift. We have seen incredible turnouts to the virtual rides hosted these past couple weeks, with rides attracting as many as 200+ riders. This a safe way for us all to connect while keeping our minds and bodies strong and healthy. And to make this accessible to as many riders as possible, we are offering a 30 day membership, on us, to all first time riders during the month of March. No purchase is needed. Just sign up here, join a ride, and channel your energy into the incredible womxn's community that is coming together from around the world!
For those in need of fresh air and sunshine, let our Basemiles playlist fuel your ride and we welcome you to share your adventure by tagging @machinesforfreedom on Instagram. We love to see how our community is adapting, and by sharing your adventures we can inspire others to stay happy and active during stressful times.
I am forever grateful to the way this community bands together to lift one another up. Stay safe and healthy, from all of us at Machines!
