November 2014
Greetings! 
We hope this finds you well and enjoying all the bounty November has to offer. We have been busy, busy, busy putting together the 2015 SunriseGuide and the new mobile coupon app. With so much to report, this month's newsletter is chock full of all the "what's and when's" of the new SunriseGuide!
The 2015 SunriseGuide Releases November 24th

We're excited to announce that the 9th edition of the SunriseGuide releases November 24th - just in time for your holiday shopping! We're pretty smitten with the new cover, designed by local illustrator Betsy Thompson. As always, the SunriseGuide can be purchased at 150+ retailers around Maine, on the SunriseGuide website, and through local school fundraisers. The 2015 edition features great new offers from Portland Food Co-op, Mae's Café, Kosmein Skin Care, Freeport Yoga, Camden Snow Bowl, Smudge Art Studio and Buoy Local (to name a few), plus offers from the old friends that you've come to know and love, like Frontier, Maine Hardware, Springboard Pilates, Portland Museum of Art, Lots for Tots, Royal River Books, and more! 

 

We love bringing you the best of what's healthy, local and green in Maine, while helping you save money at some of Maine's best businesses!
 
The SunriseGuide Mobile App Launches in December

We've heard your requests and we are excited to announce that we are launching a SunriseGuide mobile coupon app, making it even easier for you to find and directly engage with Maine businesses that match your values. And... redeem SunriseGuide coupons directly from your phone! Imagine never again having to miss out on great offers because you left your SunriseGuide at home! The mobile app will launch next month and will be sold individually or bundled with the print edition, so you can choose which format best fits your needs - print or mobile. Breathe a sigh of relief - you'll never again find yourself at a local business without your SunriseGuide coupons! (Want to learn more? Check out our video about the SunriseGuide Mobile App!)

 

Raise Money for your School with the SunriseGuide

Did you know the SunriseGuide can help you raise money for the Class of '15, sports teams, arts groups, boosters, environmental clubs, Project Graduation, special trips & projects, and more?! With SunriseGuide fundraising, it's very simple - students sell the SunriseGuide to parents, relatives, neighbors, etc., and the school group keeps up to $10 from each book, app or book/app bundle that's sold! Choose a product you can feel good about selling, while earning big bucks for your school. Want to learn more about these fundraising opportunities?
