Support


The Science of Paddling (TSOP) kicked off in 2009 with 4 articles, and after a long hiatus went online in 2017.  There are now 27 articles plus one podcast in the series.

Over that time the total amount you’ve be asked to pay to access these articles is $0.00.  I hope you’ve gotten some value out of reading them, or perhaps experienced the joy of learning something new (or both!).

So I have a favor to ask.  In lieu of any payment to support TSOP, if you can swing it I’m asking you to support one of our favorite local charities: The Merrimack Valley Food Bank.

The coronavirus sent many residents in the Merrimack Valley into an economic tailspin that’s being felt at the dinner table.  Job loss and other economic factors associated with the outbreak could push the rate of food insecurity in the Valley to 12.9 percent by year’s end.

For some, it’s a matter of running short on grocery money before the week is out.  For others, food insecurity means real hunger.

So if you can swing it I’d be grateful if you’d make a donation to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank during this time.  Here’s the link:

And if you can’t swing a donation, no problem; I’ll ask instead that you just be kind to someone.

Thanks for your kindness and generosity, and for being a TSOP reader,

— Shawn
