We are incredibly grateful for the support we’ve received for our first cause based White Light Frankie – a purple ribbon to support opioid crisis organizations. On behalf of Twiddle, we are thrilled to announce the following charities devoted to the opioid crisis will be receiving $500 each.
Twiddle’s Frendsgiving week is here and we thrilled to offer 25 sets of the incredible John Shook, Coda Davidson and Victor Guarneri collaboration: White Light Farms Peas & Carrots Frendsgiving weekend event pins. LE’s are as follows – White 250 (for sale at The Capitol Theatre this weekend to help provide for those in need through Caritas of Port Chester), Orange 125 (with the balance going to the first 100 Frends who bring $10 in non-perishable food items to the Cap) and Green 175 (with the balance earmarked for the VIP event). The price of the set is $45. Thank you for your support. Love (Frendsgiving) Relentlessly.
We are so excited to be back with our Frends at the The Capitol Theatre supporting Caritas of Port Chester. with a food drive and fundraising on behalf of Twiddle. Get those non-perishable food items ready, we set the bar pretty high last year but we can beat it. And just wait until you see this year’s pin!
Frends, The last two years during December we have given grants to charities important to and nominated by you. We hope you will help us again, but this year, in partnership with Twiddle, we are going to do something a bit different and support a specific cause.
Like so many communities, the opioid crisis directly impacts our Frends and family far too often. While we have been fortunate to meet many Frends who are in recovery and share with us their stories of being Lost in the Cold. We have also been touched by the loss of too many.
Recently Ryan Dempsey challenged us to shine our light and make an impact on the epidemic. We are honored to take him up on it and introduce you to our first cause based White Light Frankie.
We hope the purple heart-ribbon will serve as a beacon within our community, expressing our collective support to those who have suffered, are suffering or help us honor those we miss.
The White Light Foundation will match the sales of this open edition Frankie up to $5,000 so your purchase will be worth twice as much to our partner charities.
Who will we be supporting? Well, we are hoping you will help us by nominating a local non-profit crisis centers (IRS §501(c)(3) organization) dedicated to helping us through this epidemic. We will share the money raised across the nominated charities during our month of giving. Please nominate an organization important to you by replying to this message.
On Wednesday September 12th, Twiddle, through their 501c3 partner, the White Light Foundation, donated $10,000 to the University of Vermont’s Children’s Hospital. White Light Foundation, inspired by the music and message of the Vermont quartet Twiddle, raises money and awareness for organizations important to Twiddle and the community that supports them.

To all of you who came out to support Twiddle this past weekend … thank you!

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Love Relentlessly.
Frends – Last month we celebrated all things Twiddle during Tumble Down and while we did it, we also did our part to improve the lives of the most vulnerable in our community. With the help of our dear Frends at Fiddlehead Brewing Company and Martin Guitar and many others Twiddle and WLF raised $10,000 for UVM Children’s Hospital NICU. But, the truth is, we couldn’t have raised even a penny without you. Thank you for supporting our mission by participating in our fundraisers, buying our products and sharing our message. We look forward to seeing you next at Twiddle at Stony Creek Brewery Event where we will raise lend our support to a very special organization to our community … details to follow. Love Relentlessly
