May 24th, 2021 Kite Newsletter - New and Improved

It was time for a facelift to the weekly email newsletter. We may still mess around with it in the coming week till we get the one that looks just right, so if you like what you see, let us know!


This weekly snippet of sharing things in the kite world has been one of the things that has kept the Fortuna Found HQ humming along and feeling motivated to keep flying kites. Hopefully it has kept you informed, and perhaps inspired you to go out and do a little bit more with your kites. As always, we are open to suggestions on how to make this a better resource for you. Let us know at info@fortunafound.com .
