wharton-houseTourism Cares, the philanthropic arm of the tourism industry, has developed a new initiative, “Save our Sites”,  which enables the public to vote for a site they would like to see supported.  Edith Wharton’s estate The Mount was chosen for the shortlist and would very much like to encourage all of their supporters to vote for them; the winning site will receive a grant. The Mount has applied for funds to help with some of the most immediate structural repairs which are a continuing and critical part of the restoration of the property.  All you have to do is visit their website

and cast your vote by clicking on the list on the right of the page. Every vote counts, so please take the time to help them out by voting and asking your like-minded friends to do the same!
