A Year of Rest

We’re thrilled to announce A Year of Rest, a continuation of 100 Nights of Rest,  in partnership with Rachel Cargle, The Nellie Mae Education Foundation, and MiiR. We were so overwhelmed by the response, receiving thousands of heartfelt nominations from across the country, that we knew we had to do more. In total we’ll be providing 365 nights of rest for Black people working for change, and those fighting for the Black community.

We support the critical work taking place, and want to offer access to nature as a resource. Rest is critical to continuing the revolution. The better we take care of ourselves, the stronger we’ll be as we continue this fight. 

Nominations are closed. We considered all past nominations as well as new nominations. They may be a community organizer, a parent, a healthcare worker, a teacher, an artist, or a friend—every contribution, no matter how big or small, moves us forward. If we’re going to make meaningful changes, it will take all of us.

GETAWAY x RACHEL CARGLE

What is Getaway?

Getaway offers escapes to tiny cabins nestled in nature. The cabins provide undistracted time that allow our guests to slow down from their busy routines, disconnect from work and technology, reconnect to themselves and each other, and truly rest. Our Outposts are located up to 2 hours outside of major cities and are reserved by night.

FAQ

When and where can the free night be used?

The recipient can use their night at Getaway whenever they are ready—it never expires. The free night is valid at any of our Outposts.

How does the nominee find out if they receive a free night? 

We’ll contact the recipient and the nominator directly and if the recipient has granted permission for us to share their story, we’ll feature them on our Journal and Instagram.

Is it safe to go on a Getaway during COVID-19? 

Socially distant by design, Getaway is a private, solitary experience. Additionally, we’ve intensified routine cleaning procedures to ensure cabins are more deeply disinfected. There are no communal spaces or in-person interaction at our Outposts—this means easy self check-in and check-out processes without a front desk, private outdoor and dining areas, and at least 50’-150’ between cabins. Learn more here.

What about transportation? 

Getaway will be providing all recipients with a $100 credit to cover transportation and food so they can enjoy a stress free escape.

What is the last day we can nominate someone?

Nominations are closed.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

"I often say that being our best selves is our highest service. As so many Black people continue earnestly on the front lines demanding justice, there is a critical need for rest and restoration to continue the fight. Getaway is a space to find just that—the type of ease and repose that is so deeply deserved."
