Open new mail messages from Alfred

MacStoriesDeals Superstorm Sandy Donations
From today until the 18th, about 30% of all my income through the Hazel tutorial will be given to the American Red Cross to help out those impacted by Sandy.
The deal is easy:
- The tutorial is €10 normally.
- Use MacStories coupon code to get 20% off the tutorial. In this case €1.50 go to charity.
- But, if you buy the tutorial normally without coupon, €3 go to charity.
In either case it’s €3 at your disposition, and you can decide how that extra money is spent.
If you want to donate even more. Follow MacStories advice:
"If you’d like to donate to American Red Cross without having to buy Hazel, we recommend Apple’s own donation page available on iTunes.”
