Happiness is Giving: Gear Forward
So today I want to draw your attention to an organization near and dear to my heart, Gear Forward. I met Scott Gauvin, its founder, a couple of years ago and I wrote for his other site, Hiking Forward, while I hiked on the Appalachian Trail. Scott’s a great guy, committed to the outdoors and someone who wants to help people. One way he’s doing that is by creating his new site.
The concept of Gear Forward is quite simple, those of us who spend a lot of time outdoors often have a lot of gear, and a lot of extra gear. As a community, we also tend to be folks who are advocates for helping people get outdoors and appreciate nature. So what the organization does is simply accept the donations of new and/or gently used gear to donate to kids to help them have the right gear to access the outdoors.
They want to achieve something spectacular in their first year, as a collective outdoor community they want us to help to fill their map with a donation from or to all 50 States by the end of 2016.
How can you help?
If you have any questions about how to get involved please contact us.
So far they have impacted or received donation from 11 states, let’s help them check off all 50 and help some kids have a happy day my friends. ~ Rev Kane
