yourLUME Supports Relief Effort In Japan
Yesterday I announced a new contest that I'm running in conjunction with the fine folks over at yourLUME, who were kind enough to provide two great items to giveaway. It turns out, their generosity doesn't end there however, as they are also taking steps to help in the relief effort in Japan as well.
The website is a great resource for outdoor enthusiasts. Not only do they have plenty of good gear on sale at good prices, but it is also an online community where we can swap stories, share ideas, and post photos from our own adventures. The crew at yourLUME has also announced their 30 Days of Giving campaign, which is running from April 6 - May 5, during which time 100% of their proceeds, up to $10,000, will be donated to help the struggling and suffering people of Japan.
And of course, we'll be running the contest that I launched yesterday all of this week, culminating with giving away a GoLite Litespeed Backpack and a Sierra Designs Verde 20 sleeping bag on Friday, which also happens to be Earth Day. To enter the contest, all you have to do is send me an e-mail at with the subject of "yourLUME." Then, in the body of the message simply leave me a note about your favorite outdoor place where you would put this gear to good use. On Friday, I'll randomly select two winners, and share their favorite destinations.
As you can probably imagine, with two great prizes to give away, I received a number of entries yesterday. I have to say, that I have really enjoyed reading through them all, and just as I suspected, you are a really outgoing, adventurous lot! The selection of outdoor destinations has really run the gamut, and I've even found a few new places that need to go on my "must visit" list! Keep 'em coming!
And stay tuned for another giveaway coming very soon!
