Was shopping for absolutely critical necessities in my local REI when i observed a posting that this local store had contributed to several local conservation groups, including one that focused on the Channel Islands, one of my favorite spots in the whole wide world. Promptly I tucked a few more necessities in my basket.
While REI does stay solvent, I am glad to see them supporting other activities and interests, looking beyond the bottom line. Live Long and Prosper!
Thank you for the shout out! Your passion and advocacy for the Channel Islands has not only put it on my radar but also moved it way up the list. I hope to visit one day and I'll be sure to tap your expertise first!
I know my local REI makes contributions to our area's mountain biking advocacy group for responsible/sustainable trail stewardship, which I can only imagine is just one of many causes they help support.
Thank you for the stoke! We'll keep working hard to raise money for non-profits that help keep our environment clean. It's comments like this that keep us hustling to provide awesome service for you and other members.
