I have recently begun guiding ladies group trips to visit some of the caves in the Southeastern Cave Conservancy. I do this of my own time and never charge anything, however I have noticed that some ladies arrive ill equipped or with no equipment. Generally, it’s because they are single mothers and can’t afford it, or borrow from their kids. I am wondering if REI would be so kind as to donate a little gear to help these mothers out. Even used gear would help. I think this would be a great opportunity to get more moms outdoors. We would be happy to send photos and give REI tons of credit. Please let me know what you think.
