To celebrate the start of winter we’re teaming up with Gearmunk to bring you 12 things that you can do this holiday season to support the women led and powered outdoor ecosystem. For Day 1, we’re looking at how to give back by supporting some of our favorite non-profits that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the outdoors.
Today is Giving Tuesday, the day we open up our wallets and financially support our values. There are so many incredible non-profits making the world a better place, and we wanted to share our short list with you. We hope that today you give to an organization whose mission is dear to your heart. They need you now.
