Jetboil raises money for nonprofit to help get disadvantaged outside.
Manchester, NH - Jetboil®, Inc., the world’s leading brand of outdoor cooking systems and a division of Johnson Outdoors (Nasdaq: JOUT) helped raise money for Splore, a nonprofit that provides life-changing outdoor experiences for people with disabilities, with a crowdfunding giveaway contest.
For every $5 donated to Splore from September 23 to October 3, 2014, participants were entered to win a pre-release Sapphire Blue MiniMo stove. That meant if someone donated $25, that person was entered to win five times. Jetboil and Splore fans rallied on social media to raise money for the nonprofit.
“We’re excited to make products that help people get outside,” Jetboil Brand Manager Ken Avery said. “Splore also helps get people outside, so we we’re happy to partner with this nonprofit.”
Splore serves children and adults with disabilities and special health care needs, as well as underserved populations such as refugee youth and low-income families. Splore removed barriers to outdoor adventures including cost, equipment, transportation, cultural attitudes, and self-limiting beliefs. Our programs serve friends, family members, and agency care givers, allowing families to engage in outdoor adventures together.
“Splore exists because we believe that everyone, regardless of ability or income, deserves the opportunity to experience the outdoors,” Splore Marketing Manager Lindsay Malone said. “The money raised in this giveaway contest will directly go to helping the disadvantaged get outside.”
The winner was selected from a spreadsheet using random.org. Congratulations to Erika Voorhees of Salt Lake City! Stay tuned for our next contest with Splore and your chance to win sweet Jetboil gear!
