San Francisco, CA (March 30, 2017)Peak Design, makers of essential carry equipment and camera accessories, is proud to further the company’s commitment to environmental causes with the launch of Give A Shot: a website that connects photographers and videographers with environmental non-profits in need of visual content. Currently accepting applications from non-profits associated with Peak Design partners, 1% For The Planet, and The Conservation Alliance, Peak Design hopes Give A Shot will bridge a vital gap in the environmental community while enabling visual artists to give back in a meaningful way.

Give A Shot is entirely free and easy to use. Non-profit visitors can post their needs for photo and video content, while creatives can easily browse or search for project listings in their physical location or area of expertise. Once connected, non-profits and artists can work directly with each other to finalize details and deliverables.

“What I'm most excited about is making it easier for creatives to take direct action in advocating for the environment and supporting grassroots efforts,” commented Annie Nyborg, Peak Design’s Director of Corporate Responsibility and Community. “Equally exciting is nonprofits getting images and videos that properly and powerfully convey the important work they're doing.”

Best known for their innovative photography equipment and everyday bags, Peak Design has established a passionate community of fans which it hopes will join them in lending their talents for the Give A Shot program. To encourage non-profit organizations to submit their projects, Peak Design has partnered with 1% For The Planet and The Conservation Alliance to engage a broader network of vetted environmental non-profits. 

Peak Design joined 1% For The Planet as a business member in 2016. Kate Williams, CEO of 1% For The Planet commented on the program, “Give A Shot is a very thoughtful and powerful resource that will help so many on-the-ground environmental nonprofits create even more meaningful impacts in the world.”

By giving life to Give A Shot, Peak Design is walking the walk. In early 2017, Peak Design publicly announced a new commitment to limit the company’s impact on the environment and to ensure the brand’s overall growth does not come at the expense of people or the planet. In addition to Give A Shot, Peak Design will once again host its successful SUMM1T event in September 2017 to further foster relationships between the creative, environmental, and business communities for the betterment of the planet.

Anyone interested in Give A Shot is encouraged to contact Peak Design for more details or visit http://giveashot.org
