Wear Your Flair: Help Get More Kids Outside With A Give Back Badge

No doubt, your favorite park, trail, river or lake will miss you as much as you’ll miss it while you’re roaming the aisles of the OR show. Make a grand gesture: Offset your indoor time by purchasing a Give Back Badge to get kids outside.

No one ever called it “the great indoors,” and while we all have a blast reconnecting and doing business with our comrades at OR, we also lament the hours inside under unnatural light and artificial air.

For a donation of $15, you’ll get a Give Back Badge, which helps fund regional projects across the country that aim to get fourth graders meaningful outdoor experiences.

Check out how donations to the Outdoor Foundation are engaging more kids and young adults in outdoor recreation.

What’s more, you’ll get a collectible piece of flair to display proudly during the show and beyond.

Where can you get a Give Back Badge?

  • Outdoor Retailer online registration
  • If you purchase online, you can pick up your badge at the Outdoor Retailer information desk
  • Outdoor Industry Association booth (#BRL200)

Encourage your company to either match your individual donation or, better yet, to offset the entire company’s “indoor time.” SmartWool did. Outdoor Foundation will send you an invoice and updates on funded projects as they happen.

We can’t wait to see you wear that flair at Outdoor Retailer. Express yourself.
