Parks4Kids: Give Back Badge


One Give Back Badge = One Kid Outside

If every Outdoor Retailer attendee purchased a Give Back Badge, we could get 35,000 kids outside. That’s the idea behind the Give Back Badge program by Outdoor Retailer that benefits the Outdoor Foundation.

For a $15 donation, transform your badge into a Give Back Badge by getting a Parks4Kids patch, which includes limited-edition artwork by Jeremy Collins.

How it works:

  • Commit to participating in the “Give Back Badge” program.
  • Outdoor Retailer will designate your company’s badges as “Give Back Badges.”
  • At badge pickup, your employees will be given the special badge with the Parks4Kids patch.
  • The Outdoor Foundation will send you an invoice and updates on funded projects.
  • Join other industry leaders to get thousands of kids outdoors!

 BEST: Buy your Give Back Badge pre-show.

To participate in this important outdoor industry program, you can sign up your company when registering for Outdoor Retailer badges for Winter Market or contact Chris Fanning at

GOOD: Get your Give Back Badge at the show.
