I wanted to post a late afternoon note to let everyone know that I’ve selected the winners for this week’s gear giveaway contest that was brought to us courtesy of yourLUME.com. I’ve sent e-mails to the two winners informing them of their prizes, and I’ll be posting their names here once I hear back from them.
I want to thank yourLUME for providing the great gear to give out in honor of Earth Day, which is going on today of course, and I want to thank everyone who entered the contest. I had a blast reading the e-mails, and not only did you come up with some fantastic places to enjoy the outdoors, many of you had very kind things to say about my blog as well. I want everyone to know that I appreciate those comments and you dropping by this page regularly to see what’s going on in the adventure world.
Also, don’t forget that yourLUME is right in the middle of its 30 Days of Giving campaign, during which time 100% of their proceeds from gear sold, up to a total of $10,000, is going to the Mercy Corps to help with the relief effort in Japan. It has been more than five weeks since the catastrophe there and it will be many months before life truly returns to normal. yourLUME is doing their part to help the cause.
Check back in next week for the start of another cool give away and enjoy the weekend!
