Sherpa Adventure Gear Partners with Nonprofit Big City Mountaineers to Donate New Yatra Pack Sales at Outdoor Retailer
July 9, 2018
Sherpa Adventure Gear launches its Yatra Pack Collection, and has partnered with Big City Mountaineers at Outdoor Retailer to sell a limited quantity of packs, with all funds from the sales benefiting the local Denver nonprofit.
MODESTO, CA — July 9, 2018 — Sherpa Adventure Gear is thrilled to be selling the Yatra Everyday Pack from its new collection at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market this July. All of the funds received from the sale of the packs will be donated to Big City Mountaineers (BCM), a nonprofit mentoring under-resourced youth outdoors through transformative wilderness mentoring experiences.
Launching to the public in August, a limited supply of Sherpa’s new Yatra Everyday Pack will be available for $20 each [MSRP $59], at the Sherpa Adventure Gear booth, 36097-UL, at 4pm MT on Wednesday, July 25th. The entirety of the funds received from each pack sale will go directly to BCM. Additionally, five (5) packs sold at the show will randomly include a code good for $300 worth of Sherpa gear on sherpaadventuregear.com.
“Giving back to Big City Mountaineers and their goal to leave a lasting impact on the lives of under-resourced youth directly aligns with our values and work educating and empowering Nepali students with our Sherpa Adventure Gear Fund. To put it simply, it’s what we’re about,” says Tsedo Sherpa-Ednalino Sherpa’s COO. “And we’re really excited about the launch of our Yatra Collection this fall. These packs are designed for the journey we take everyday, whether that’s to school, to work, exploring the outdoors or traveling to another country.”
“I’ve known Sherpa Adventure Gear since Tashi first started making his high-quality gear in Kathmandu,” says Doug Sandok, Big City Mountaineers Corporate Relations Director. “It’s really exciting to be able to do something with Sherpa that is going to make a difference in kids’ lives here in the US. I know Sherpa has always had a strong component of giving back to the communities that have supported it, and making a difference in peoples’ lives, beyond making quality gear and apparel. We are so excited to combine forces at this summer’s Outdoor Retailer show to make a meaningful difference in young peoples’ lives.”
