Climb For Captives

The two of us are passionate about the fight against human trafficking, so we are super thrilled to be partnering with a nonprofit right up our alley called Climb For Captives. Climb for Captives is a community of friends who use outdoor adventure to raise awareness and support for the fight against human trafficking. Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world, with nearly 27 million victims. It generates an estimated $31 billion each year, most of which comes from commercial sexual exploitation. We invite you to take a look at the data/infographic at Rescue: Freedom to learn more about the impact of global human trafficking.
Since 2008 Climb For Captives has been climbing mountains to rescue women and children from slavery. For each climb they partner with a non-profit that is working to bring freedom to victims of human trafficking and they give them 100% of the money they raise so that they can rescue as many as possible. Their next team is headed to summit Mt. Baker in mid-July and all donations go to Rescue: Freedom.
So, for every item you purchase through July 1st, we will give $5, but here's the coolest part... a private donor is matching every dollar given. So make your purchase count, grab that item (or two, or three...!) you've been eyeing and know that you are making a difference. It's that easy.
