Goodwill Industries will be supplying me with gently used fleeces, killer deals on technical pants, a wide assortment of polycotton blend shirts and quite possibly Dickies work pants. All perfect for the outdoors. I will also be able to choose from a wide array of pots, cups and utensils perfect for any outdoor pursuits, too.
At the end of the school year in Boulder, I anticipate the opportunity to try out new-to-me packs, over sized tents, some barely used shell jackets and pants, some stylish puffies and perhaps even some two-burner camping stoves.
I feel this sponsorship is a fantastic fit not only for the backpacking I do, but even for camping and day use winter activities.
The opportunity for sponsorship from such a prestigious company did surprise me, but the email I received from their director of marketing noted how “As a full-time working person, it is great you make the outdoors a priority“ and also went on to note “That despite having a full time job in the technology field, you still continue to dirt bag for some reason”.
When I told The Former Wife this wonderful news, her reply was “If you look like a homeless person when we are in national parks together, I may divorce you”.
Overall, I am very excited about this sponsorship opportunity and what it represents. I am proud to be a Goodwill Industries Brand Ambassador. I am looking forward to representing this fine company and its many outdoor products.
