These four non-profits below are near and dear to our hearts at Outdoor Prolink. From helping communities in Nepal who were devastated by the earthquake (dZi Foundation) to keeping our trails cleaner at home (Leave No Trace), there’s something here everyone can get behind. Now we’ve made it possible for our pros to donate a dollar or two (or $10 if you’re feeling generous!) at check out. Every dollar counts, and it’s a small price to pay for the warm fuzzies you’ll get in supporting your outdoor community. Plus, with all the money you’re saving on Prolink with your pro deals, why not kick a dollar or two of your beer fund over to these worthy organizations? We promise that there is at least one that will capture your imagination and pull at your heartstrings. Check ’em out:

Turning tragedy into positive change and inspiration: The catalyst for creating the Jonny Copp Foundation was the tragic loss of three extraordinary individuals, Jonny Copp, Micah Dash, and Wade Johnson. They lost their lives in an avalanche on an expedition in Tibet in 2009.

The spontaneous outpouring from the around the globe created a mandate for sharing and continuing their work. The Foundation strives to keep their memory and dreams alive. They will remind us that our lives are precious and brief and that each of us has the power to realize our dreams and make a positive contribution to the world.
