As we start tallying the total dollars and cents from You Buy One, We Give One, we can’t help but take a quick moment to applaud Goal Zero Nation. You accepted our challenge and have blown our minds with your willingness to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. And according to you, our first truckload of gear totaling $300,000 wasn’t enough – so we’re sending more.
With the help of SBA Global Logistic Services, who is covering shipping costs, we packed up another truckload of rechargers and lights to those still without power in New York and New Jersey. Meeting that truck to distribute the gear is another Hurricane Sandy Relief Squad, made up of 4 Goal Zero employees. We’ll be sharing their stories with you as they come in.
There is still time left in our You Buy One, We Give One for Hurricane Sandy Relief program. Now is the perfect time to snag a portable recharger for your smartphone or camera, and you’ll be doing good in the process. Buy one for yourself or buy one for a friend; either way you’ll also be giving one to someone in need. And we’d love another reason to send more gear.
