Cool Tread Lightly!'s 5th Annual Ebay Charity Auction (Nov 1!!!)

Good evening everyone! We are happy to announce that for the 5th year, we'll be running our Ebay charity auction! This is a HUGE fundraiser for us, so as you're planning for your winter holiday shopping and such, keep this opportunity in mind. More than 50 companies have donated more than 100 products to Tread Lightly! for our Fifth Annual Charity Auction on eBay in an effort to raise money for solutions to urgent outdoor recreation issues such as restricted recreation access due to irresponsible behavior. The auction will be held November 1-11, 2012. Big ticket items this year include a Gator XUV 625i utility vehicle and a Toy Gator donated by John Deere.

100% of the money raised will go to help keep access to trails and recreation sites open to the public. The auction also includes plenty of 44 accessories, power sports equipment and outdoor gear. Bids will start at 40 to 60 percent below retail prices.

More information and products coming soon!

November 1st is coming quickly... Only 2 weeks and a day away!

This annual eBay auction is one of our largest single fundraisers, helping us at Tread Lightly! continue to provide educational and training resources in an effort to protect our natural resources while ensuring continued access to the areas we all enjoy, and strive to make sure future generations can enjoy as well. Another huge thank you to our partners who have donated thousands of dollars worth of products, available to you all for as low as 40-60% of retail.

A couple more highlighted products, for your morning "window shopping"...!

Do bears poo in the woods? Yes. As do we... Here's a portable lavatory to help bring some privacy and ease to the "pack it ALL out" practice.

Restop - www.restop.com


RS2000 Personal Lavatory System

For the family. An easy way to cook out over the campfire...

AdjustaGrill - www.adjustagrill.com


Adjustable campfire grill

And for those more adventurous riders...

Looking for a little extra tire or some ground clearance on your Nissan or Toyota 4x4?

Snow is flying throughout much of the country, and whether you're getting the sled ready for some riding... or just to access your favorite back country turns... A quality jacket will help keep you warm.

And here we go!

More than 50 companies have donated more than 100 products to the nonprofit organization Tread Lightly! for its Fifth Annual Charity Auction on eBay in an effort to raise money for solutions to urgent outdoor recreation issues such as restricted recreation access due to irresponsible behavior. The auction is live from today through November 11th. Visit the auction at the link below. Don't see what you were looking for? Keep an eye out, products will be uploaded throughout the day!

Why support Tread Lightly! through the eBay auction? Well, here's an answer for you.

“We’ve developed some remarkable new programs to help grow the number of good stewards and educated recreationists to help protect recreation access,” said Tread Lightly!’s executive director Lori McCullough. “We’ve begun implementation, but we need help from the outdoor recreation community. Money raised from this auction is paramount in helping us save access and curtail closures.”

Happy bidding!

Just a reminder that items are starting to close!

We have products from Otterbox, Rugged Ridge, and HMK to name a few... ALL CLOSING WITHIN 12 HOURS!

This is the perfect chance to shop for that outdoors family member or friend for the holiday season, not to mention helping us continue our outreach and stewardship programs aimed at maintaining responsible access towards the areas we all enjoy.
