SPRINGFIELD, IL – Gear Forward was recently designated by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a non-profit organization under IRS Section 501 (c) (3). Gear Forward is an organization focused on collecting gently used and new outdoor gear for donation to youth in need who participate in outdoor themed non-profit organizations. Over the course of the last year and a half, Gear Forward has helped hundreds of youth in need from Portland, Oregon to Pennsylvania and many points in between.
This new designation formalizes Gear Forward and brings about unlimited opportunities for the organization to sustain itself to ensure its mission of outfitting the next generation of adventurers becomes a reality. “This is a game changer for Gear Forward, we are so excited to broaden our reach and work with the outdoor community at large to help kids in need around the United States” Mr. Scott Gauvin, Executive Director, Gear Forward.
Gear Forward is the only organization that works from coast to coast to satisfy outdoor gear needs for youth who have a desire to participate in outdoor activities that may not have the proper resources to do so.
With the continued cooperation of our existing sponsors and potential for new sponsors with this designation, Gear Forward will seek to grow a larger network of giving supported by the outdoor community and its Gear Forward Ambassadors around the United States.
Gear Forward is pleased to announce another partnership with a gear company who has a passion for building great gear and for giving back as well. Multimok is a company who manufactures a very interesting hammock, like nothing you have ever seen before. Based in Utah, Multimok creates hammocks that are both rugged yet comfortable.
Curious about the Multimok? Here is some information from their site to peak your interest.
If you understand the advantages of a multi-tool you'll quickly see why the patent pending multimok is for you. Sure, it can be used like a regular hammock, but the ways it can be configured are too many to count. Use it as a chair, a taut surface, a bed, a double hammock, a canopy, a monkey bridge, a pack, a gear sack, a tree stand, etc. When you realize what a multimok can do, you'll have one in your grab-and-go gear for camping, relaxing or just for wandering the great outdoors.
The multimok is not contending in the lightweight division of hammocks. We're dominating the heavyweights. The multimok for adults will easily hold loads of 2500lbs. This allows the Multimok to be tasked with the most challenging requirements—in any variety of settings—for solo or double occupancy.
Everyone needs a place to hang. With a multimok, almost anywhere can be that place. The Multimok is an upgrade to a parachute hammock and solves many of the traditional challenges of hammocking. Once you have a multimok you'll discover that you can easily remove other gear from your camping and hiking arsenal, like; a camp chair, a tent, a ladder, a bed, a camping pad, an underquilt, a canopy and more.
