Wildland is opting to close our office this Black Friday to encourage our staff, friends and family to get out, give thanks and enjoy the wild. We have a lot to be thankful for as we approach our 30th anniversary and what better time to say thanks than Thanksgiving?
This year we're giving thanks to an incredible cause and you can too! A young Wildland traveler, 12-year-old Jamie Eisner, who recently returned from a family safari in Tanzania has taken on the monumental task of raising money to build a well for a school she visited.
“Before I visited Tanzania, I took for granted that I have easy access to water whenever I want, air conditioning, plenty of food, medicine, a great education, and so much more. The children at Mikocheni have none of this, but we can give them something that would change their lives,” explains Jamie. “With the well, the kids will do better in school because they'll be less tired and less dehydrated. If they are doing better in school, then they will be more successful when they grow up, and live a better life.”
We want to help Jamie, so from today through the end of Black Friday (Nov 27), for every adventure photo you post and tag, we'll donate $10 to building the well for the Mikocheni Primary School, up to $500! Simply tag your photos on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with #OptOutside and #Wildland and join the cause.
Whatever you opt for this Black Friday, make it count!
Your friendly adventure company,
