Gear For Gifts

Postby halhiker » Wed May 28, 2014 1:50 pm

Whenever I've got some extra gear I never know the best way to get rid of it. Sometimes I put it on eBay but you don't always get good value that way—and sometimes you get WAY more than you expect but it's a crapshoot. I've given some to friends, which is always good but you've got to know what certain people need and have the right size.

Then, I came up with a new idea. How about I give someone the gear in exchange for a donation to a local charity? Gear For Gifts

How it would work is someone would put up a piece of gear with a suggested donation and the person who wants it makes a donation in exchange for the item they want.

I was thinking good possible donation destinations would be:
The Tahquitz Peak Fire Lookout (which I man occasionally) http://mountainsfoundation.org/uploads/ ... iginal.pdf
RMRU http://www.rmru.org/donate.htm
The Mount San Jacinto Natural History Association http://msjnha.org
Palm Springs Mounted Police https://www.facebook.com/pages/Palm-Spr ... 7404612601

There may be others as well.

I'm gonna round up some extra stuff and see if anyone could use it. I've got a few packs and some North Face Jackets and who knows what else.

What do you think?
