We are launching a collective effort within the sporting goods community to help change living conditions in 3rd and 4th world countries. Many of the goods in our industry come from countries such as Haiti, Vietnam, the Dominican or India. As a result, we are all profiting from regions that are mired in poverty. The industry is bringing new jobs and providing employees with safe working conditions, but little attention is being paid to the surrounding infrastructure. In partnership with the Chanje Movement, we are building the schools, orphanages and medical clinics that drive these communities, helping them "rise up". We're on the ground doing it now, so we hope you'll join us!
