Since day one, ePromos has committed to giving back. From our ePromos for Good campaign to our partnerships with campaigns like Julia’s Cookies and Community Mainstreaming, we’re committed to improving our community at large, and to supporting our customers in the great work they do.
That commitment includes partnering with innovative brands that give back in a big way like Basecamp. Basecamp donates a portion of its proceeds to Warrior Spirit Retreat. This unique nonprofit was started by Basecamp ambassador Dan Nevins, and works to support veterans and their families – people who often have to deal with the invisible wounds of war.
Funds donated to Warrior Spirit Retreat or generated through sales help directly support this mission, with free holistic healing retreats to veterans and their loved ones.
“After losing my legs in combat operations in Iraq, and learning to live with a Traumatic Brain Injury, I found myself struggling to adapt to my new circumstances and integrate back into civilian life,” Dan explains. “I healed well from the physical wounds of war, yet like many returning service members, I failed to acknowledge the impact of the invisible wounds of war, which ultimately destroyed my marriage and negatively impacted basically every relationship I had.”
After nearly a decade of suffering in silence, Dan discovered meditation and yoga, becoming a yoga teacher and working with veterans like himself.
“I started offering free retreats for the veteran community, using a curriculum focused on yoga, mindfulness and meditation and tied to the mindfulness based activities of golf, horsemanship and nature,” he says. “Through the retreats, we teach warriors tools and practices to cope with their unseen wounds and show them that true healing is available from within.”
When you buy Basecamp promotional products, you’re helping veterans heal and grow
Basecamp’s current collection of promotional products includes a host of outdoor-related essentials designed to help users “Live Bold” – think power banks, water bottles, caps, backpacks, multi-tools, hammocks and more. All products are inspired by Nevin’s own passion for action and adventure – a passion he’s pursued to the fullest, despite losing both legs below the knee in Iraq. To date, Nevin has climbed Uhuru Peak in Tanzania, scaled Machu Picchu and, even, taught yoga at the White House. Most importantly, he’s focused on giving back.
“Our vision is to buy and build a dedicated retreat property in St Augustine, Florida where our warriors can feel welcomed, safe, and completely alive,” Dan says. “Thanks to our partnership with Basecamp we are getting closer to making that goal a reality.”
In 2018 alone, Basecamp profits drove more than $100,000 to Warrior Spirit Retreat – and 2019 is already shaping up to be a record-breaking year.
