Gift Your Gear and help children and young people get into the outdoors
Children and young people need to get outdoors for their physical, emotional and intellectual well-being. The ability to pay for outdoor clothing and equipment is often cited as a reason for non-participation.
The young people of today who engage with and enjoy the outdoors will become the outdoor enthusiasts and gear buyers of tomorrow.
First impressions count and It’s hard to enjoy your early experiences in the outdoors when you’re cold, wet and uncomfortable. Having the right clothing and equipment helps to ensure that outdoor experiences are safe and enjoyable.
The Outdoor Industries Association is delighted to support the Gift Your Gear initiative, both from a commercial perspective and as the founder of the Britain on Foot campaign.
Britain on Foot has a simple aim: to get more people more active outdoors, more often. And it could be that the cost of suitable equipment and clothing may discourage many, particularly young people, from giving the outdoors a try.
Access to a such valuable resource as Gift Your Gear may make the difference between becoming active outdoors or not.
Ultimately, the more people who begin to enjoy the outdoors, the more the outdoor industry will benefit.
Gift Your Gear is a wonderful initiative that deserves support.
