Cortez, CO – February 8, 2013 – Osprey Packs, Inc., a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative packs to comfortably and efficiently carry gear, is pleased to announce a record donation to four non-profits as a result of the brand’s 2012 Prodeal Donation Program.
This past year, Osprey’s Prodeal Donation Program raised over $11,000 to benefit Alaska Wilderness League, International Mountain Biking Association, SOS Outreach and Paradox Sports.
The program, now in its tenth year, requires a two dollar donation per prodeal transaction to select organizations. At the time of purchase, prodeal customers are able to select the organization of their choice for their personal donation.
“Osprey is proud to offer support to these fantastic nonprofit organizations,” said Sam Mix, Osprey outdoor marketing manager. “In turn, we hope that this effort educates and inspires our customers to help preserve our wild places for years to come by supporting these organizations through volunteerism and financial contributions.”
For 2013, the Osprey Prodeal Program has designated the following non-profits as beneficiaries: Conservation Colorado, American Whitewater,Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation and Mountain2Mountain.
Independent since 1974 and anchored by the design genius of company founder and owner, Mike Pfotenhauer, Osprey Packs has long set the standard for creating innovative, high quality gear carrying equipment. The collection includes packs and bags designed to help adventurers enjoy their outdoor, biking and travel pursuits.
The location of company headquarters in Cortez, Colorado, near the rugged San Juan Mountains and on the edge of desert canyon country, provides a constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for Osprey products. Osprey also maintains a product development office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, near the factories where they manufacture their products, ensuring face-to-face relationships and transparency with their suppliers. In 2010, Osprey opened a design office in Mill Valley, California, a hub of design talent and the birthplace of mountain biking. All three of these offices play a crucial role in creating Osprey gear that lasts a lifetime.
To celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2009, Osprey launched the All Mighty Guarantee, an enhancement of a lifetime warranty that was already one of the most robust in the industry. Free of charge, the company will repair any damage or defect in its product – whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday. Every Osprey product reflects the company’s commitment to protect the wild places its customers love to explore. For more information, visit www.ospreypacks.com.
