Hydro Flask Customers Select NPR & Adopt-A-Classroom to Receive Donations
(Bend, OR) December 13, 2012 – Hydro Flask is celebrating the “Season of Giving” by making donations to charities selected by its customers through its charitable arm, FivePercentBack.org. This Holiday Season Hydro Flask customers have selected National Public Radio (NPR) and Adopt-A-Classroom as the two biggest beneficiaries to receive donations in time for the holidays.
FivePercentBack.org was started in conjunction with Hydro Flask in 2009 to help make a difference in the local Bend community and beyond. By including multiple charities in the program, customers can have a say in who they would like to support with the purchase of their Hydro Flask. Five percent of the net profits from their flask’s sale then goes to those charities selected. After each quarter, votes are tallied and the charities accumulating enough votes are rewarded with donations on Hydro Flask’s behalf through FivePercentBack.org. More than 40 charities and non-profits have been featured through the FivePercentBack.org website since it began.
“AdoptAClassroom.org is excited to be part of the Hydro Flask FivePercentBack.org program. Our work giving teachers the resources they need to educate our children fits well with the FivePercentBack.org’s mission of uniting people and bringing about positive change,” said President & Founder of Adopt-A-Classroom, James Rosenberg. “We know that success happens one classroom and one teacher at time – and FivePercentBack.org helps make this happen one purchase at a time.”
Here’s how people can get involved any time and give back year round:
- Purchase any Hydro Flask anywhere (in stores, online, anywhere!)
- Visit http://www.fivepercentback.
- Click on the “Donate” tab at the top of the page.
- Enter your Flask’s serial number (located on the inside of the wrap that comes on the bottle) and choose the charity you’d like to help out.
