North Face & Global Giving extend help for Kashmir quake victims

Dec '05
Backpacking equipment retailer The North Face announced that the company in collaboration with Global Giving collected 5 tons of Gear for the Kashmir Earthquake Victims.

In collaboration with GlobalGiving, The North Face collected over 5 tons of winter appropriate products for the Kashmir Earthquake victims.

The product was donated by concerned people like you at the 10 retail store locations around the country and is now being sent to Delhi, India where The North Face athletes are picking it up and shepherding it into the hardest to reach regions of Kashmir.

Leading the team of athletes is Wille Benegas, 5 time Everest Summitter, who has frequented this region often since 1993.

Arriving in Delhi on Saturday (11/27), Willie is leading Patrick Kenny, a colleague of his, along with The North Face athlete team members, Renan Ozturk and Cedar Wright into the Kashmir region to survey damage, assess avalanche danger to relief camps and deliver the gear into the high alpine villages.

Willie was deeply motivated to give back to the region that has supported him on so many climbs and has inspired this team to continue to explore.

The North Face began designing and manufacturing its own brand of high-performance mountaineering apparel and equipment, and in the early 1980s, extreme skiwear was added to the product offering. By the end of the decade, The North Face became the only supplier in the United States to offer a comprehensive collection of high-performance outerwear, skiwear, sleeping bags, packs and tents.

GlobalGiving was founded by two former World Bank executives who led the team that created the World Bank Development Marketplace, at which social entrepreneurs from around the world compete for grants.
