HikingBoots.com has joined forces with American Hiking Society, a national nonprofit organization. The online hiking specialty superstore seeks to collect donations to aid the charity in promoting and preserving U.S. trails.
Starting today, customers can make a charitable donation to American Hiking Society while making a purchase at HikingBoots.com. The option to donate is available during the checkout process. Customers can choose from a range of dollar amounts as an add-on to their purchase, with proceeds going directly to American Hiking Society.
“We are very happy to establish this great new partnership with HikingBoots.com,” said Gregory Miller, President of American Hiking Society. “By providing an easy way for their customers to help protect trails and the hiking experience, the folks at HikingBoots.com have demonstrated their understanding of how important it is to protect the special places where we all love to hike, bike, camp, canoe and fish.”
As a previous donor to American Hiking Society, the team at HikingBoots.com is well aware of the organization’s dedication to policy and advocacy issues supporting national trails.
“We couldn’t think of a better organization to form an alliance with than American Hiking Society,” said Chad Weinman, CEO of HikingBoots.com. “They are the true champions of the trail and have really led the way on a number of conservation issues.”
Created by conservationists passionate about trail preservation in 1976, American Hiking Society’s mission continues to be promoting and protecting foot trails and the hiking experience. The organization is responsible for creating National Trails Day®, an annual day of education, stewardship and celebration that attracts more than 150,000 participants and takes place across all fifty states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.
