    ... and if we just ... Tread Lightly!'s 5th Annual Ebay Charity Auction (LIVE NOW!!!!)

    Good evening everyone! We are happy to announce that for the 5th year, we'll be running our Ebay charity auction! This is a HUGE fundraiser for us, so as you're planning for your winter holiday shopping and such, keep this opportunity in mind. More than 50 companies have donated more than 100 products to Tread Lightly! for our Fifth Annual Charity Auction on eBay in an effort to raise money for solutions to urgent outdoor recreation issues such as restricted recreation access due to irresponsible behavior. The auction will be held November 1-11, 2012. Big ticket items this year include a Gator XUV 625i utility vehicle and a Toy Gator donated by John Deere.

    100% of the money raised will go to help keep access to trails and recreation sites open to the public. The auction also includes plenty of 44 accessories, power sports equipment and outdoor gear. Bids will start at 40 to 60 percent below retail prices.

    More information and products coming soon!

    Does all this stuff just get posted automatically? Otherwise, I'd think about customizing your posts to the audience.

    It does not. However, I will admit to a little bit of "time savings" and copy/paste. Granted, I do try to keep things general enough to cover multiple audiences whenever possible so that I don't alienate any forums. You guys and Snowest (snowmobiles) are really the only two forums we currently cover that are not trail-based motorized.

    Recommendation noted. Thank you.




    Of course... that said. You don't want any floor mats or Otterboxes?!?!?!

    And here we go!

    More than 50 companies have donated more than 100 products to the nonprofit organization Tread Lightly! for its Fifth Annual Charity Auction on eBay in an effort to raise money for solutions to urgent outdoor recreation issues such as restricted recreation access due to irresponsible behavior. The auction is live from today through November 11th. Visit the auction at the link below. Don't see what you were looking for? Keep an eye out, products will be uploaded throughout the day!

    Why support Tread Lightly! through the eBay auction? Well, here's an answer for you.

    Weve developed some remarkable new programs to help grow the number of good stewards and educated recreationists to help protect recreation access, said Tread Lightly!s executive director Lori McCullough. Weve begun implementation, but we need help from the outdoor recreation community. Money raised from this auction is paramount in helping us save access and curtail closures.

    Happy bidding!

    Just a reminder that items are starting to close!

    We have products from Otterbox, Rugged Ridge, and HMK to name a few... ALL CLOSING WITHIN 12 HOURS!

    This is the perfect chance to shop for that outdoors family member or friend for the holiday season, not to mention helping us continue our outreach and stewardship programs aimed at maintaining responsible access towards the areas we all enjoy.
