We're extremely fortunate to work in an industry that we love, and that involves playing in the water behind a boat.  All of us that have the means to enjoy wakeboarding and wakesurfing with our friends and family's live very privileged lives. Periodically there are times when we are called to help those that are less fortunate.  We're in one of those times now as hundreds of thousands of fellow humans are fighting for their lives.  The entire nation of Haiti is in ruins, and without some assistance from outside their borders, recovery to their meager living conditions prior to the earthquake will be difficult if not impossible. We've teamed up with Red Cross to make that happen, and are pledging 10% of all sales for the next week to international aid organization.  Here are the details:
  • 10% of all orders placed between 1/18/2010 and 1/25/2010 will be donated to the Red Cross for their Haiti Earthquake victim relief efforts.
  • There is no limit to the amount or size of orders you can place that qualify.
  • If you would like to donate directly you may do so on the RedCross.org website, or by texting Haiti to 90999 from any mobile phone in the US.
We realize this gesture may be relatively small in comparison the needs of the Haitian people, and we certainly encourage you to make a larger individual donation directly through Red Cross or the non-profit of your choice.  If you've been thinking about buying some wakeboard ballast though, there's never been a better time to get the products you want, and also help those in need.  Every little bit counts, and it won't cost you anything. If you have any questions about how donations will be made, or what ballast is right for your wakeboard boat, feel free to contact a ballast expert toll free at (888) 338-6085 or by email at sales@wakemakers.com.
