This holiday season, we want to encourage you to give. To give purpose, kindness, joy and much more to your families, friends and local communities.
Gearhead Outfitters is committed to providing you with great brands that take giving back seriously. Whether through environmental sustainability, corporate responsibility, giving back through jobs, or creating their own non-profits, we are proud to carry brands who practice philanthropy everyday.
Today our brand spotlight is Lokai. You may have seen these unique bracelets, but not known their story. A circle of clear beads, with one white and one black, these bracelets were created by the founder of Lokai as a reminder to keep balance in ones life.
Inside of every white bead there is water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth. In the black bead there is mud from the Dead Sea — the lowest point. "Sometimes you’ve hit a low, stay hopeful. Sometimes you’re on top of the world, stay humble." This phrase is embodied with these beads. Everyone has a story to tell, and goes through different difficult and also exulting seasons. These bracelets are a reminder to always keep your balance.
"Life is full of joy and sadness, and we can all relate to its highs and lows. I hope that lokai will remind you to stay balanced and centered along your journey."
-Steven Izen, Founder of lokai
Lokai also donates 10% of every sale to a charitable organization they are partnered with. They have created special, limited edition colored bracelets to support Charity:Water, Susan G. Komen, World Wildlife Fund and Save the Children, along with many community charities.
We are thankful for this brand that gives back in such a specific and tangible way, and we encourage you to consider these as great stocking stuffers and small gifts, that make a larger impact.
