Update #22

Runaway Train!!!

1 comment

The past couple of days have been absolutely CRAZY!!! Your outpouring of support has been a complete validation of the countless hours I have poured into Bosavi. THANK YOU!!! 


I also want to thank all of the “Give One Get One” backers and the “Angel Contributors”. Thanks to you, Bosavi is donating more than $6,000 worth of headlamps and solar chargers to the North West Outward Bound School and their scholarship students. I truly believe that getting young people into the wild is the best way to protect our natural environment. As Bosavi transitions into a profitable business we will make environmental philanthropy a cornerstone of our business, especially through financial contributions to programs like Outward Bound. Thank you for helping us get a great start! 


I also wanted to tell you that I bought my very own TiGr bike lock yesterday!!! My bike is my only vehicle and I am very attached to it. I bought the 1.25” bow which is the same model that TiGr has donated to Bosavi for the raffle. Mine is already in the mail, so stay tuned for the un-boxing in a future update. And check out the destructive test of this lock. Awesome!

The raffle for your lock will be held tomorrow. Thursday, June 14th. 


And now, the moment you have all been waiting for… Another power animal...

I think this started out as a plant and was then turned into an animal.  What do you think?

      LOVE this power-plant :)
      If I were in biofuels I would want this guy to be my mascot!
