Helptoberfest & Ice Age Trail Alliance

 Helptoberfest is hiking down the trail and off into the sunset with the Ice Age Trail Alliance being the final beneficiary this year. Now through October 31st, Aina Clothing will donate 15% of sales to help support their mission to create, support and protect a thousand-mile footpath tracing Ice Age formations across Wisconsin.


More than 12,000 years ago, an immense flow of glacial ice sculpted a landscape of remarkable beauty across Wisconsin. As the glacier retreated, it left behind a variety of unique landscape features. These glacial remnants are now considered among the world’s finest examples of how continental glaciation sculpts our planet.

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a thousand-mile footpath that highlights these landscape features as it travels through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas. The Trail is entirely within Wisconsin and is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails.

They put them to work in our parks and public lands and urban green spaces to make improvements and learn conservation and sustainability practices. They teach them how to plan, enact, and lead, all while making a tangible impact in conservation.

SCA members protect, enhance, and restore national parks, marine sanctuaries, cultural landmarks, and urban green spaces across the United States. They serve year-round in programs lasting anywhere from two weeks to twelve months.

Helptoberfest & American Rivers

Next up for Helptoberfest is American Rivers, and now through October 18th Aina Clothing will donate 15% of sales to these protectors of rivers and clean water.

Healthy rivers are vital to fish and wildlife and support outdoor activity and healthy lifestyles.

Forty-four percent of assessed waterways in the U.S. are too polluted for fishing and swimming.

American Rivers protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers, and conserves clean water for people and nature. Since 1973, American Rivers has protected and restored more than 150,000 miles of rivers. To do this, they build partnerships and work closely with local river advocates, business and agriculture interests, recreation groups and others to forge win-win solutions.

Helptoberfest

Back in late September of 2013 I was having a crappy day when I received an email that lifted my spirits. Someone that I know took a minute of their time to do something that probably would seem small and trivial to most, but could result in a positive outcome. It got me thing about an article that an old high school friend had recently wrote; “Stand Up For Something, Staying Good At Life”. The major part of the article is “Assistance comes in many forms. Volunteer in your community. Help by giving someone a good referral. Put in a good word for someone. Hold open a door for someone. Make a donation. Be active in your community. Smile at someone.” So I came up with this idea for the month, Helptoberfest and for the month of October I posted about different charities, events and inspirational quotes. I skipped last year for whatever reason, but this year I want to expand upon this idea. For the month of October I will donate 15% of sales to charities and organizations that are environmentally and/or outdoor focused. I’ll donate to five different groups, one will be highlighted for a six day period. If you are involved with or know of one that you would like to see featured let me know. Aina is a very small business, it won’t be a lot of coin, but every bit helps.

Hopefully this reminds you to “Stay Good At Life”.
