If you look to the right sidebar you’ll see a graphic that proudly states that I am a Greenfish Ambassador. What that signifies is that I like what Greenfish stands for, and because of my involvement as an author in the fly fishing community, I’ve been granted status as an Ambassador. In that capacity I am not obligated to do anything, but I do stand by the Greenfish mission to support sustainable fisheries. It’s a good deal. They’re a company promoting not only their brand, but conservation.
Greenfish donates 5% of every sale to a conservation group of your designation. From the Greenfish website:
GreenFish partners with various companies and organizations that we support financially as well as philosophically. Through the “GreenFish Gives” program, each time you buy a product from us you can select one of our partner organizations where you would like 5% of your purchase to be donated. GreenFish then makes a quarterly donation to each of these groups who support our mission based on your purchases. All GreenFish partners share common values: to encourage sustainable fishing as a means of protecting fisheries and the environment while also promoting the sport of recreational fishing.
Anyway, let’s cut to the chase. Because of my status as a Greenfish Ambassador, I can offer you an opportunity to purchase Greenfish gear at a 20% discount by simply using this discount code when you place your order: 00145CW.
Yes, there is a benefit to me.
I get 10% of sales that are made using my discount code. However, and this is the key–I am not pocketing that 10%.
Through sales of my Olive books I support Casting 4 A Cure and am participating in their fundraiser in Victor, Idaho in August. Casting 4 A Cure, if you are not aware, is an organization that uses two annual fly fishing events to raise funding for research to find a cure for Rett Syndrome, which is a cruel neurological disorder affecting mostly young girls. A buddy of mine is joining me on this trip and I am trying to raise $4000 for our entry fees.
So when you place a Greenfish order, you’re contributing to conservation, getting a 20% discount on some sweet swag, kicking 10% my way, which in turn goes directly to Casting 4 a Cure. Pretty cool, eh?
This promotion expires September 1, 2011- but please don’t wait because I need to raise the money for Casting 4 A Cure by the end of June.
Please repost this – pass the discount code around to others who you think might be interested, and thanks for your help and support. Here is the code once again: 00145CW. Click on over to Greenfish and check out their cool stuff, please.
