DeLorme Encourages Parents to Give the Best Gift of All this Christmas

womenofadventureDeLorme launched a campaign this week with a positive message: give your children the gift of adventure and change their lives forever.

You can watch a video entitled "The Best Gift of All," which features real Dads and daughters telling stories about their adventures together and how they were inspired to explore the outdoors.

Also featured are female adventurers who have broken boundaries and excelled in each of their chosen activities.

"Introducing children to new outdoor activities and places is one of the greatest gifts a parent can ever give. Outdoor adventures offer one of the best ways to teach integrity, self-esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills in ways that no other activity can. Plus, it creates a bond with the parent or mentor that every child yearns for," said Bryan Martin, executive director of Big City Mountaineers, a non-profit organization that seeks to transform the lives of under-served urban youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions.

"We believe that a meaningful experience in the outdoors has the ability to change a life. While Big City Mountaineers is making a huge difference for many kids, their greatest desire is to have these transformational life experiences with their mom, dad or close loved one. DeLorme's message is so critical and we applaud them -- and many other major outdoor brands -- for coming alongside our organization in support of getting more kids outside," Martin said.

Knowing that adventurers - especially parents and children - want to stay connected and safe, the DeLorme inReach SE satellite communicator offers 100% global coverage with very affordable, contract-free plans and is rapidly becoming the indispensable, highly versatile tool outdoor enthusiasts, global travelers, boaters, hunters and recreational aviators don't want to be without. The inReach Explorer model also helps reduce the number of people getting lost in the wilderness by integrating route planning, waypoint creation, and basic navigation, along with the ability to both send and receive text messages, 100% global coverage, GPS tracking and SOS alerting.
