Peak Design, the worldwide leader in crowdfunding and everyday carry solutions, has announced it will donate 100% of profits from all Travel Tripods sold during the product’s April 7 launch through April 10, 2020. Profits will include both sales of tripods through PeakDesign.com and through retailers worldwide. Funds generated by the launch will be donated to the CDC Foundation to support their efforts on the front-lines of COVID-19 response, and to Climate Neutral, an organization helping businesses from all industries verifiably achieve carbon neutrality.
Peak Design depends on a global network of partners to ensure their products are safely manufactured and delivered. The launch of the Travel Tripod is an opportunity for Peak Design to continue to financially support their colleagues while helping to address two global crises.
“In the midst of these strange times, there are some unique things a company like Peak Design can do to make an impact beyond ensuring the health and safety of our own employees. For one, we can do our best to keep the economic engines going by keeping our contractors and partners gainfully and safely employed,” says Adam Saraceno, CMO, Peak Design. “Secondly, we can donate the money we make to those who are working to solve the problem. We’ve chosen to do both.”
The Peak Design Travel Tripod was originally launched on Kickstarter in May 2019 and raised $12.1 million from 27,168 backers. Customers can choose between carbon fiber (MSRP: $599) and aluminum alloy (MSRP: $349.95) starting April 7, at 12 am PST.
