Back in November of 2013 we unleashed our current batch of Moots Ti Sticks on the world. These bike race noise makers have now raised about 9,000 dollars for great causes in just 3 years of building them. You can see my original post for the 2013 version here: MOOTS TI STICKS
Raising money to benefit THE GREAT COLORADO FLOOD RELIEF PROJECT went more than just well…it went great. The Moots Ti Sticks hit our web store and within 24 hours we had sold all 31 of them at 100 buck each. That’s 3100 dollars directly to Colorado Flood victims. Great job to all of you that bought one and supported our fellow Coloradans!
This last week we attended Cyclocross Nationals in Boulder, CO and had a great time. Races, friends and parties. But, one of the most satisfying moments of the event was handing a check off to Scott Brooks of The Great Colorado Flood Relief organization from all of you.
Scott was raised in the areas that were hardest hit by the floods in September and even before the water receded he knew he had to help. Before he knew it he was the director of the non-profit. He came by our booth on Friday during CXNats and walked the grounds of Valmont. He could see this passionate group of cyclists out there giving it their all. I explained to him that our cycling family both near and far really cares for each other and the 3100.00 we raised came from the heart of that family. I think he was in shock.
