Just in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks (CPANP) is launching an online storefront to boost the Coalition’s work protecting national parks and the National Park Service (NPS) mission. The storefront for the CPANP-branded merchandise is available at www.HelpSaveNationalParks.org.
CPANP Chair Maureen Finnerty said: “We have been hearing for years that people want to support the unique group that the Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks brings together. As a non-partisan, independent organization, it can be challenging for us to raise funds. We thought this was an interesting way that people who visit and love the parks could show their support for our mission.”
Visitors to thewww.HelpSaveNationalParks.org storefront are greeted with this message: “The Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks is an independent, non-partisan organization with over 1,400 members, who are all current, former, and retired employees of the National Park Service (NPS). With nearly 35,000 years of combined service, we focus on the preservation and protection of America’s most precious natural and cultural resources. We use our voice to defend national monuments, to stop budget cuts and to protect our public lands from energy development. Your purchase helps the Coalition continue its work to support the NPS mission, the parks and NPS employees from a growing numbers of threats. Thank you for your support of this important work!”
Featured items on the storefront branded with the “Our Blood Runs Green” message include t-shirts, sweatshirts, baseball caps, beach bags, messenger bags, kid’s clothing, water bottles and other drinkware, and a variety of lower-cost “stocking stuffer” items, including notepads, golf balls, stickers and mouse pads.
The CPANP’s storefront is powered by CafePress.com.
