Yes! I need sponsored! What can I get out of Backpacking Light?
Backpacking Light offers no-strings-attached one-time “grants” that include:
- Lifetime Unlimited Memberships ($199+ value, but no charge to you)
- Lifetime access to the Ultralight Backpacking Boot Camp Online Course ($150 value, no charge to you)
- Wilderness Adventures Trek Enrollment Discount ($100 off)
OK, what’s the fine print? What do I have to do for Backpacking Light?
That seems weird. You can’t get something for nothing.
It’s not weird. Sponsorship agreements that put you in an obligatory position are weird, and can strain relationships.
No, seriously, c’mon. Do you need me to carry business cards, promote your products and services, talk about you on social media, put your logo on my website, what’s the catch?
Nope, none of that. We want you to be successful. Don’t worry about us. Sponsorship agreements, contracts, etc. are distracting. Just go do your thing and enjoy what you can with what we have to offer.
OK, but what if I want to share my journey with the BPL Community?
We’d love that! Here’s our info for authors.
I’m not an athlete, or an expert, or a blogger, and I have no social skills.
But you have dreams, yes? That’s good enough for us.
OK, so can I use your logo on my website?
If you want, go ahead if that helps you.
What do I have to do to apply?
- Submit a support ticket with “Sponsorship Request” in the subject line.
- Tell us about yourself, and what sort of adventure you are planning.
How many grants do you plan on giving out?
At least two, and up to five per quarter. Depends on how we’re doing with seasonal cash flow.
But I need cash, and gear. How about some of that, yo?
If you use Backpackinglight.com to learn and research, take our online course, and join us on a trek, you’ll need less cash and gear, because you’ll be a lot smarter and will make better decisions about what to buy and how to spend your money…!
