Blk Nimbus Christmas Tree Lassen

In scorching 90-degree heat, climbing over 8,500 feet in elevation, Mt. Lassen really took us for a ride. The uphill climb was immensely brutal, but the spectacular view and sulfur pools were enough to climb it several times over. As our third time there, and with less practiced hikers, we opted not to do Lassen Peak, which boasts 10,000+ feet; even higher than Half Dome in Yosemite. Instead, we indulged … Read More →

Nimbus Takes on Half Dome

horses

With summer nearing an end, the Nimbus squad has been indulging in every bit of sun outdoors as possible. All of our free time has been dedicated to connecting with the environment, physicality, and ourselves. However, we had spent so much time in local timbers and woodlands that we decided to push ourselves a bit and take on Half Dome in Yosemite (Look left!). The uphill, 16.4 mile round trip … Read More →

Bedtime is an important occasion for any child. It stands for a time of security and comfort where children can rest for another day of learning and exploration. However, for homeless children, this luxury often exists only as a dream. With Project Night Night, a safe and restful bedtime has been made a reality by providing these children in shelters from birth to pre-teen with childhood essentials. Living without a … Read More →

Rocket Dog Rescue

Rocket Dog Rescue (RDR) has dedicated 10 years to saving dogs from overcrowded shelters. Their focus is on the dogs that you often see at the shelter huddled in a corner, or looking too ferocious to take home—dogs that have lived a less than comfortable existence, with a history of pain and neglect. They are the social rejects that perhaps at one point had a chance of becoming a socialized … Read More →

charity: water

charity: water, one of our partners for this quarter, stands as one of the most vital. Though each project we work with pushes to make the world a better place, this program focuses on the simplest, most fundamental need for life: clean water. And though it is something that we take for granted living in the first world, there are a number of places, where many do not have access … Read More →

Bottle Your Own Water

Research shows that bottled water sales are declining as more and more people are beginning to understand the misrepresentations of the industry, and the damaging effects it has on people, the community, and the environment. Bottled water companies are pushing a product that makes major profits from a natural resource that is in no way different from tap water; comes in a petro-chemical container (plastic); and produces vast amounts of … Read More →
