Do you believe we can be great?

I have never lost faith, which is why we're still here today

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great makes you feel that you, too, can become great.” — Mark Twain

In 2015, we found ourselves at a crossroads: Either find $5,000 or go out of business.

We found a little nonprofit company called Kiva, which does 0% interest crowdfunded loans.

To our AMAZEMENT, it was funded by our Outlaw community in record time (we broke the Kiva record!), and we used that money very prudently, keeping our Outlaw family informed about the loan.

Over the years, we have been paying back and renewing that loan, each time for more money, and each time with bigger results.

This loan enables us to be greater than we are.

And that's why we need your help with our newest loan, which you can find here: https://www.kiva.org/lend-beta/2300096

The details are on the loan page, but this is not a gift and it is not charity. You will be paid back, Hell or high water.

With this loan, we will:

  1. Start the Life on the Mountain scent experience project, which is going to bring the seasonal changes of the forest to your daily life.
  2. Improve our distribution, starting the process of getting our products closer to you, wherever you are.
  3. Continue to build our content, which people seem to love. We believe there are travel guides to be written and interviews to be conducted! There's a world to explore with our words.
  4. Improve our packaging. Currently, our Amazon packaging process is tedious, expensive, and time consuming. Amazon is barely profitable. This loan would enable us to streamline that packaging.

We need 20 friends of Outlaw to put in the first contributions before the project goes live on the Kiva platform. Would you be one of those friends? If so, here's that link: https://www.kiva.org/lend-beta/2300096

Ultimately, we are raising $15,000 through this loan. It's one of those all or nothing deals, so if we don't hit that $15,000, we get $0. But I believe in us and I believe in Outlaw.

If you believe too, please consider contributing to our loan: https://www.kiva.org/lend-beta/2300096
