I am excited to be part of a company that does more than just sell a product. TravelChair is not just another camp chair manufacturer, we’re about more than just getting a product into someone’s hands and running to the bank. We are a company that is shaped and molded by its employees. Our value system takes the form of a product and service and we accomplish this mission through a continued process of refinement. With encouraging development of current partnerships and finding inspiration and new friends along the way, work turns into fun and a way of life. That’s what it is all about for us at TravelChair.
So what exactly does that look like?
It unfolds, pun intended, in many ways here. Whether we partner with our local Rescue Mission, help fund global impact outreaches like Beyond 5 to help end malaria through sales of our Insect Shield Chair or raise funds for camps with our chairs.
This week, for instance, it is evident that we like to have fun, and it takes shape in the way of a community outreach.
This Friday we are excited to participate in The Chair Affair. The Chair affair is an annual fundraiser put on by our new friends at the NW Furniture Bank, a Tacoma based non-profit. This Affair raises funds by artists donating their time and talent to creating art out of furniture, which is then put up for auction. Artists range from members of the Famous Tacoma Museum of Glass Hot Shop team to the inspirational Todd Fisher – you can see his work below on our TravelChair Classic Bubba Folding Camp Chair.
This should give you a little more insight as to what drives us. For me, For us, it is about process, the experience and impact we create along the way in our community. To us, It’s an honor and a privilege to be part of a meaningful company that has influence and does stuff that matters… and meets some pretty cool people along the way.
I encourage you to join us this Friday, 4/12/12, 6 to 9PM, at the NW Furniture Bank’s annual fundraiser, the Chair Affair, and meet some of our friends.
