There are so many wonderful outdoor activities in Bend! People love to walk, bike & run in this beautiful place. The schools are nestled in bustling neighborhoods with most children walking or biking to school. You will also see many a dog walker at any given location in this dog-friendly town. I was also quite surprised to see so many people out at night wearing dark clothing. I can’t tell you how many times my husband comments about how unsafe it is! When you add in the fact that Bend is a town true to the natural environment, without a ton a street lights, it is even more important to be seen so that everyone is safe.
Shortly after we moved here, I was excited to learn a local Bend mom, Lori Thompson, was on a mission to help keep kids safe! She invented a visibility product called Exobright. Helmet covers & vests that are made with bright fabric and reflective elements to help people be seen & safe. These also fit ski helmets to help you keep a close eye on your little one going down the slopes!
Her company is growing and gaining momentum. Check out the article featured in the Cascade Business News in October to read more about her company & products.
In an effort to get more safety products into the hands of as many people as possible, Exobright is offering a special holiday discount. Customers get 10% off their purchase price and 10% of the profits also go to the school of your choice. COUPON CODE: 1516ELEM10. I love how Exobright is not only dedicated to keeping people safe, but they also give back to the community they are working so hard to protect!
Exobright products make the perfect gift or stocking stuffer. I am such a believer in this product that I want to spread the word to everyone beyond Bend. All my friends and family in Orlando & Austin (and everyone else around the world) need to know about Exobright visibility vests & helmet covers. You can’t put a price tag on your child’s safety!
