Everyone should know that American Beta just donated a very large amount.



Additionally....these partners donated a significant amount as well.


Alterra Sport Group Inc
M. A. P. Engineering
Highway Dirt Bikes


These companies don't make these donations for advertising, as they have big hearts and a willingness to help. But I made the decision to let you know what they have done, as I choose to do business with companies like these.

I choose to believe positive and I think Mark K's actions are only a small part of what the whole KLIM family is doing.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend, but when you use the Klim name to entice people to donate I thought it was a fair question. Great job on leading the cause!

You MUST call in to our office 877-379-6053
and say you are purchasing a KLIM Master Collection.

After the 3rd sale is complete we will donate via RMAR.

Thanks,
Bill & Butler Maps

Thank you Bill. This is really generous.

What do you say folks? These are awesome maps!!!!

You're welcome John. Glad to help out!
Hopefully we will have some $ to you asap.

We considered sending some $ directly, but this way we can offer more and create a win-win for 3 of our customers. If they so desire (and let me know who they are) i'll post their names so people can see who helped out.

RMAR is cutting a check this week, but there is no reason to shut this down, as we could send a second and third check down the road.

So yes, make your donation.


Mark K, I am going to suggest that you suggest to the family, that they set up a method of donation directly to them....maybe their own PayPal account and donors can contribute directly to them. Let us know.
