    Citizenship

    For seven years JRB has supported the ATC, CDTA and AHS as well as the forum communities of Whiteblaze.net and Hammockforums.net. This year we have decided to broaden our role as good corporate citizens and initiate an effort to support the American Cancer Society.We have livened up the selection of summer top quilts, actually down throws, Jacozies, and have a little fun supporting the American Cancer Society.

    A special, limited production run of all pink or all teal down throws is available until current quantities are gone. These down simple quilt throws are sized exactly as our popular Shenandoah quilt. They have a sewn foot box. They are intended for use as throws in the home or as top quilts by the summer camper. They do not have any of the standard JRB corner tabs or side ladder loops. Consequently they will not function as under quilts and they are just a bit lighter, at approximately 13.9 ounces, than the Shenandoah quilts. They all have 800 fp down. A portion of the proceeds of the JRB Jacozy sales will go to the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research and prostate cancer research.

    That's good stuff. I just asked my wife which one she liked and she said both. Time to save pennies again...

    It is a story best left for the "hangs" but suffice to say, as cancer survivors it was a celebratory hike over Old Ragged Mountain in SNP in 2002 that returned us to hiking with the diversion into the ultralight and hammock worlds... Ten years come to think of it.

    PS... if you like the colors, add a top draw cord ( or not) and they are a sweet deal on TQs.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for your support! Having a father who succumbed to this terrible disease, and a mother who is a three time survivor, this hits home.

    Thank you again.....

    Glad to hear you guys are doing this. My mother is a thyroid cancer survivor, and my grandfather is a prostate cancer survivor, they will enjoy hearing about this.
