Did you know that 88% of veterans want to continue their service through disaster relief? Half of profits from our Zindandel and our 2012 Red Blend support the troops through our nonprofit partner, Team Rubicon.
In 2015, Team Rubicon added another 10,000+ members, greatly increasing their ability to respond whenever and wherever disaster may strike. In total, over 30,000 veterans, first responders, and kickass civilians have joined Team Rubicon.
Team Rubicon deployed teams after the earthquake in Nepal and in response to the floods in Texas. So far, Team Rubicon has responded to over 100 disasters since its founding in 2010.
Additionally, over 200 Team Rubicon members trained as Type 2 Wildland Firefighters with the Bureau of Land Management. And with a busy fire season, members deployed with the BLM to fight fires in Alaska, Washington, Wyoming, and California.
Team Rubicon also welcomed the third cohort of the Clay Hunt Fellows, a program designed to provide our veterans with unique leadership and training opportunities to help enhance Team Rubicon’s ability to expand and respond to disasters.
At Team Rubicon, they like to say disasters are our business, but veterans are our passion. Thank you for supporting us as we help those affected by disasters and provide our veterans with a new community, purpose, and identity.
