Cody Townsend is Taking COVID-19 Seriously. So Should You.

The latest episode of The Fifty Project doesn’t feature any epic mountaineering, face shots, or Cody Townsend scaring the sh*t out himself. Instead, it’s a reality check. COVID-19 has turned our world upside down, and it’s time to reassess what matters most right now. For Townsend, that means halting a project he’s devoted his life to, so he can stay at home and keep the disease from spreading. If Townsend can lay low right now, so can you.

But his message isn’t all doom and gloom. Instead of lamenting about the missed days skiing or being cooped up at home, he suggests a more proactive use for our time: How you can help your community? Who needs groceries right now? Is there a struggling small business you could support? Or someone you can call that might need a friendly hello? So, let's use Townsend’s message to inspire some good news. 

We’ll be back in the mountains soon, but for now, let’s be there for one and another (6ft away of course).

Five Blind Veterans Complete the Ultimate Kayaking Trip Down The Grand Canyon

1% for the Planet Makes it Effortless to Support the Outdoors

On our film posters, trailers, and credits you may have noticed the recurring logo for 1% for the Planet. No, they’re not a title sponsor of our projects, inversely, we support the important work that they’re doing for the environment. Right now only 3% of philanthropy is directed to environmental causes, and 1% for the Planet is hoping to be the catalyst to expand that statistic.
