Here at Joules, there’s nothing more important to us than family, community and nature. We are so obviously inspired by our natural world, from the subtle details in our hand painted prints to our focus on functional (and fashionable) rainwear for the entire family. These values run deep within our veins and our goal is to encourage positive outdoor experiences and get back to nature, whatever the weather!
That’s exactly why we’ve partnered with Hike it Baby. Hike it Baby is a non profit organization whose mission is to connect families with babies and young children to the outdoors and to each other. They are a community that spans across over 300 cities in North America and host thousands of hikes to promote family outdoor adventures! Last spring, we were able to sponsor 5 hikes across the country, from San Francisco, CA all the way to Charleston, SC. Hike leaders sported our trusty Right as Rain collection while leading families through a Joules Spring Scavenger Hunt and ending the day with a giveaway!
Did we mention that they are also super down to earth? (pun intended)
No matter what your level of experience, Hike it Baby provides the most effective hub of tools and information for every family! The goal is to enable confidence and a sense of community through hiking.
Now we understand that not everyone is able to ‘get outside’ these days, and whilst staying strictly within the lines of government advice, Hike it Baby and Joules are teaming up to host an April Showers Bring May Flowers Virtual Puddle Stomping Event on May 8, 2020.
Our hope is to spread a little sunshine, share the feeling of connection through community and hopefully add joy and laughter to your day because you don’t need clear blue skies to find magic in the great outdoors. To get you in the spirit of adventure, we’ve rounded up a rainy-day playlist for you and your littles below. Dancing in the rain is highly encouraged!
