Title: Donate your used SCUBA Equipment
Post by: MATT MATTISON on December 10, 2009, 12:40:11 PM
This is a great idea, I found this on another board so that is why I reposted.

Hi everyone,

I saw this post on Craigslist and thought was a good idea to post here. I know a few members of the SJ Flipper Dippers dive club, so I can be sure donated gear can get to the right place. If you're interested in donated your gear please let me know or contact Jim by his email below.

Give the gift of SCUBA!

-----------
The San Jose Flipper Dippers (http://www.sjflipperdippers.com (http://www.sjflipperdippers.com)) are collecting donations of used Scuba gear for the Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba ( http://www.sudsdiving.org (http://www.sudsdiving.org)) program. Diving allows all of us the freedom to enjoy a wonderful world away from all of life’s pressures, day to day realities, and also its tragedies. This freedom we experience is now being enjoyed by participants in a program called Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba (SUDS). SUDS is a chapter of the Wounded Warriors/Disabled Sports Project, which helps our wounded warriors who have suffered life changing injuries. SUDS is specifically looking for masks, fins, recreational BCD's (jacket style or weight integrated) regulators & 3mm wetsuits - either shorty or full that are less than 10 years old. If you have Scuba equipment in good condition you would like to donate and help our vets please send me an email.

I'm in contact with Jim of the SJ Flipper Dippers, so if you have donations we can meet somewhere halfway between the North Coast and San Jose.

Thanks!

That's a good idea Jason. Next club dive bring what you want to donate and I'll take it all to ER. I'm in Antioch and about 1hr.15mins. from San Jose. So me and ER could meet in Pleasanton to get the stuff to the SJ Flipper Dippers. Heck, the next Club Dive should be at Pt. Lobos, so I could drive to ER on the way back home, sweet!!!
