About The GnarJar
GnarJar is a fundraiser effort developed by
The Injured Riders Foundation that will involve the entire action sports community to help people who get injured with limited or no health insurance.

The GNARJAR concept is a glass jar that is filled with INJUREDRIDERS.ORG black wrist bands that will be sold for $2. The jar is filled with 150 wrist bands and the shops can purchase the jar here for $250.00 a piece. The glass jar is something that shops can place in their shops and spread awareness and help raise funds.


The bracelets

These are the official GnarJar wrist bands which can be pushed for only 4.00$
100% of the products go to the IRF.  It says on the site that they are exclusively out of the main GNARJAR at the IRF offices.

Now, I keep mentioning the IRF. Just what is the IRF?

About The Inured Riders Foundation 
The Injured Riders Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Organization that is dedicated to helping ALL PEOPLE hurt while participating in action sports who have no insurance or who are under insured. In the past year The IRF Foundation has already handled over $120,000 in medical bills for injured athletes. The Foundation is in the current process of assisting more athletes right now and have new riders filling out our eligibility form everyday.

So how can you help?
On the IRF site it says "Supporting the injured can't be accomplished without your help. Please join our mission and
DONATE. We welcome all levels of donation, whether it's a one-time gift, a monthly donation, volunteering, becoming a corporate sponsor, purchasing our custom gifts, or shopping one of our sponsored online retailers."


So, 4.00$ isn't a lot of money guys, and it goes to a really good cause.

Let's do some good and help some people :)

It's kind of crazy for me, because I live in Canada, like if I have to go to the ER it's free (or more free then yours)

So it boggles my mind, and I can't imagine getting into a bad sports accident in the states

Definitely gonna be picking up a couple of these once the money comes around. Gotta support those hurt shredders, get 'em back on their feet.

It cost me 100 or more to walk in when I fell on my arm, and that was just for them to look at me, tell me I fainted, and send me home. I was there for all of 20 minutes. I can't imagine an actual injury that requires extended stay.

And that was with insurance, which a lot of riders don't have. :(
