5,000+ Meetup Members Decide to #OptOutside on Black Friday

Last week, we asked our Organizers to get their Meetups to #OptOutside in support of REI’s Black Friday campaign.  Today, we’re grateful to have hundreds of #OptOutside Meetups scheduled and thousands of Meetup members RSVPd to go.

REI believes that a life outside is a life well lived.  The 5 million Meetup members in Outdoors Meetups would agree, with one twist: a life sharing the outdoors with other people is even better.

If you’re inspired by #OptOutside and looking for a way to spend the day, embrace the spirit of the campaign and find the others who are opting outside and meeting up.  There are hundreds of great Meetups to choose from: hot air balloon adventures in PA, trail maintenance in CA, snow lovers hiking in MN….and I’m sure one near you. Go find it!
