Hey all you wonderful readers, thanks again for following along. One World One Year is kicking off 2015 in style by rewarding one of you with an awesome Cotopaxi backpack shipped right to your door!

We’ve been big fans of Cotopaxi since getting to know their Utah team before our departure and have been sharing articles on their blog during our trip. Not only do their products provide great functionality for outdoor and travel adventures, but Cotopaxi does it with such a great look and a Human Lifespan Guarantee, (that’s 61 years).

Then there’s the added bonus–and the main mission of the company–that with every product you purchase, Cotopaxi donates proceeds to help others in need. Each item they make and sell is linked to a specific humanitarian cause somewhere in the world. For example–buy the Cusco pack and help educate a child in Peru for one week at Qosko Maqi.
