It’s Time To Gear Up for a Cause – 2016!

We’re doing it AGAIN!  It’s that time of year to Gear Up for a Cause!  OpticsPlanet has selected Hope For The Warriors® as this year’s charity.  During this six week campaign, May 9th through June 19th, a portion of EVERY sale will generate a donation to Hope For The Warriors® in our goal to meet $50,000 in contributions. This is twice as much as we donated to last year’s charity!


Here’s how it works:  When you place an order at through June 19th, your purchase will trigger a donation.  OpticsPlanet will set aside a portion of net proceeds to donate to Hope For The Warriors®. To make it even better, each one of our 10 charity partners have agreed to give as much as FIVE TIMES their sales proceeds towards their donation.  For more information visit



OpticsPlanet’s customer base is full of current and past military, and we made sure to pick a great cause.  As a customer, you can be assured that a portion of your purchase during the six week campaign will go to a very reputable charity.  You don’t want to miss the discount opportunities we’ll be running, so make sure to sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of any webpage!

After making sure we chose the right charity, we wanted to make sure that we chose quality charity partners.  This year our partners have committed to donating FIVE TIMES the amount of the standard donation.  If you order any product from these partners during the Gear Up for a Cause campaign, you are ensuring a larger donation to this great cause.  The 2016 charity partners are: Vortex, Sellmark (Pulsar), Vista Outdoor (Bushnell), Crimson Trace, Nikon, Streamlight, Leupold, Steiner, EOTech, and Trijicon.


Hope For The Warriors®




Hope For The Warriors® is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in North Carolina in 2006 aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune as they witnessed, firsthand, the effects of war on their families and communities. Hope For The Warriors is dedicated to serving those who have served. They provide a full cycle of care to restore self, family, and hope to post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen. Hope For The Warriors® mission is to help those touched by military service to succeed at home by restoring their sense of self, family, and hope. Nationally, Hope For The Warriors® provides comprehensive support programs for service members, veterans, and military families that are focused on transition, health and wellness, peer engagement, and connections to community resources.




They have done many great things for Veterans in their 10 years, and are enjoying their accolade of being in their fifth year as a 4 star charity at Charity Navigator.  As anyone who understands the complexities of charitable causes, that is an easy feat!  Their A Warriors Wish® grant provides injured veterans, and even sick family members, a chance of fulfilling their dreams.  From Disney World trips to Bass boats and campers, they do it all!  They’ve donated racing bicycles to injured veterans, and also provide Sports and Recreation programs.  It doesn’t stop there!  They provide Clinical Health & Wellness; Transition Services; Community Engagement and Development;  the list just goes on and on.
