CARLSBAD, Calif.—SPY® was Happy to Help raise funds over the past week for the victims of the Colorado flooding by donating $30 from every sunglass sale on www.spyoptic.com. The funds went directly to the Foothills Flood Relief Fund in their efforts to provide aid and shelter for the victims and families of those affected by the devastating natural disaster.
During the span of nine days in September, heavy rains drenched the entire state of Colorado with a record 9.08 inches falling in Boulder County within a 24-hour period. County rainfall totals for central Colorado reached over 20 inches—the yearly average—over the 10-day weather event causing some rivers to exceed flood stage for 60 hours. With over 12,000 people under mandatory evacuation, an additional 1000 residents were rescued in dangerous flash flood conditions in the biggest airlift operation since Hurricane Katrina.
As the flood waters continue to recede and damages are assessed statewide, the residents of Colorado look to rebuild their lives and communities with the winter season approaching. Please join SPY in providing a helping hand to support our brothers and sisters in Colorado by donating to Foothills Flood Relief Fund during this critical time.

About Happy to Help: In this life, the same people that make us happy everyday are also the first people to drop everything and pick us up in times of tragedy. A strong community provides security and exhibits dedication, and this notion inspired SPY® to create the HAPPY TO HELP program designed to raise funds for victims of natural disasters. Whether you are a loyal SPY customer or not, if you’re out there doing what you love and striving to make this world a better place, you’re part of our community.

About SPY Inc.: We have a HAPPY disrespect for the usual way of looking (at life). This mindset helps drive us to design, market and distribute premium products for people who “live” to be outdoors, doing intense action sports, motorsports, snow sports, cycling and multi-sports—the things that make them HAPPY. We actively support the lifestyle subcultures that surround these pursuits, and as a result our products serve the broader fashion, music and entertainment markets of the youth culture. Our reason for being is to create the unusual, and this is what helps us deliver distinctive products to people who are active, fun and a bit irreverent, like us. It’s what makes us HAPPY, and our customers, too. Our principal products—sunglasses, goggles and prescription frames—are happily marketed with fun and creativity under the SPY® brand.
