Supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs



Working with local communities is an important part of being a small business. Not only does it create a sense of rootedness, but it also helps uplift communities by investing back in the places that helped you thrive and creates opportunities for others. And so unlike many large corporations, Dragon Blood Balm both participates in and donates back into the communities within which we operate.

That's why we're excited to participate in the Triangle Rock Club's Climbathon in Raleigh, North Carolina. Like our previous donations in New York City, we're again excited to bridge two things that are near and dear for us: climbing and helping kids.

Here's what that entails:

Together on October 30th we will be climbing for five straight hours with just 30 minutes of rest to see what team can log the most ascents. As Team Dragon Blood Balm, this will help raise money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties.

Your support will directly help youth through The Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties (BGCDOC), a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to educating and protecting children while preserving the beauty and innocence of childhood. "We aim to make a fundamental difference in the lives of all youth, but especially those who need guidance the most by providing a safe alternative for youth between the ages of 6 and 18."

Team Dragon Blood Balm is led by our cofounder Boris Bernadsky, and supported by local Raleigh climbers. In addition to donating directly, Dragon Blood Balm will be donating 15% of all sales from October 1-30 to support this effort.

Update, November 22:

Over the course of October, we were able to raise more than $1,000 as Team Dragon Blood Balm, including donations from online orders and personal donations, and more than $20,000 as part of the full climbathon. We climbed hard, raised money, and did a marathon of ascents.

Thank you to everyone who participated!
