New York, NY (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
Oxygen Plus (O+), a leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of portable, recreational oxygen for wellness-minded people worldwide, today announced a partnership with FlipGive, a web-based fundraising platform that combines the convenience of online shopping with online fundraising. Over the past 6 years, FlipGive has helped individuals and corporations across North America raise over $20 million for grassroots and charitable causes.
Oxygen Plus’s flagship product, the O+ Elevate Pack, will elevate schools, sports groups and local communities across North America as FlipGive’s newest offering. Whether it’s a hockey player raising money for new sports equipment, or a debate team student raising funds for travel, FlipGive fundraisers will earn $10 for their cause every time their supporters purchase an O+ Elevate Pack. Supporters receive an eVoucher from FlipGive.com or FlipGive.ca, which they redeem from Oxygen Plus’s website (OxygenPlus.com or OxygenPlus.ca).
Designed for healthy, active individuals of all ages*, Oxygen Plus’s active ingredient is 95% pure recreational oxygen, which is four times the amount of oxygen found in unpolluted, everyday air. Christine Warren, Oxygen Plus Founder, explains, “Olympic and professional athletes train and perform with supplemental oxygen to improve performance and speed up their recovery time between workouts1. Our partnership with FlipGive is groundbreaking because it gives students and their families the same accessibility to oxygen that athletes have had for years.”
According to experts, sports science reveals that breathing supplemental oxygen helps to increase one’s energy levels, improve performance and reduce the buildup of lactic acid in the body. In addition to physical benefits, cognitive benefits of increasing oxygen intake include mental clarity and focus as well as improved reaction and recall time2.
The excitement in teaming up with Oxygen Plus is shared by FlipGive’s CEO, Steve Croth. "Now athletes across North America can enhance their performance on and off the field simultaneously. By purchasing Oxygen Plus products, athletes fund the sport they love."
