Hypersports of Sweden Makes HUGE Donation to Ronald McDonald House

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

The paintball players of Sweden have made a BIG difference this year, not just in the Scandinavian paintball scene, but in the lives of millions of children around the world.  This year, Hypersports donated over 11,500 Euro to help fund the construction of a fifth Ronald McDonald house in their home country.

“During 2012, we decided to do something a little extra special, something we think is really important.  We wanted to make a difference, for those who have it really hard” mentioned the Hypersports Team.  ”You, our customers who bought gear from us in 2012, have been involved in making something beautiful, something we are proud of now when this paintball season is coming to an end.”

What is a Ronald McDonald House?

Sometimes when a child gets sick, they have to go to a hospital far from their families.  Parents want to be with their child every second during such a difficult time, but when they are far away it makes it extremely difficult.  That’s where the Ronald McDonald houses come in.  They provide a place near big hospitals for parents to be with their unfortunate children.

The Hypersports team consistently runs promotions and sales where a percentage of the sale are used to raise money for this great cause every year.  ”Since this cause is close to our heart, we will continue to collect money and make a big donation in 2013.  We hope to be able to donate even more in 2013 so that more of these houses can be built!”

Dye Teams & Stores Helping Children Across the Globe

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Today we are proud to report on two extremely thoughtful stories sent to us from one of our newest Dye Sponsored teams in Ukraine, HULK, and one of our oldest South American retail outlets, Fast Ducks of Colombia.

First let’s travel to Ukraine, where HULK donated more than just a fashion show to a room full of underprivileged children in their region.  A big screen TV for the children to all share, gift bags for everyone, and the best present of all… an invitation to play paintball with HULK in the spring!  You’d think the TV was what would get the children excited, but according to HULK’s captain Yaroslav Yanushevich, the announcement of their upcoming paintball adventure got the kids all clapping their hands and jumping with excitement.

A few gifts and a paintball invitation was all it took to make this years holiday season extra special for a lucky few.  HULK put on this event out of their own pockets, but to them it was no sweat… they were happy to do it out of the kindness of their hearts.

Now we travel way South to Bogota, Colombia, where Fast Ducks Paintball put on a Toy Drive for some underprivileged kids in their area.  Dye’s own Billy Wing personally made the trip down to Colombia to hand deliver some toys for this great cause, and from all of the pictures they’ve sent us we can tell it was a major success!

Dye is extremely proud when individuals, teams, stores or anyone in the paintball industry takes it upon themselves to give hope to those who are less fortunate and to make their holidays a little brighter.

Velocity Paintball’s “Santas vs. Grinches” Big-Game a Major Success

Monday, December 17th, 2012

December 16th, 2012: Santa’s vs. Grinches Scenario Big-Game @ Velocity Paintball, Ramona CA

This past weekend, DYE made an appearance at one of Southern California’s oldest paintball parks and retail outlets, Velocity Paintball in Ramona, California.  The game type was fun, the turnout was excellent, and the DYE booth was poppin’ with players testing out the brand new DAM’s, DM13′s, and Reflexes that were on display, free of charge.

It’s amazing what a kid will do to win free DYE products.  Going into the event, DYE had a few of the 2013 i4 Goggles to give away but weren’t exactly sure how they wanted to award them to the loyal DYE fans at the event.  With a little help from Denise from Velocity, a stand on one foot/rub your belly/tap your head contest was born, and after nearly 30 minutes of intense tapping, spinning, jumping, and avoiding incoming grenades, a winner finally emerged.

Over 100 players from all over California joined in on the action, including some of Dye’s flagship players like Justin “LJ” Schwarz from the Los Angeles Ironmen and “Trucker Billy” Robertson from the Tactical Ironmen.

Overall the event was nothing but good times and smooth sailing.  The reefing was excellent, there was a friendly holiday vibe, and it seemed like everyone at Velocity Paintball Park went home with a big smile on their face.
