How to Get a Head Start Shopping for Christmas

stockingTrying to find the perfect gift for a young man or leader in Scouting can be difficult – sometimes almost impossible. But what does every Cub or Boy Scout need – a FLASHLIGHT!

Don’t think so? Here’s a challenge for you: Walk around your house and find all the flashlights that you own and try to turn them on. If you are like me and many others you have 10-12 flashlights around your home and only four actually work. I actually purchased one that you shake to power but I can never shake it enough to get a powerful light and it only lasts for a couple of minutes.

It is surprising how often we need a flashlight that always work. We need it at our business when the power goes out and offices and bathrooms are in complete darkness. We need it in cars, cabin, boats, nightstand, 72 hour kits, sheds, dorm rooms, etc.

This Christmas give your Scout, leader or family a flashlight that is powered by the sun, creating a bright LED light that lasts for 6 hours. It also has a lithium battery for backup, is durable, waterproof, can be powered by artificial light and if you drop it, always rolls with the cells facing up to charge. Plus, it is neon yellow so you can find it anywhere.

Hybrid Light has created an amazing product.

It can be used as a night light and will shine for eight hours charged during the night. The bulb lasts for 10 years. Just imagine the savings if you no longer have to buy batteries and the flashlight turns on when you need it to.

And not only will you have a great gift for your Cub or Boy Scout, family or friends but you will also be supporting the Utah National Parks Council to provide programs for your Cub or Boy Scout. Hybrid Light is sold at hundreds of retailers, but is partnering with the Utah National Parks Council and giving $10 to the Council for each flashlight sold to support programs, or choose between the below packages and HybridLight will give $50 towards Utah Scouts for every $150 order placed.

Choose between two packages.

  1. Buy 6 HybridLights for $150 and get 2 free
  2. Buy 6 HybridLight for $150 and get 1 free expandable lantern with micro and USB for charging devices.

You can also buy HybridLights separately. Many buy 10 at a time just for home uses and another 10 for the perfect gift for a Scout, any adult Scouter and family and friends.

Get a head start on your Christmas shopping and ensure that your Scout always has a working flashlight on his camping trip. Contact the Utah National Parks Council, Council Services, to purchase at 801-437-6222.
