Ibex Outfits Roadmonkey Adventure Philanthropy Expeditions for 2011

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, VT - Ibex, manufacturer of technical merino wool apparel and accessories of the highest quality, is proud to support the adventure philanthropy work of Roadmonkey expeditions for 2011. Roadmonkey expedition leaders will be wearing Ibex's signature base- and top-layer merino wool outdoor apparel, made from 100-percent ZqueT New Zealand merino wool, on their upcoming expeditions to Peru and Tanzania in June.

Roadmonkey is a new way to travel that combines challenging adventure with hands-on philanthropy projects that are started and finished on each expedition. Led by former New York Times investigative reporter and Iraq correspondent, Paul von Zielbauer, Roadmonkey expeditions combine adventure travel with organized volunteer work. The company pairs with respected nonprofit organizations on adventure philanthropy expeditions to Vietnam, Patagonia, Nicaragua, Tanzania and Peru.

"Ibex outdoor clothing is the first thing I pack for all Roadmonkey adventure philanthropy expeditions," said Paul von Zielbauer, founder and CEO of Roadmonkey Adventure Philanthropy, Inc. "Whether we're hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro, building a playground in Vietnam or glacier trekking in Patagonia, gearing up with Ibex makes me and my team feel ready for whatever nature sends our way."

Ibex customers receive 10-percent off Roadmonkey Adventure Philanthropy expeditions. Space is still available for two upcoming Roadmonkey expeditions next month-Peru, which launches June 4, and the Tanzania expedition that starts on June 12.
