Learn about Flow397 and a Giveaway!


If you’ve been a follower of Adventure Tykes for a while you know we are big supporters of the National Parks and value what they have to offer. J-Man has been to 15 National Parks and a handful of National Monuments and he’s only 5. So yeah, we tend to visit them a lot. This is why I am so excited to partner with Flow397 and not only share their Live. Give. Be Fulfilled mission, but to host a giveaway for some awesome shirts.

Flow397 was created in 2012 with a mission of being socially responsible to our National Parks by helping to provide sustained preservation and support, as well as, inspiring others to find the joy in living. Flow397 is also passionate about encouraging younger generations to engage in outdoor activities, as well as, educating them on the importance of National Parks.

“Our National Parks are woven into the fabric of our organization and have become the bedrock of Flow397’s charge to transact business under the guidelines of social responsibility. Business is the most powerful man-made force on the planet. It should not only create value for its shareholders, but for the greater good of society as well. Despite recognition as “America’s Best Idea”, the National Parks face a continuous siege of threats and challenges that extend beyond the non-profit sector and our government’s capacity. For this reason, Flow397 is committed to donating $3.97 for each item sold to charities that support our National Parks. “

Their Definition — Flow is the joy in living. Find it.

Finding Flow

“Have you ever experienced moments of absolute harmony where mind molds into body and actions are both timeless and exhilarating? Maybe you climbed the highest mountain…ran a marathon…surfed the biggest Waikiki wave…performed a new song on stage…painted a masterpiece…shared a special moment with your friends and family…or maybe you simply took your dogs to the park?

Moments of flow or “flow activities” provide the gateway to optimal fulfillment, which are wonderfully unique to each individual who recognizes life in this context. For many, the joy of living lays in finding these moments. We encourage you to chase these moments as they ultimately define your passions and who you are.”

Now you can understand why I’m partnering with Flow397 and sharing their story along with their great products.

We share the same mission.

Join me and Flow397 in supporting our National Parks and promoting them to your family and friends. Our National Parks can use all the support they can get.

J-Man and I had the opportunity to try out The Bear shirt and I have to say, it is super comfortable. It’s a tri blend, 50% Polyester, 25% Cotton and 25% Rayon, making it super soft and moisture wicking. It’s a great shirt for lounging around, running around town or playing in the outdoors.

  1. I love that we have so much beauty right here in our own country- and it’s protected! Want my family to see as many as possible!!

  2. Just watched an interesting documentary on happiness (it’s called Happy and is on Netflix). It talks about the idea of “flow” a lot, and essentially says that people who are in the flow on a regular basis are happier. Cool to see that concept referenced and described here ; )

  3. National Parks are places that balance the need for protection with the need for access. They preserve the natural wonders we have, but not to the extent that we can’t see it today.

  4. I love that they are protecting beautiful parts of our country!! I love our National Parks!

  5. I love that they remain mysterious and wild, despite the influx of visitors every year. They are truly a treasure for our country!

  6. Diane Richards says

    I love the raw, natural, untouched beauty of our National Parks. Living in Sacramento, I am not very far from a lot of great opportunities to get out into nature, even though my closest National Park is over 100 miles away. I am very blessed 🙂

  7. I love how accessible the National Parks are, how anyone can come share the beauty of the protected land. I have to agree with Ken Burns Documentary – The National Parks is America’s Best Idea.


  8. I love the beauty and the WOW factor of National Parks! Also love how they are protected so we can visit them for years and years!

  9. Jill Trevarthen says

    I love the simplicity of nature and that it is being preserved for future generations to enjoy.

  10. Teaching our daughter about nature, citizenship, being active, being healthy and conservation. At 5-1/2 yrs old, she already says “The parks are mine.”

  11. They really are the best thing about America. Open to everyone, many are free or at a low cost. I grew up by Assateague (technically there is both a State Park and National Park) which we had a Christmas Holiday of trying to make it down there that day or the day before to see the ponies and walk along the beach. In the Summer the beaches there except in certain areas really are fairly wide open without lots of people.

  12. Kristy C says

    I love that I can teach my son history in person, and we can enjoy the beautiful sights while learning.

  13. I love that National Parks protect and educate people about our natural resources. If we want our natural resources to be around for generations to come, we have to protect them and help everyone understand they can help as well.

  14. Jaclyn Reynolds says

    I love how clean they are and that it’s a chance to be in nature!

  15. Katherine says

    The National Park connects us with not only nature (our favorite place to be) but with the unique topography, geology and history of each state.
