TYPE A founder Rick Porter served in the US Army as a medic in the 75th Ranger Regiment. During his enlistment, he provided medical aid to many wounded soldiers. Wanting to continue to help, he and his wife created TYPE A Gear, a company which donates $5 for every item purchased to a military charity. This program was later named "High5".
We hope that our vision will evolve into a nationwide effort to improve the quality of life for wounded service members and their families. You can make a difference with every purchase, while proudly proclaiming your "Type A" mindset. Please help us spread the word by sharing this "High5" with your friends and family.
Currently, the High5 program donates to Hope for the Warriors. The mission of Hope for the Warriors is to enhance the quality for life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. Hope for the Warriors is dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families. Type A is honored to be partnered with such a noble cause, united by our shared conviction of honor and sacrifice. High5 for Hope!
Thank you for your support!
