Disclaimer: I received a pair of Knockaround Sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find and write race reviews!
You may have already seen me around wearing Knockaround sunnies. They’re affordable, durable, come in several shapes, sizes, and fun colors, and look AMAZING! You can actually see my first Knockaround review of the Fast Lanes here.
This time around, the BibRave and Knockaround partnership for product testing added a new twist – The Kindness Is Dope campaign! This awesome campaign encourages us to engage in acts of kindness, big or small. One way to do that is through their Kindness is Dope III limited edition release. The two-pack gets you a pair for yourself and a pair to share (with a friend, stranger, co-worker, neighbor, …). This sounded like such a fun way to engage with a brand I love as well as remind myself to spread a little kindness (to myself and others).
The limited edition purchase includes:
• BOTH Fast Lane & Mai Tai model pairs included with purchase
• Polarized lenses on both pairs
• Holographic hand-numbered edition card
• Be Kind microfiber protective pouch
• FDA approved impact resistant lenses with full UV400 protection
I decided to keep the Fast Lanes again for myself since their my favorite style. Throughout the past month I’ve tried to spread a little extra kindness – giving myself some extra self-care, buying folks coffee, taking care of my friend’s cats (honestly, I would do this anyway – they’re so cute), letting someone with only a few items to cut in front of me at the grocery store. I really try to be kind whenever possible, but I feel like this campaign has encouraged me to have some extra observational awareness and look out for more kindness opportunities. Sometimes we’re so stuck in our world that, while we’re not being unkind, we are being unaware.
It’s taken me a while to decide who to gift my other pair to because there’s so many folks who deserve them. I’ve finally settled on a friend who probably needs a reminder to get up from her desk and head outside for a sunny walk as much as I do. I hope she puts these on her desk (like I do) as a reminder to pop them on and head outside for a walk with her dogs every once in a while. Sometimes I even allow myself to take meetings on my headphones while on a walk – SHOCKING, I know!
If you haven’t already tried Knockaround Sunglasses, I highly recommend them for you and yours. High quality, affordable, and fun for the win!
