If you’ve ever wondered about the easiest way to get that case on and off, here is a handy info-graphic instruction guide just for you. Because sometimes our hands just need a little extra help for those not-quite-so-intuitive tasks, like adding extra protection and power for your iPhone.

And here’s a larger version plus a video!

Cash and Rocket Tour Day 1-4 – Barcelona, Cannes, Florence, to Rome

Rome – Day 4 Video

UPDATE Day Four:  On the final day of the fundraising tour, Cash and Rocket rolled into Rome with plenty of visual fanfare. With the Coliseum as a backdrop, the crew came to a stop at the luxurious Hotel de Russi and displayed the cars for the final time.

With over $160k raised on the Crowdrise.com/CashandRocket and preparations taking place for the gala auction, the event brought together a passionate group of women for a revolutionary fundraising trip of a lifetime. The auction, conducted by Italian actress & singer Milly Carlucci, was a packed house of powerful and enthusiastic men and women from throughout Europe and the group was treated to an appearance by Darius Campbell who had ladies like Jodie Kidd, Jo and Leah Wood, Andrea Hulsgen , Selita Ebanks, and Patricia Arquette on their feet in the front row.Driving

With the OutRide camera cases in their cars and juice packs charging their phones, the ladies were able to capture the action of each day and we’ve put them all together for you to check out right here. Look for a wrap up of the parties and events coming soon and again…don’t forget to donate! ***

Day 3 Cash and RocketUPDATE Day Three: The winding and sometimes rainy road from Cannes, France to Florence, Italy challenged the ladies  of Cash and Rocket’s driving skills and determination today!

Help the tour meet it’s goals by donating at http://www.crowdrise.com/CashandRocket

This event has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life,” said Selita Ebanks, in mophie’s car 22 ”It’s definitely a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. What I’m most moved by is how inspired and beautiful each of the women on the tour are. We’re forming bonds on a deeper level, a level familiar to women around the world and it’s these great causes allowing us to come together. Today on the tour it’s become even more obvious that while this event may seem far removed from the women we are seeking to help, it’s the strength and tenacity I’m witnessing that strikes a chord with all women. It’s this type of event that revolutionizes fundraising as both the donor and the donee are transformed. It’s definitely a beautiful experience that I will never forget.

The Drive to Cannes

Cash and Rocket Video – Day 2

UPDATE Day Two: mophie kept the ladies of the tour charged up on their 6 hour drive to Cannes – watch the video. Donations are up to over $100,000 and the competition is getting heated! Please help teams 22 & 23 reach the goal!

Day One
: mophie hosted last nights’ Flamenco themed party kicking off the Cash and Rocket Tour. After picking up their tour gear, including the mophie juice pack helium to keep them charged up on the road, they drove over 360 miles from Barcelona to Cannes. Exhausted and ecstatic, the women took every opportunity to fundraise all evening and throughout the day. As the group prepared to board a boat for the evening’s festivities in Cannes we took a moment to catch up with the girls in the mophie cars including Patricia Arquette and Selita Ebanks. Check the beauty and talent for yourself at the C&R Day One video wrap up.

“It was an incredible first day,” said Patricia, “beautiful countryside with beautiful, powerful women at the wheel. Of course I understand the experience of driving a luxury car through Spain into France is seemingly in direct opposition to helping the small NGO’s doing critical work in Africa. The reality, however, is that this experience will help build a school, keep children from being abandoned and left at the mercy of unethical orphanages and that is the most beautiful thing one can do. I hope people watching can support our dream and help make these things happen.”

mophie Team Results at X-Games 2013 Aspen

Mark McMorris takes 3rd in the Aspen X-Games 2013.

Mark McMorris takes 3rd at the 2013 X-Games in Aspen, CO.

The 2013 Aspen X-Games came to a close last weekend with the year’s top athletes competing to take home the gold. Nineteen year old mophie snowboarder, Mark McMorris, stole the show in the Slopestyle event, dominating the finals to win before he even dropped in for his third run.

With difficult conditions looming for the rest of the field, McMorris locked in and threw down a score of 98 out of a possible 100 on the third run. He went on to compete in the Big Air event which ended in a tie with his best friend and fellow competitor, Torstein Horgmo. McMorris ended up finishing 2nd.

Other mophie notables at X-Games in Super Pipe were Mammoth’s Greg Bretz who finished 5th and Ohio’s Louie Vito who finished 6th.

We couldn’t be more proud of our athlete’s performances!

9th Annual Louie Vito Rail Jam for Charity

mophie rider Louie Vito hosted his 9th annual Rail Jam to give back to his hometown community of Ohio. His for-charity snowboarding event provides meals, supplies and money for families in need after the Holidays.

“I’m really stoked,” Louie Vito said. “It’s a great setup and we’ve had a lot of donations and it’s dumping snow on us. It couldn’t be any better. It’s the complete opposite of the weather last year when it was raining. It was successful last year, but snow makes it a lot more fun.” The entry fee for the event is one non-perishable food item or a ten dollar donation, which directly goes to helping the families who need it most.

Glad to see Vito is sticking to his roots. Rock on guy.
