If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re a bit like us. You live to get outside. Your soul is awake when you’re in nature and when you’re out there enjoying it. So what’s any of that have to do with a software company? Well, Quivers makes commerce software for some of the leading outdoor brands in the world. We also made this shirt.
Why? Because we love the outdoors, and we wanted to give back to an industry that has supported us. To do this, we partnered with some of our friends — a local non-profit, SheJumps and local Utah skier and artist, Andrew Pollard. Andrew created this artwork specifically for this shirt, and you will not see it anywhere else. It is one of a kind.
Quivers began with the idea of getting retailers and brands working together to sell online. This idea of interconnectedness for mutual benefit is a theme that is present in the outdoor spaces that we love. Andrew may have said it best; everything we do in the outdoors is connected. The snow that we slide around on in the winter melts and becomes the rivers and lakes that we play on and enjoy in the summer. It’s essential to enjoy and protect these unique places and understand the balance and symbiosis that creates such amazing experiences.
We value and support getting more people involved in the outdoors, specifically underrepresented groups. With this in mind, we decided that all of the proceeds from these shirts are being donated to SheJumps, whose goal is to “..increase the participation of women and girls in outdoor activities. Partnering with nature, SheJumps creates safe, educational outdoor experiences for girls and women that nurture growth and transformation.
Know that your purchase of this shirt is going to a great cause. We recommend wearing it outdoors with the pride of knowing that by wearing that shirt, you’re directly contributing to getting more young women to participate in the activities that you enjoy so much.
From all of us, thank you sincerely for your purchase.
“We dream. We jump. We grow.
Our vision: To unearth the potential of all women and girls through outdoor play and connection to nature.
We exist to unearth potential through outdoor play with reverence to nature. We do that because we believe growth is in our nature, but fear of stereotypes, failure, rejection, labels, etc – those spoken over us, what we’ve said to ourselves, and what we’ve believed – limit our growth.
The way we’re going to do this is by inspiring people to jump beyond their limitations. Practically, we help women and girls take risks in the outdoors to enable them to break through fears and internal/external barriers in life so they can grow to their full potential.
Partnering with nature, we create safe, educational outdoor experiences for people that nurture growth, & transformation.”

Andrew grew up in the small town of Alta, UT. The mountain was his babysitter and shaped the person he is today. Now, he gives back to the mountain which raised him by coaching the Alta Snowbird Freeride Team. Andrew also travels the world and competes on the Freeride World Tour with his little sister Jacqueline.
When Andrew isn’t tearing up the mountain on skis and on top of a Freeride World Tour podium, he spends his time as a river guide during the summer. Art is a way for Andrew to unwind and balance some of the chaos during his highly competitive winter season, and we are honored to share his art with you.
