There's something especially cool going on in the trucking community right now. TravelCenters, BlueTiger & St. Christopher Truckers Fund have joined forces to raise money for truckers in need.
And they have already surpassed $80,000 in donations!
How It Works
$10 of every Blue Tiger Blue Elite Headset sold will be donated to St. Christopher's Fund. The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF) is a 501(c)(3), truck driver charity that helps drivers whose medical problems have led to financial hardship. The SCF is also working to provide programs that will benefit professional drivers and the trucking industry.
TravelCenters (TA & Petro), a longtime supporter of SCF will donate $5 from the sale of each headset to the charity, and Blue Tiger USA will contribute an additional $5. Combined donations from the Blue Tiger Elite Blue headset campaign are have already surpassed $80,000!

"We are very happy at Blue Tiger to see over $80,000 raised to help truckers and their families in need. We developed this headset after seeing how supportive drivers have been over the years to help a fellow trucker. Using our Elite headset series that drivers already love, we partnered with a great cause in the St. Christopher Trucking & Relief Fund. The idea came about after seeing the amazing support from drivers at TA's and Petro's with the "Band Together Wrist Bands" sold at the counters (an SCF fund initiative). Building on that momentum, we created the new Blue Elite. Having proceeds of every unit sold go toward the fund seemed like the right thing to do to support truckers across the nation!” said Fieras Saah, President of Blue Tiger.
Donna Kennedy, Executive Director of SCF, shared, “I am thrilled about this campaign from TravelCenters and Blue Tiger. It’s amazing the initiative both companies took to develop the Elite Blue headset and entire campaign to benefit our organization and professional drivers. And, drivers are going to love purchasing this as a way to help their fellow drivers.”
We are excited and pleased to partner with Blue Tiger USA for this wonderful cause,” said Rodney Bresnahan, Senior Vice President of Stores at TravelCenters. “We know that every dollar donated goes toward helping a driver and their family in need and we are always honored and happy to continue to support an organization where prayers are answered every day.”
