Founder Robert McDowell, a former 3rd generation Oil Industry (Exxon...yes...Exxon) employee, was also founder of a non-profit that supported children of fallen US troops. The organization sent Christmas Gift Cards to the children and sent many of the kids on 'Christmas in July' Disney Cruises.
Working with families of the fallen and a desire to help wean the US off of Middle East oil is what fueled McDowell to launch EVtires.com as well as other EV related companies. The fewer barrels of oil we import from over there the more our military men and women can spend time with their families at home.
McDowell also co-produced a CD featuring children of fallen troops and he and the CD were featured on The NBC Today Show. The CD made #8 on billboard charts. McDowell has met with the POTUS (GWB), two Secretaries of Defense, numerous Hollywood Celebs (ie. Will Smith, Gary Sinese) and Sports Stars (ie. Tom Brady, Larry Izzo) in support of the children.
