Default Old Helmet

I just got my 2020 helmet and am wondering what to do with the old one? It seems a shame to just throw it away.

Autocross Program might be interested in it as a loaner; they allow helmets dating back up to 10 years (versus 5 in DE), presuming the helmet is still in decent condition.

AER/Champcar/Lemons and folks who do endurance racing are always looking for used helmets for pit/fuel workers. I don't enjoy using my expensive lid for pit work.

Currently, I don't think many wants an old out of date helmet in covid times.

PCAP ax program has had a fleet of new recent date helmets courtesy of OF racing, but as mentioned, loaner helmets not offered due to Civic.

There's always craigslist/freestyle/Facebook marketplace.
