CAST YOUR VOTE! Chase Bank is sponsoring the American Giving Awards and one of the charities on the list is Surfer’s Healing. Based in San Juan Capistrano and founded by a couple with an autistic son, Surfer’s Healing’s mission is to provide autistic individuals with an opportunity to connect with the ocean through surfing.
I’ve mentioned how much I love the ocean in previous posts and how well my boys did with their visit back home to Maui.
The idea that autistic individuals find the ocean therapeutic is one that I support and there are many cool stories about this. There was a great documentary sponsored by Patagonia called “Come Hell or High Water” that talks about the evolution of bodysurfing, it’s raw and deep connection with the ocean and nature, and stories of autistic kids and their connection to the water. Another individual I’ve mentioned before is Clay Marzo, professional surfer who has asbergers.
Anyway, PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS GREAT CHARITY! Let’s show our support and . . . .ALOHA FRIDAY! 🙂
