SURF RELIEF 2006
It may seem like every day there’s a new cause people are calling you to join. But that’s how the world works. Our world is not perfect and there are a lot of different issues we need to address. Sometimes an insignificant amount of money or a piece of clothing or a book can really make a difference in other people’s lives. Some of us have been more fortunate than others and that’s why it’s so important to get together and support the causes and charities where people work every day to help others. So, today we want to urge you to join a cause that hopefully, you can relate to as well. Join Surf Relief.
Surf Relief UK is an organization created to help Tsunami victims in Haiti in 2004. The surfing community raised hundreds of thousands of pounds in various donations. Since then Surf Relief UK have been working on various charity causes such as building community centers, building surfing schools, taking care of disabled children, etc.
Why Surf Relief is important?
What does come to your mind first when you hear someone say “a surfer”? A lot of people imagine a young, possibly reckless (and jobless) guy who says ‘dude’ all the time. Yes, if TV can teach anything it’s that we should not trust clichés. You may not believe how diverse the surfing community is. For example, here in UK the surfing community connect men and women, boys and girls from different backgrounds as young as 5 and as old as 57. However, there’s one thing that they all have in common. They all care deeply about our planet.
If you’ve never surfed yourself, surfing as an activity and surfers as a community may seem alien. But it’s not the case. Think about it for a bit. Earth, water, surfing, climate change, tsunamis (and every other natural disaster) are all connected. So, whether you are a surfer or not, you may be much closer to this community than you originally though.
As the holiday season is upon us, we want to urge you to do a good deed by turning to those in need. Give your support to Surf Relief. There are many ways you can do that. Tell your friends about Surf Relief UK, donate, join the community. If you want to know more, contact them and they will tell you about all the effortless ways you can become a part and help make this world a bit better.
