Special Surfers helps kids and young (and some mature) adults with Special Needs. Often these are people who, in their everyday lives struggle to feel like they fit, like the world has a place for them. When they come for an evening of fun at the beach, it’s all about them. There are no rules, no expectations, its all about having fun. That’s it. Many of their parents dream of watching their child excel at things average people take for granted. When they come to Special Surfers Night, they watch their children shine.
This is a local charity which I was exposed to through an amazing friend of mine, Tom Reynolds, who is a pediatric neurologist working at Maine Med here in Portland. Initially the conversation was about using my company, Hopsie (which is powering this page!) to help with the fundraiser, but after learning about the cause, I had to get involved deeper.
Any and all gifts are welcome, and Ill be sure to post some pictures of the next surf day to everyone that helps support me and Special Surfers through this page! MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL!
Hey Everyone! Its so cool to see how much support Ive already gotten, in just a few hours after i sent my email! Im going to raise my goal to $500 now, as I definitely think we can do it! These kids are going to have so much fun this summer using the new boards and equipment, and Ill be sure to send pictures form the event!
Love you all,
Its wild to say, but I just had to increase my goal amount AGAIN! You guys are amazing, I cant thank you enough, and the kids and families who will benefit from this Fundraiser will truly have their hearts touched. Keep up the momentum, together we can accomplish amazing things! Much love to everyone.
