So, it's my Birthday ... I've never done this before but here's my birthday wish:
I know how generous my friends are and I know you would have bought me a gift if we were in the same country / city / town 😜 ... SO ... instead of buying me a gift, how about joining me in donating to @wavesforchange.
I've just donated $100 (aus) to this organisation which combines 3 of my passions - Surfing, South Africa and helping people.
I don't know anyone personally in this organisation but I've been following them for a while and they are having a significant impact in young people's lives. "W4C works in communities affected by violence, poverty and conflict, where mental health services are often stigmatized and under-resourced.
Working in partnership with local community members, we identify, train and resource mentors, who we work with to open programmes that service the youth of their own home communities."
Check out their website (link in my bio) and social media accounts for more info and it's easy to donate through their webpage.
I've always hoped that me being born would have a positive impact on humanity, it's a small contribution but I know it goes a long way ... you being born, you being alive means there is opportunity to make a positive impact on humanity.
Thanks for the birthday wishes and more importantly, thanks for your generosity.
