“The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation in South Bay, LA, for instance, has had an Ocean Therapy program for over 15 years now. This very program has helped both vets suffering from PTSD and at-risk youth from local shelter facilities. Mostly, through hopping up on a board and learning to ride waves.”

How Surfing Can Help

Is there anything a good day of surfing can’t cure? Here’s a list of helpful organizations.

When I was young, my dad had one of those classic, working man’s Toyota Tacoma carpenter trucks — long-bed brimming with tools, cords, hoses, generators, compressors, discarded Diet Mountain Dew cans and various ladders lodged precariously upon custom welded pipe racks.

Valentine’s and Random Acts of Kindness Day

Valentine’s and Random Acts of Kindness Day

Random Acts of Kindness Day
February 17th

Random Acts of Kindness Day is celebrated on February 17th. It’s a day when everyone has the opportunity to do something nice for a complete stranger, a family member, a friend or a coworker. This can be as simple as paying for the coffee of the person in line behind you, paying someone’s meter or just by saying “Good Morning with a smile”.

The holiday originated in New Zealand as a day celebrated on September 1st, but has since become an international holiday in February. It is also a part of Random Acts of Kindness week—started by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.

Several studies have shown that kindness is indeed contagious. When a person does an act of kindness for another person, it makes the person receiving it more likely to do an act of kindness for someone else.
