H S B community outreach program delivers "Wax Buddy's" to Brazil's kids
Hawaii Surf Breaks community out reach program "Project Body Board" gives back to kids in need around the globe in many different ways. Kids of Pitangueiras Surf Team will receive the 'Luxury" Item to care for their boards.
"Kids in these regions don't have the means or luxury's as kids here in the states", We are blessed by the support that we receive from Surf company's and individual's so we pass it along" said Christina Rainwater.
"What people don't always get is together we can make a difference, We hope to bring a smile on the kids face and a sense of belonging and responsibility to care for their board , self and environment!
The inventor of the "Wax Buddy " is Ron Dimauro of endlesswave. He and his co workers are one of our supporters and I could not do this with out them. Ron's combs are made of Recycled material thus teaching that recycling's good for the environment! Win ,Win, for everyone . . .
I just recieved a message from my aunt letting us all know he's ok!
...Because communications are very difficult right now, he learned much of what he now knows about the earthquake and Tsunami from our 'chat'...
... Most roads are damaged and Tino wants the group to be heading North to pitch in, but they are stuck where they are about 400 miles south of the epicenter. They are still feeling after-shocks, but said that it's not too scary.
In true Tino fashion, he said that he was sleeping outside in a hammock when it happened and that he didn't notice as it probably rocked him into a deeper sleep! That's our son! We did say to each other that we couldn't imagine who we'd rather be with in this situation other than him. And it seems like he is tending quite thoughtfully to the kids and their communication w/ their families. They had to travel the overnight ferry last night and then drive two hours before they were significantly outside damage area w/ communication lines still up....
