BENEFITING: Surfing With Smiles Inc
Please visit our new Crowdrise campaign at: https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/surfing-with-smiles/surfingwithsmilesnh
Surfing with Smiles gives those with special needs and abilities the chance to learn how to surf – for free! For the past 15 events SWS, with help from Cinnamon Rainbows, has generated a positive & fun environment for our surfers, volunteers, and spectators. We have helped more than 100 children and adults learn how to surf – whether that's riding the wave in on their feet, butt or stomach – it's all surfing to us! We have seen both our surfers and our selfless volunteers become more confident & positive, and create lasting friendships through these events.
We have learned so much from each event, and can not wait to make this year even bigger and better!
Thinking back to our 1st summer, it's amazing to see how far we've come; how much we've grown; how many we've helped, made memories with, and created friendships with. It's crazy to think Surfing with Smiles started as an idea when we were teenagers, and has evolved to an event with over 150 people in attendance!
Every year we try to do the best that we can with money from our own pockets, but unfortunately we can't help more people, make the events more fun, and keep the events cost-free without additional funding.
That's where we need your help.
We want to be able to provide more beach games, make the events safer, give the volunteers and surfers water & snacks, be able to give out t-shirts and balloons, and overall enhance and grow the events. We are also always looking for advice and suggestions on things we can add, change or improve at SWS, so let us know if there is ANYTHING at all you can think of :)
Our EIN is #47-4327153, and donations are tax deductible!
We cannot thank you enough for your help!! See you in the water :)
