We believe that there are countless ways that people in need can benefit from the generosity of others. One of our family motto: Make More to Give More.
We also continued our contributions at “The Dump” in Vallarta, giving aid to the families there as a family. This place is literally a garbage dump, where whole families live and work in the city dump overlooking the resort of Puerto Vallarta, in Mexico. Families go there to rummage through trash to find things to sell, use or eat. Though it was difficult to see, it was heartwarming to see smiling faces receiving the sandwiches and backpacks with deep gratitude. Our 5 year old daughter, having never seen this depth of poverty before was timid, but proud of giving them a better Christmas.
Dave founded SurfAid, after a surfing trip in 1999 to the Mentawai Islands. As a physician he witnessed women and children dying from malaria, malnutrition and inadequate living standards, (preventable and treatable diseases).
Committed to becoming a part of the solution, we supported a 300 person village by funding a Malaria Prevention Program.
