Working with Surf For All allows me to interact with many other charities as we help them get their participants into the water. We are lucky to have this indoor surf facility at American Dream Mall that we can host winter surf outings.
This particular outing was with The FELIX Organization.. For those that don’t know, FELIX was founded by Darryl DMC McDaniels.. They provide inspiring opportunities and new experiences to enrich the lives of children who are growing up in the foster care system.
Also as a photographer it allows me to capture a unique “in the water” prospective of these children catching their first waves!
Here’s an excerpt from Kaitlin Wright / The FELIX Organization article on Surf For All’s Site…
We want to give a huge shout-out to Jeanine and all of the people who came out from Surf For All early that morning to give our kids a day that they’ll cherish forever. Also, we would love to give a huge shout-out to Dunkin’ for sponsoring this day by providing coffee for the staff and chaperones and delicious donuts for the kids who devoured about four donuts each after surfing for a few hours! Lastly, thank you so much to our partner agency, Seamen’s Society, for bringing such an incredible group of kids and to the foster parents and staff that got them to the bus bright and early on a weekend. Everyone created memories that will last a lifetime and we are grateful to everyone who made it happen!
