Back to the Community: June Partnerships with Surfers Healing!
Welcome to June, Bomber fam! It's officially the full start of summer, and we're delighted to welcome our June charity partner, Surfers Healing. This month, you'll find us rockin' our Bomber best at events all over California (and maybe a few on the East Coast this fall!). We hope to see you at one of our sponsored events, where you can make a difference with your dollar!
As always, one of the best ways to get involved with Bomber's charity partnerships is to shop your Bomber favorites! A portion of our June proceeds will go directly to our June charity partner, so stock up on new arrivals like our MAGNUMs while supplies last!
What is Surfers Healing?
Surfers Healing is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit dedicated to the healing power of the water. The team introduces children with autism to tandem surfing, allowing for new connections and exciting experiences through volunteer-staffed camps. The best part? The events are designed with the whole family in mind, giving parents a chance to connect with their kids in a brand new way!
Each year, more than 4,500 kids and their families take part in Surfers Healing adventure camps, all made possible through a massive network of volunteers and online supporters. With support from people like the Bomber community, Surfers Healing has expanded to serve families in surfing communities in the US, New Zealand, and Mexico.
A major challenge for kids with autism is something called "sensory overload", when the simplest senses (like touch, smell, and especially sound) can be too overwhelming. Getting on a surfboard addresses this challenge through feelings of weightlessness and the rhythm of the ocean. Have you ever felt that "blissed out" feeling just bobbing in the waves and watching the day go by? This is the experience that Surfers Healing hopes to pass along to children and their families, giving everyone the chance for a fun-filled family day at the beach.
"Our biggest challenge? Getting kids to come out of the water!" the founders say. "Once they ride with us, they don't want to stop."
Catch Bomber Eyewear at Surfers Healing's "One Perfect Day" event on June 29th! We'll be joining the party at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, California to spread the word about autism awareness and the power of surfing as a healing tool. To get involved, check out Surfers Healing's volunteer directory -- they're always looking for talented surf instructors who want to give back to their communities!
