Surfers healing

  1. 1. Surfers HealingKirk Fagan<br />
  2. 2. Mission <br /><ul><li>To enrich the lives of people living with autism by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing.</li></li></ul><li>Our program is made to relinquish the fallacy that because a person has autism means they cannot accomplish anything. <br />We take children with autism and our specially trained teachers give them explicate guidance while the trainer is on the board with them.<br />Giving these children the satisfaction of accomplishment means the world to them and their families. <br />The program <br />
  3. 3. The people who will be surfing with them will be highly trained and often are pros who are very humbled by this experience.<br />Surfers Healing wants to provide a fun and eventful day at the beach for not only the child but the family as well. <br />The Program<br />
  4. 4. Here is a link to give a good idea of what Surfers Healing is all about.<br /><br />The Program <br />
  5. 5. The reason I decided to use this non profit is because I believe children with autism can be productive people in our society, and I believe this program displays that point perfectly.<br />Surfers Healing combines the love I have for surfing and the ocean with my beliefs I have about people with autism. <br />My own cousin suffers from high functioning autism so I know first hand the struggles an barriers that effect children with autism.<br />Personal Connection<br />
  6. 6. Shuttleworth Foundation <br />Shuttleworth Foundation<br /> They strive to help any organization, that has clear vision on how to bring change and make the world better.<br />They believe in individual who believe in the change they want to see.<br />Surfers Healing<br />They strive to make the world a better place by making a great day for children who haven’t seen very many.<br />Izzy Paskowitz exemplifies the type of person the Shuttleworth program promotes because of his use of critical thinking skills, that combine his love for his son and the ocean. <br />
  7. 7. Shuttleworth foundationcontinued <br />Shuttleworth foundation <br />The Shuttleworth foundation appreciates fresh and innovative ideas.<br />The reason Mark Shuttleworth started the foundation, was to push innovative and courageous ideas.<br />Surfers Healing<br /> The Paskowitz family saw a need and used deductive reasoning to piece together a program that would be fresh and helpful. <br />The program that Surfers Healing does is not only innovative but also very courageous, giving children with autism the chance to surf is something that has never been done before.<br />
  8. 8. Autism affects 1 out of 110 children <br />Autism is what doctors call a spectrum disorder, meaning that it does not effect everyone the same.<br />Autism effects children differently from severe cases, leaving the child with major learning disabilities to mild cases, where the person has normal learning abilities.<br /><br />The Need <br />
  9. 9. In the summer of 2011 there were 16 camps help for autistic children and there families.<br />These event ranged from California to Puerto Rico, Hawaii to the East Coast.<br />Output <br />
  10. 10. The benefits that children and there families receive from there day at camp is beyond belief. <br />As one woman’s said, it is like being with a family of people who understand there struggle’s<br />The family gets to see the child succeed at something they probably never thought they would.<br />We will be giving these children the satisfaction of accomplishments, and that means the world to them and their families. <br />We want to allot the gift of the ocean to the autistic community <br />Outcome <br />
  11. 11. Some of Surfers Healing funds goes to equipment like wetsuits, surfboards, tents, rash guards, life vests, food and drinks. <br />The rest of the funds go to insurance, beach permits, administration cost. <br />Input <br />
  12. 12. The camps Surfers Healing have are completely free and the only way we can fund them is with your help.<br />To aggrandize the amount of camps we can hold we must be helped with donations.<br />A $25 donation will pay for one third of a child’s day.<br />Any donation are greatly appreciated <br /><br />How you can help <br />
