Paddle for Daisy in Bali
On September 1st, people all over the US and beyond gathered to participate in ‘Paddle for Daisy’. Surfers from all over came to show their support and help raise the funds needed by the Merrick family to continue Daisy’s treatment as she fights cancer for the third time in her young life.
We believe this act fully embodies ‘surfers giving back.’
Our friends in Bali held their own Paddle For Daisy event, and they documented the day. Here is the video of their event:[youtube width=”600″ height=”400″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAZEqYaflco[/youtube]
In a beautiful display of using your talents to uplift others, Singer/Songwriter Dominic Balli, has written a song for Daisy specifically.[youtube width=”450″ height=”344″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSQ1qmNxahE[/youtube]
If you didn’t get to paddle out, but want to give back to this amazing family and support them, check out Daisy’s blog and find ways to contribute!
Get creative! Use your talents to hold your own fundraiser, sell a painting, write a song. Be inspired and use what you what you have to give back, and let us know what happens!
