Tales From The Inbox - October 1, 2009

On Surfari: Shayne and Shannon McIntyre will be on the road again and filming another episode. Their email newsletter hit my inbox this week with this message:

"On Surfari's next stop is Liberia, West Africa and we need your help. Shannon and I are going to be working with two amazing organizations in Liberia: Trinity Dental, a dental clinic changing and sometimes even saving lives, and the StrongHeart House, an orphanage/entrepreneurial school dedicated to the traumatized youth.

On Surfari is going to be visiting both these non-profit organizations, bring some raised funds, and partake in some of their projects. And this is where you can be involved. Both of these organizations are small scale and trying their best to survive in this economic climate - their hearts and minds set firmly about helping the people of Liberia.

If you feel it in your heart to help you can visit these organizations by clicking on the links below. No amount donated is too small, and On Surfari is not receiving any portion of donated funds.

The best part: when the On Surfari Liberia episode airs- you can see where your money went- and see the lives you've helped change."

Trinity Dental's website can be found here and StrongHeart House can be found here.

How do we get this job? Traveling around the world surfing? No crowds to deal with. Every wave for yourself. Stunningly beautiful water. Ahhh... I'm going to miss the warm summer water and trunking it. Time to pull out the full suit. :(

I know, I am so jealous of the McIntyres! On top of having cool jobs they are really good people too. Great surf ambassadors.
