Without any new arriving tourists, we have been wakeboarding a lot with our staff, locals and residents. It's been fun to bond, and see old friends again, which we lost track off during the busier tourism times.
we organised an open Wakepark Day, free for all locals and residents.
we organise another project, called "Food and Wake" for Siargao Kids.
Last Saturday, we did our first try-out event and invited all kids from the local village Consuelo. More than 40 kids showed up and spent the afternoon laughing, swimming, wakeboarding and having a nice meal!
Since our opening 2 years ago, we have been wanting to start a community activity where the people of Siargao can benefit the wakepark and experience our way of riding.
These uncertain times calls for opportunity!
We are inviting all the kids of the surrounding villages to come to the wakepark and have a delicious meal while learning how to wakeboard!
To make this happen, we need your help!
We are now accepting donations.
For 2000php (40USD or 35EUR), you can help us accommodate 10 kids every hour in our "Wake and Food Program". The more funds we raise, the more kids will be given a chance to enjoy this experience.
The wakepark activity expense, is brought to the bare minimum, enough to pay for the electricity, maintenance and staff. We want to keep open and give everyone on the island the opportunity to ride.
You can be part of giving these kids an amazing experience in learning something new, with a full belly, going home happy and ready to face whatever is coming next.
Any organisation who wants to help to get the kids together, please contact us if you want to collaborate!
You will be part of our Fundraiser-event as a sponsor and presented on the Wall of Fame. As a business opportunity, you can send us goodies, or anything else that makes them happy. These kids will always remember who gave them a smile that day!
