Welcome back tribe!
So good to be back speaking with inspirational people again after a little break from podcasting. Big things have been happening in the background of Treading Lightly, the main one being the opening of our new headquarters or the TLHub as it's been affectionately nicknamed. A place where like-minded individuals can collaborate, brainstorm new ideas, and initiate plans to really make a difference in what even project is going down! Big thanks to all those who contributed to making the Hub happen!
Today's guest is someone who was on top of the list when we were brainstorming the podcast so it's a privilege to finally have him on. Kurt co-owns AKWA surf here in Milton and is part of the board riders club. He's been involved with many charitable events in our town and came on today to spread awareness of the latest charity event.
SurfAid's mission is to improve the health, wellbeing, and resilience of families living in isolated regions connected to us through surfing. As surfers, we get to go and surf perfect waves that may be situated in remote areas of Indonesia and other countries. Most locals don't see the tourist revenues that should be going back into those very communities.

In Indonesia, a mother dies in childbirth every three hours and 20 babies die every hour. Half of these babies are less than one month old. In remote areas, these figures are worse.

All money raised goes to Surfaid https://surfaid.org/

There's a total of $12,000 worth of prizes - including a 10-Day Mentawai Surf Trip valued at $4,300 so get involved!
The Milton Mollymook Ulladulla SurfAid Team Raffle will be drawn on Sunday, 28 March 2021 at 4:00 PM so you need to get in quick if you'd like to contribute.
