Throughout December and January I have been fundraising for the Vietnam Volunteer Network (VVN) whose work includes assisting kids at Trung Tâm Nuôi Dưỡng Bảo Trợ Trẻ Em Gò Vấp (Go Vap orphanage) in Vietnam as well as those affected by landmines and Agent Orange. Those who enter go in the draw for a give away prize of a MEOW skateboard prize with trucks and wheels donated from Extreme Skates (Australia) or a book I have a chapter in (overseas donations) - two things that simply symbolise the opportunities and love for life that I embrace in Australia and wish for everyone. With the assistance of my friend Kim, also an adoptee, over $625 was raised for the kids at Go Vap orphanage and related VVN projects. Thank you. Peace. Love. Respect.
Fundraiser closes 30 January. For more info:

Affirmative Action is a documentary by Kane Stewart from The Bayskate and Skatebiz about Bris. skateboarding. The film premiered at Tribal Theatre, and can now be seen online. Showing how skateboarding can be part of the city, not kept apart from it. Was great to be involved and supporting community voices, all ages, all backgrounds, supporting skateboarding.
