Fundraiser for VVN

Throughout December and January I was 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 entered went 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. 

UPDATE: Congratulations go to Matthew Rooke who is the winner of the MEOW skateboard, and David Nguyen who is the winner of the MISO FOR LIFE book, which includes a chapter by myself and other authors, including the late Annie Kim Pham, RIP (http://www.ameltingpotofthoughts.com/).

The fundraiser raised $850 over Christmas & New Year, & has been for VVN projects focused on the children in Vietnam who live with complications arising from Agent Orange related illnesses, disabilities & malformations & also survivors of the impact of land mines. 
Thank you to VVN director Kim Nguyen Browne for her collaboration with this fundraiser. The prizes simply symbolise the depth of having a love for life and valuing opportunities I wish, as someone from a Vietnamese orphanage, for everyone. Skate, write, whatever. Survive, give back,  live, love. Peace, respect, represent."

Fundraiser closes 30 January. For more info:

Supporting skateboarding in Brisbane

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.
