A Good Cause...

Not everything is about paddling. Sometimes we need a little reality check when we get too caught up in what we think is important. Who's winning what race, who's surfing who's wave. It doesn't really mean squat in the big picture. I had the honor of spending a few hours today with some great kids at the Camp Phoenix Burn Camp on Samish Island. These kids come from all over the country to spend a week with kids who have the same problem... disfiguring burns. This is a place where they can just be kids and not worry about getting teased or stared at. It was truly humbling and a great experience for me and my fellow Bellingham firefighters.

If you are ever looking for a very worthwhile cause to donate to, this is a good one...
