the season of giving
i have always been proud of how charitable kai is and have seen first-hand the many ways the company gives back. our founder, gaye straza, personifies the philosophy that giving from the heart is of utmost importance. this past year, kai decided to team up with the jimmy miller memorial foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to help people affected by mental illness experience the joy of surfing and the healing powers of the ocean.
with various JMMF events throughout the year, our kai team is honored to lend our support and attend. not only are JMMF events meaningful, but fun! recently, on a perfect southern california sunny sunday in october, a huge crowd gathered to raise funds at "The Jimmy" - an annual one-of-a-kind surf contest with a unique format that welcomes all levels of surfers: from first-timers to rippers.

i documented a bit of the event here and, during this season of giving thanks and giving back, i hope it captures the spirit of the day and this incredible foundation's dedication to keeping one of Jimmy Miller's most important dreams alive - helping others learn to love, heal and feel joy from the power of the ocean and the power of loving friends.
