There are so many things we may take for granted – like going to the beach, playing in the surf, and feeling the sand between our toes.
For these foster kids and orphans who had never been to the beach before last month, just seeing the ocean for the first time became a truly emotional experience.
Arizona law makes it difficult to take foster kids out of state; but aiming to inspire disadvantaged teens, two organizations assumed liability for the trip so the youngsters could spend the weekend at La Jolla Shores in San Diego, California.
The trip was facilitated by a partnership between Reef, an apparel company dedicated to cleansing the world’s beaches of pollution, and Urban Surf 4 Kids, an organization that uses water sports and beach trips to help foster kids heal.
The groups shot footage of the emotional trip and compiled it to make a video called “First Beach”.
