People who chose to make a positive difference in the world after experiencing a personal tragedy will forever inspire me. To turn something so horrible into something so beautiful is truly an act of selflessness.
After losing their parents in the tsunami in Sri Lanka, Rob and Paul Forkan created Orphans for Orphans an initiative which aids underprivileged children with education, medicine, and nutrition. Their clothing company Gandy‘s was created to honor their parents and the love for adventure and travel that they instilled in them. It helps support Orphans for Orphans by donating 10% of their profits to the children who’s lives were effected by the tsunami. 10 years after the tragedy, the Forkan’s completed their first children’s home in Sri Lanka. Their goal is to open homes for children all over the world.
Please take a moment to check out their site and to support such a wonderful cause.
