Let My People Go Surfing Book Program
After reading, "Let My People Go Surfing" by Yvon Chouinard, my only disappointment was that I hadn't discovered it sooner. Patagonia is proof that creating, running, or working for a business doesn't always have to be about just the bottom line. With the right values, companies can do good and make money. It's this line of thinking that I wish I had been exposed to earlier in my life. With this in mind, I started reaching out to students, teachers, and schools across the country to get this book into their hands.
Currently there are four different classes and over 100 students reading "Let My People Go Surfing" thanks to these efforts. My hope is to increase that number to 1,000 in 2018.
If you're a student, teacher, parent, educator, Patagonia employee, or Yvon Chouinard, himself, and you are interested in learning more or helping out, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
