Bunok here. Some of you may know me. I'm the new PG pilot originally from NY who teaches yoga in Venice.
Earlier this year, documentary film, The Boy Who Flies, was released by Canadian PG pilot, Benjamiin Jordan. Jordan made a trip to Malawi to teach kids how to make kites, ended up teaching Malawi's first paragliding pilot to fly and documented the entire thing. Because of the film, this has led to the building of a school there called The School of Dreams, which will be half motivational school and half paragliding school. They are now touring the country showing the film and I will be hosting the Santa Monica screening this Friday. I know many of you are far but if you have the time and would like to participate, here is the info:
Friday, December 6th
1401 Ocean Avenue, Ste 110
Santa Monica 90401
$20 suggested donation All monies collected will go toward the building of the School of Dreams in Malawi.
(donations over $100 will receive a charitable donation tax receipt)
They are also doing gear raising so if you have any used gear that you would like to donate, please let me know, or if you are coming bring it along with you.
There is limited seating so please RSVP by responding here or emailing me at email@example.com.
I hope some of you can make it. We'll be going out after for drinks and food locally.
