Here at Ocean Minded, we believe in taking care of our oceans and keeping our beaches clean. Our Brand Ambassadors advocate and support this fundamental foundation, and Avery Aydelotte is no exception.
This past year has been filled with accomplishments for our 11-year-old Florida based surfer, including her recent philanthropic initiatives for team Ocean Minded in the SIMA Stokes Me Fundraising Challenge. With Avery’s help, Ocean Minded placed 5th in the contest, right behind Liquid Tribe (1st), Surfline (2nd), Shop-Eat-Surf.com (3rd), and Billabong (4th). A total of $3,656 was raised by team Ocean Minded and the funds were distributed to 10 SIMA Humanitarian Funds including Keep A Breast, Surfers Healing,Surf Aid, Stoked, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Life Rolls On, Waves for Water, Outdoor Outreach, Jimmy Miller Foundation and Best Day Foundation. With persistence and dedication, Avery also placed 2nd as an individual fundraiser in the Stokes Me challenge, raising $2,896 alone!
We’re very proud of this young lady and are excited to watch her grow not only as a surfer, but as a true ‘ocean minded’ ambassador. Thank you for your hard work Avery; we’re lucky to have you on our team. Photos: SnapJones Photography
