It’s called “Ten for 10” and is a sort-of ‘bonus’ for Slater earning his 10th ASP Title.
As for the donation, Slater said, “Ten $10,000 donations is really special. As a kid I could not have fathomed being able to give such a nice gift to charities I believe in and it was totally unexpected! Thank you again to Quik and the Quik Foundation, and I hope these special groups find this to be a big help in the holiday months.”
Slater chose organizations that are making positive changes in the world – from a bus program that brings inner city L.A. kids to the beach to hands-on environmental education in Hawaii’s public schools.
“We are excited to be working with The Champ on selecting caring organizations, all with good causes, that are more than deserving of $10K each in honor of Kelly’s 10th World Title,” said Ryan Ashton, Director of the Quiksilver Foundation. “All of his selections fall in line with the Quiksilver Foundation’s mission to support environmental, educational, health and humanitarian projects.”
Slater’s ten beneficiaries are: Mauli Ola Foundation, Best Friends Animal Society, Na Kalai Wa’a Moku O Hawaii, LA Surf Bus Foundation, Kokua Hawaii Foundation, Space Coast Early Intervention Center, Boys and Girls Club of San Clemente, Smile Train, Waves for Water and SurfAid.
