After reading about her story and being greatly inspired by Erin, we immediately reached out to her and invited her on one of our ISLA lifeguard training trips. Her obligations in Southeast Asia prohibited her from coming along, but the initial contact sparked an on-going conversation in us being able to share more about ISLA, and us learning more about Erin and her journey.
Erin announced two weeks past that she was planning on giving out yet another $1000 to a non-profit organization that was nominated and received the most votes on her Go Erin Go social networks. We took charge by sharing the news to our friends and followers and were astounded by the results. We had an enormous display of support in the form of so many kind words and votes that Erin announced that ISLA would be granted the donation!
Though we wanted to share a special thanks to Erin for her donation to ISLA as well as the people who voted and supported the ISLA cause, ultimately we wanted to boast even more about the amazing and inspiring journey Erin is on. We wish her continued success in her philanthropic work, safe travels, and awesome experiences with the wonderful people she meets along the way.
