A call for Random Internet Stoke!

I’ve been exploring a bit this long weekend and have come across some inspiring gems during my search. My challenge this week is for you to send us your inspiring, upbeat and positive video clips and stories. Let’s create community online that represents, nurtures and cultivates stoke and positivity.

Here are my picks for the week, enjoy.

I have just been reading an amazing book called “Let My People Go Surfing” by Yvon Chouinard and was inspired to visit the Patagonia website to have a look. Following Chris’ recent post on environmental preservation and the David Suzuki lecture he attended I thought this would be an appropriate site for anyone to explore. The whole site is awesome but specifically the Bend to Baja I think epitomizes a spirit of fun and adventure I believe needs to accompany any positive world movement…

Manalive! If you haven’t seen this clip yet then you are in for a rare treat. A POSITIVE NEWS STORY! What? Yes, believe it or not quality television still makes it on air. I swear that every time I watch this story my eyes well up.

Big props go out to Canadian, Craig Keilburger who just won the World Children’s prize. Basically, it’s like the Nobel Peace prize for work with kids. He and his Bro have been doing all sorts of great things with the Me to We, Free the Children and Leaders of Today projects. Check out the recent update and send him a congrats email.
I find it inspiring that people can actually make it out of tubes this deep….

And finally a blast from the past. I’m not sure what it has to do with kindness but it sure makes me laugh…
Have an inspiring week.

With stoke,

Erik.
