Move Over Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Madonna and Bono for JP Auclair

Posted By: Steve Bellamy on July 9, 2009 8:40 pm

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Madonna and Bono are now in good company with one of the worlds greatest skiers.

You might know him as one of the architechs of the freeskiing movement.  You might know him as one of the founders of the Salomon  1080 ski.  You might know him as a co-founder of Armada.  You definitely know him as one of the coolest, nicest, most talented guys in the world.  You might not know him to be as deep of a humanitarian as he is.

That is until you go to:  http://www.alpineinitiatives.org.  There I said it.  Click on another website and leave ours (please come back.)  Alpine Initiatives is an organization committed to bettering the world in the literal sense.  There first project is in Kenya where they are building a Community home that is to serve as a template for others throughout the region. 

The impact of HIV/AIDS in Africa has been staggering.  By next year, there will be 23MM orphaned children in Africa.  Orphanages can house a fraction of those kids.  JP and partners are doing what they can.

Please go to their site and watch the video of the building going up.  It is inspiring.

JP is the greatest.  These kids need our help and the cause is worthy.  Lets all help them out.

Thx
