Ro∙sham∙bo baby, the leading brand for baby and children’s sunglasses, is proud to announce the formation of a new charitable partnership with Surfers Healing, a non-profit organization committed to aiding children on the autism spectrum by providing surfing lessons in a safe and comfortable environment.The partnership is a natural fit: The ro•sham•bo company name is derived from the rock, paper, scissors game most of us played as kids - and this game is actually proven to have a calming effect on kids with autism.
Pro surfer Israel Paskowitz founded Surfers Healing because his son, Isaiah. has autism, and when he struggled with meltdowns and sensory overload, riding the waves with his father calmed him like nothing else. The founders of ro∙sham∙bo baby grew up in the beach and surfing culture and love what Surfer's Healing is doing, so a percentage of all their sales sold in 2016 will go to supporting the inspiring work of Surfers Healing.
Surfers Healing has been at it for over fifteen years, and we hope we can be a very small part in helping them continue for another fifteen. Each year, Surfers Healings’ volunteer-staffed camps give over 4,500 children with autism and their families a fun, engaging day at the beach. Attending a Surfers Healing camp positively impacts children with autism, instilling confidence and calm. It also can have a profound impact on the parents. Autism parents are always told what their children cannot do, but at Surfers Healing, it’s all about what their kids can do.
