The Story

FRIENDS OF TOM MOREY

Tom Morey's influence in surfing is unparalleled. He has turned more people on to the “stoke" of wave riding than anyone else in history. His contributions have been life changing for millions. Rather than seeking financial wealth, Tom’s mission for gain is the spread of stoke and unity. In his mind, the world can always be a better place. 

This selfless path has given Tom some internal fulfillment, but created financial hardship in these final years of his life. At a time when Tom should be nourished by, and set from his contributions, he is physically blind and scrambling in that darkness to make basic ends meet. 

Our team (Mike Stewart, Melinda Morey, Seamus McGoldrick (Shambles), and Saul Zaragoza) has set up this campaign to generate immediate financial assistance for Tom and his wife (and 24/7 caretaker) Marchia. We invite you to join us.

There has been a great outpouring of love and support for Tom Morey and his wife Marchia since the Friends of Tom Morey team launched their campaign on World Bodyboard Day last November 4th.

We have raised over $89,000 and it would be great to hit $90,000 before 2018 begins. 

And we will have more updates for you on Tom in the New Year.

Please share our YouCaring link and campaign video to keep the support and stoke spreading around the world. We are eternally grateful.

Seamus Mc Goldrick, Melinda Morey and Mike Stewart.

Today, we are well on the way to reaching our next fundraising goal for Tom Morey. It is great to see kind donations, support and comments come pouring in from around the world.

The Friends of Tom Morey campaign are depending on people power and the power of social media to change Tom and his wife Marchia's situation for the greater good.

So, we would like to ask you to share both the fundraiser link and our promo video for the fundraiser online.

As Tom well knows, we are stronger together.

Mahalo.

Whoo hoo. Today we reached the halfway mark of our second campaign goal of $100,000. The impact the 1000+ donors so far have made for Tom and Marchia Morey is huge, but we still need to keep the campaign going. Even if we reach our next goal of $100,000 that translates as just $10,000 per year for Tom and his wife for the next ten years.

Tom's inventions and influence has spread around the world and hopefully, as awareness of the Friends of Tom Morey campaign spreads, we will be able to reach many more milestones. 

Lots done and more to do, and none of this could have happened without all your love and support so keep the love and support flowing and please share this campaign among your friends, family and local surf community.

Mahalo.

The Friends of Tom Morey campaign team.
