There have been an incredible number of entries for the for the 1st EpicEveryDay Adventure Fund award and choosing a winner has been almost impossible.
People from all over the world submitted their “Epic” and every entry should win! The dreams people have shared are full of passion, life, adventure, love, courage, faith and all embody the EpicEveryDay mantra: “Experience Life. Do what you love, and do it often. Do something EpicEveryDay!”
In addition to selling shirts and wrist bands I’m working on ways to keep the Adventure Fund full so my dream of helping people live their “Epic” continues. Since January there are over 1,000 “super-power” EpicEveryDay neoprene wristbands on wrists around the world and a couple hundred shirts!!!! If you don’t have yours get it here. Wear Epic, Give Epic, Inspire Yourself and help me keep the Adventure Fund rockin!!
And the winner is…..Julie Kundert, Founder of the Ahimsa Festival. Here’s her “Epic”:
Hello, my name is Julie Kundert. Before I share my “Epic” it is important to know the backstory of what motivates my vision.
I am 43 years old and I have 4 children.. my husband committed suicide almost 10 years ago and we have had quite a journey sense. After time had passed I found myself engaged to whom I thought was a wonderful man. This person ended up being an incredibly dangerous and abusive partner. We were stuck for 6 long grueling years knowing that if I were to leave my children would lose their lives. It wasn’t until one day my girlfriend took me to a yoga class and my life changed completely.. long story short,we are now free after 2 years of hiding and this person thankfully has been sentenced to prison for 24 years.
My vision is to spread the awareness of world and domestic peace to all. I am putting together a festival called the Ahimsa Festival (ahimsa meaning non-violence non-harming) it is one of the 8 limbs of yoga. www.theahimsafestival.com. This website will explain much more of my vision. The festival has been put together with the intention of self transformation, forgiveness, healing, hope and inspiration through the beauty of yoga. The proceeds from the festival will go to the Valley CARES Family Justice Center. The center helps thousands of men women and children such as myself and family find safety and protection as well as counseling. This festival is my “Epic” journey to reach out and touch countless lives.
If I am awarded the first EpicEveryDay Adventure Fund I would use the money to directly inspire and help a small group of men, women and their children at the Valley CARES Family Justice Center. My vision is to get these men, women and their children to experience as many “Epic” experiences as possible with the $2,000. I would coordinate a variety of activities like paddle boarding, rappelling, hiking, sailboating, yoga, and art that would allow these abused women to inspire themselves and experience life.
I believe by being awarded the Adventure Fund I can also get additional donations from businesses that provide “Epic” experiences. This award would allow me to further my “Epic” of inspiring people through love, hope, passion, self transformation, and healing. So, in summary this money would help and inspire a group of women to live their “Epic” and they will share their “Epic” with others in the shelter who will see it’s possible to be inspired, happy, adventurous and be excited about life again. At the Ahimsa Fm,estival I would like to play a short video showing how living EpicEveryDay impacted and helped these women. I want to help spread the EpicEveryDay message through as many people as possible.
White light and love always… Julie Kundert
