I am now in Gili Air, one of the island in Indonesia, close to Lombok where a big Earthquake did hit the place a few months ago (on the 5th of August).
After spending some weeks in Bali, something pulled me out of it to come to Gili Air. A great opportunity came up to me and I think there is a reason behind that.
I first came here and got welcome by every single inhabitant who saw me walking down the street.
I've been here for a few weeks now and got to know the locals, made friends with some of them, they are the happiest people I've seen so far, even if most of them, lost everything. Their house fully collapsed, they remain with nothing but their smile.
Going towards Christmas and the end of the year, I'd like to raise the awareness to our tribes, our families, our friends towards what happened in Indonesia.
One coffee in Australia can provide 25 bottles of water in a village.
A house cost $1100.
Imagine if each one of you, decide for just one day to give up to your favorite thing, either coffee, chai, cigarette, yoga class, chocolate barre and whatever you can think off. Just ONE DAY.
One day without this one thing you are attached too, or used to. Just ONE Thing, for ONE day of your entire life.
What is it really ?
Bringing here the opportunity not only to help a family, but also to allow us to reconnect as a big tribe again, helping each other.
On the 6th december this year,, a 5.5 Earthquake hit the island, the epicentre was nearby, we heard a big rumble & the Earth started to shake strongly, I have never felt a quake that big before. And it wasn't.
Fortunately not strong enough to destroy anything, but on this instant it made me realise that in a few seconds we can lose everything, including our own life.
All that I have ( and I don't have much here) for this instant had no matter if I lose it, as I was alive. and Grateful.
But I saw the terror on people's face, they got scared thinking it's happening again and a lot of local this day took a boat back to Lombok to spend the day with their families. The island was deserted...
We know the Earth is moving, shifting, and we know there are gonna be more events happening here or somewhere else.
I know we cannot help everyone and I am aware that we all have our own life to deal with, our own worries, thoughts, families and concerns.
But today I have decided to put actions into my thoughts, I tend to want to do thing and start them but never achieve it.
I want to achieve this project. I want to raise money and give it to the people I met here and need it to help their families rebuild a house where they can live again.

Much Love and Kindness to you all
