HUMANITARIAN/SURFER As a professional surfer for 13 years, Jon Rose led what he describes as, “A very self-indulgent lifestyle.” He traveled around the world with his board in tow, looking for the best, most beautiful waves to ride. But in these far-off, remote locations, Jon also witnessed extreme poverty, where access to clean drinking water was unavailable. These experiences inspired Jon to help people fulfill this basic human need, and he founded Waves For Water, an organization that brings water filters to locations in need of clean drinking water. Today, Waves For Water can be found helping communities in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Haiti, Brazil, Indonesia, and Africa. One out of six people in the world have no access to clean drinking water, but with the help of Waves For Water and participation from others, Jon believes this problem will someday be a thing of the past.
