Jesse Brisendine has partnered with one of Santa Barbara’s newest non-profits:
The 1 Year 1000 Challenge was conceived after a series of personal tragedies left Jesse struggling through life. Determined to no longer let the past get the best of him he challenged himself to live this year to the fullest. Jesse decided to do 1000 things he has never done before over the course of 2011. These “things” have to be completely unique experiences. One of the tasks on the 1000 Challenge list is to organize an international event, a global trash pick-up day. Over 600 people from all around the world have already RSVP’d via Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/
World citizens have been asked to pledge only one hour of their time to go out and pick up trash in and around their local communities. Spending longer than a single hour is fantastic, however the goal of this event is to demonstrate what people are capable of accomplishing in a short amount of time.
H.E.E.A.L., hoping to open its doors in December of 2011, is thrilled to be partnered with Jesse Brisendine and the 1 Year 1000 Challenge in order to show how positive creative and physical activity can be as well as spread awareness about the simple ways to improve the community with minimal effort.
