G-Land Could Use A Little Of Your Love Right Now
No surfers means no work for the locals, and that’s a problem.
What do you do when all the surfers stop coming?
Sadly, that’s a question surf outposts around Indo are having to reckon with right now. At G-Land, with the closure of the Alas Purwo National Park, there are no guests coming or going, no epic barrels being ridden or Bintangs on the beach.
To help the out-of-work folks that support their families, the Joyos Surf Camp has set up a GoFundMe campaign.
The staff are great friends to so many of us over so many years. They are a huge part of what makes the jungle so special. Many are struggling with the loss of income from camp closing,” writes Terima Kasih in the campaign’s description.” Most staff have family to support and the chance of increased medical bills to come. It’s time to pay forward their continued wellbeing toward years of good times with our jungle brothers and sisters ahead.”
The campaign is seeking to raise $10,000, and as of press time, were halfway there after a week. The funds raised with go towards providing camp workers a living wage for the next few months, as was as cover medical and educational expenses for their families.
And to make things interesting:
“All contributions over $100 will go into the draw for a six-night stay at Joyos G-land Camp.”
Scoring a week-long trip to G-Land for $100? Why wouldn’t you donate?
Plus, “any surplus funds raised will be proportionately added to the Bintang accounts of contributors.”
The dream of G-Land still lives, but the jungle may be a little thicker and there may be a few more tigers the next time folks are surfing there again.
