Love Everyday

This year, whilst being involved in the Skate 4 Cancer skate across Australia tour, I met the very amazing Mike Mendes.

He really hardly ever sleeps, although when I first arrived to meet my new van mates, Mike was in fact asleep. It was a rare occassion indeed.

Love Everyday is a not for profit organisation which Mendes established two years ago.
‘Love Everyday’ aims to increase awareness about poverty and under privileged people in our communities

He does this through non-profit art workshops as well as educational talks & discussions for schools and youth groups.
All the money made through Love Everyday goes right to the people on the streets of the city that they are currently located for purchasing things like clothing, blankets & food.

“I can’t sleep so I draw, paint, tattoo and wander the planet instead. Love everyday ” Mike Mendes
