2016 Top Philanthropic Effort: The Butterfly Effect

Song: “Ten Street” by Ultimate Painting

2016 marked the 10th anniversary of The Butterfly Effect. Since founder Tatiana Howard started the event, they've gotten thousands of women on the water in 18 countries. The Butterfly Effect is a non-competitive event that encourages women to get on the water. They provide clinics (yoga, stroke, etc.) and then go on a downwind run. No men, no pressure to compete. Howard is a ripping surfer, paddler and windsurfer from Maui.
