Skydive for Mona!

Tags : 

?????????????

Aaron is our fifth FlyingMonkey (MONOVoldador)! Want to know why he decided to skydive for Mona?

“I skydived for Mona because I’m an animal lover and fight for animal rights. I’ve always wanted to skydive and what better way to do so than by supporting a good cause and people that compensate the meanness and cruelty of others by doing some good in this world”

Marta Borràs, tandem skydiver part of the 2015 Flyingmonkeys team.

“My motivation for signing up for this event has been a combination of several dreams of mine. I have been wanting to skydive for a while now, but I didn’t want to do it by myself and no one wanted to jump with me. But then I saw this event and thought ‘perfect, that’s my only opportunity! I will finally be able to skydive and all at the same time I’ll do it for a good cause!’ 
I’ve loved animals since I was a kid, they’ve always held a special place in my heart! This love and empathy that I had and still have for them was so strong that 10 years ago I decided to become vegan, it was an important step for me and I truly felt like I needed to do it. I work with different associations and participate in events in order to raise money for animals and educate society on captivity in places such as : circuses, dolphinariums ..
