The creative concept of Stand Up, Stand Out is based on the true story of how Grant Trebilco founded OneWave, a non-profit surf community that raises awareness for mental health. $5.00 from every book sold goes towards providing surf therapy programs for people experiencing mental health issues, provided by the Waves of Wellness Foundation. WOW is an Australian for-purpose mental health & surf therapy charity, changing lives through innovative mental health & wellness programs. Author Joel Pilgrim also happens to be the founder and executive director of said foundation.
