  • Ellie is an 88 year old superwoman. She started skiing when she was 33 years old and at the age of 82 had to give it up because of too many injuries. Ever since, her dream has been to get back on the slopes one last time. Luckily, our friends at Wish of a Lifetime heard Ellie's story and decided they'd help her achieve that goal. We were so lucky to have taken part in this adventure and want to thank our friends at Wish of a Lifetime a million times for inviting us along on this journey.

    Please please please go check out the incredible work they do to help elders live out their last wishes and get out of isolation:

    If you wanna become involved with Wish of a Lifetime right now, here's what you can do LITERALLY tomorrow:

    Tomorrow, February 14th, Wish of a lifetime's 5th annual CupidCrew movement will impact 20 thousand lives worldwide. CupidCrew is a movement that delivers thousands of roses to our elders around the world on Valentine’s Day.

    I've watched loads of Yes Theory videos but this was by far the best. Giving Ellie that time back on the piste was amazing. The joy in her face..... excellent!

    so i just rewatched this video for the first time since it came out and i know you're probably not looking at the comments of it anymore but i thought i'd give it a shot anyways. my maternal grandpa was a paratrooper in the idf during his service and loved it so much he made it his job for the next 30 years. as i kid i dreamt of going sky-diving for the first time with him by my side and when i was around 10 he promised me he would go with me when i turned 18. it's been over a year since my 18th birthday and i haven't gone ski-diving yet- my grandpa suffered a knee injury years ago that prevents him from sky-diving. i don't know if there's a way he can sky-dive with his knee but if there is i know that it would make him insanely happy, he always talks about his time in the paratroopers and how much he loved the rush of sky-diving and how it made him see everything around him. i hope that he will one day get to experience it again and maybe ill even be there to experience it with him.
