CHANGE4GOOD

Change4Good is a dream I have been cooking for some years. It all began by thinking what was the most incredible stunt I could pull off any what would I say when people asked my ‘Why did you do that’? I feel we all need a purpose and I am involved in a sport that calls a lot of attention, so why not use what I do to inspire people to change our world?

The idea behind Change4Good is to create an online movement that will inspire people to transform dates that have been scarred by tragedy into days of joy and transformation.

In the past decade we’ve experienced horrible events like April 7th 2011 when the tsunami hit the east coast of Oshika in Japan and July 22nd 2011 when a ‘lone wolf’ terrorist attack claimed the lives of 77 people in Norway. These are only two examples of dates that have been engraved in our memories as days of sadness and I want to change that. I want to take the opportunity to use those dates to create a mass movement for good.

I would like everyone to pick a date that they feel is marked for something negative and on that day go out and film yourself doing something good! Then share those videos on the Change4Good Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/change4good.us) so we can track all the acts that are happening around the world. I wonder what dates will get the biggest hype, I know I have chosen mine... ;)


WHAT WILL I USE THE MONEY FOR?

This is a summary of how your contribution will be spent:

Flights to the country I will perform the stunt in for myself and a team of 3-5 people that will film and photograph the stunt
Visas to enter the country for everyone in the team
Helmet and HD cameras to document the act (3-5)
Accommodation for 10 days for the entire team
Food for the crew
Car rental
Gas/ Tolls for internal travel
Training jump to practice the movements I will have to perform to successfully complete my stunt
Construction of structure that will help simulate what I will do (to do used in my practice jump)
Fee for 3 cameramen to document the jump (including training)
Fee for 2 photographers to document the jump (including training)
Hire of filming and photography equipment
Editing of the content to create online Change4Good stunt video
Editing of content to produce a longer video that shows everything I did from start to finish

Highest Wing Suit Jump 37.265 Feet.

Q&As

fanfuel - How does it feel to fly?

Jhonny - Have you ever had a dream that you were flying? Like, really felt the air sustaining you, the vibration in your heart, that sense of liberty? That is exactly how flying feels, like a dream. Once you exit the ground or an airplane there is nothing else in your mind, just the immenseness of the sky.

fanfuel - How did you get into the sport?

Jhonny - I remember I saw skydiving on TV when I was a young kid and it was a spot about a group of skydivers doing a beautiful formation, the sun was setting, everything looked so magical and everyone looked so free. I remember that moment as the first time the sport caught my attention.
Sometime later I saw a special on this guy called Joe Kittinger who was breaking the world record for the highest altitude jump ever. He went up to 102,000ft on a ballon at it was pretty much pitch black all around him, it looked like he was jumping from space. This happened in 1960 so everything was so dodgy and he had a free fall of around five minutes, and couldn’t help thinking what it would feel like to fly, I new I was hooked. He instantly became my hero and became a major influence on me.

fanfuel - We all know that base jumping in illegal and highly dangerous, how do you prepare for something like that?

Jhonny - When I go on a base jump there is certain routine that I go through depending on the ‘style’ of the jump. If its a ‘bandido’ jump (highly illegal) I always wear black, I like to feel like I am in stealth mode and I like to be able to set my mind into alert mode. After reaching the exit point area, and I feel like the conditions are good, I am comfortable with what I have to do, I go to the edge. The edge is always an interesting spot, its where I draw the line between reality and the impossible. I thank the universe for giving me the opportunity to experience something so awesome, take a few deep breaths and I go have some fun.

fanfuel - You seem very emotionally connected with base jumping, why?

Jhonny - Base jumping is wonderful sport, with an amazing community of people. I am so lucky to be part of this sport that sometimes I feel privileged, so I have to thank who ever is ‘out there’ for guiding towards this sport. I only wish that more people could experience what I do because it’s really deep, pretty powerful and extremely invigorating. A second in the air is an eternity in life. It seems like everything freezes, then goes back to tranquil, and you land. After that all you can feel is this energy that is almost uncontainable and sometimes all you can do is shout a massive WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO! On top of that when you get to experience something amazing with someone else up there, then its just magical. You share a part of yourself with that person and it feels like you are bonded for life, its great.

fanfuel - What does your family, friends and close ones feel about your profession?

Jhonny - Its pretty funny actually because when I talk to my Dad that I am about to dangerous jump or a crazy stunt, he always says to me, “Remember that there is only one life”. I’m not sure if he wants to tell me not to do anything stupid because you only have one life or if he is telling me to go out there and kill it, because I only have one life. So I usually take it as ‘Go big, you only have one life son’, I’m pretty sure that is what he meant...
