On December 3rd divers made #GivingTuesday a day to give back to the ocean. Thank You! There’s still time to make your tax deductible gift that will go twice as far. The great news is, our corporate partner PADI has chosen to continue matching your generosity up to $20,000 until December 31st.
As a special thankyou, you’ll receive a limited edition Project AWARE eco-ethical long sleeve t-shirt for your gift of $150, €125, £100.
We value your donations and work to ensure a high level of efficiency and impactful results in the field. I’m proud to report our global team has secured multiple positive charity ratings worldwide. Please rest assured your gift makes a profound difference. In 2013 together we’ve:
Delivered over 135,000 petition signatures to protect sharks and rays
Helped secure historic protections from the devastating effects of international trade for some of the world’s most vulnerable sharks and rays
Removed and reported 55 405 kg / 122 147 lbs trash from over 300 underwater dive sites
Witnessed the culmination of years of our long term work together pay off, as the EU implemented its shark finning ban
Clocked up an amazing 800km / 497 miles in the Finathon swimming to end finning
These victories would not have been possible without your support and generosity. To fuel more victories together in 2014 please consider a gift this holiday season. Happy holidays!
For the Ocean,
Executive Director, Project AWARE Foundation
PS Please donate today to double your gift for ocean protection. The first $20,000 in donations will be matched by PADI.
