Give 233: Day 233

What is GOOD? (information quoted from the site)

“GOOD is the integrated media platform for people who want to live well and do good.”

You don’t need to say another word to get me to sign up. Waiting for me in my inbox from Good this week was a great way to give. One vote, one click and one of 6 organizations have the chance to win $50,000.

All the organizations are truly inspiring but it wasn’t hard for me to choose, I was instantly drawn to on one organization called The Surfrider Foundation. I wake up every morning to a stunning view of the ocean. My son and I are on the beach playing every chance we get. I’m was born a Pieces so I am drawn to the water naturally and I know how much it’s suffering these days.  If you watch the video on the Good site it is said so well by legendary surfer Laird Hamilton who works with the Surfrider Foundation ” The ocean like it’s own country, it should have it’s own flag and an army to protect it.”
