There’s Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and now Giving Tuesday. Start the giving season with us and help more students experience the Marine Science AfloatTM program in 2019 by supporting our scholarships fund. Pacific Marine Research is participating in Giving Tuesday on November 27th, 2018. Help us give back to Puget Sound by training and inspiring the next generation of Puget Sound Stewards.
On Facebook and Instagram you can follow #MyGivingStory, #GivingTuesday, #PugetSoundGives, #MarineScienceAfloat, and #MarineScienceAfund. Follow us on social media as we examine all the ways Puget Sound gives to us and why it is worth protecting. Post an #unselfie or share your #MyGivingStory of why you support Marine Science AfloatTM. Shared #unselfies and stories will be entered to win a T-shirt design of your choosing, designed by our multi-talented Executive Director/Plankton Guy.
PayPal and Facebook are coming together in the spirit of giving to match $7 million in donations! Your monetary donations can go farther by donating through Facebook on November 27, 2018 starting at 5:00 am PST until the matching funds run out. The match applies to fundraisers for nonprofit organizations, including birthday fundraisers and donate buttons. Donations up to $250k per nonprofit and $20k per donor are eligible to be matched.
Puget Sound is a special place we love, share, and love to share. The impact Marine Science AfloatTM has on students is palpable. The novelty, excitement, and inspiration of being out on the water and actually doing marine science is a special experience for students and we want ALL students to be able to participate. It is our sincere belief that a sense of connection to the environment is one of the best ways we can inspire people to protect and restore it.
There are many ways to give this season – donate, volunteer, share…simply help us spread the word. Let’s come together Tuesday, November 27th, give back, and inspire and train the next generation of Puget Sound Stewards.
