Support Kids Ocean Day for #GivingTuesday

Dear Ocean Defender,

This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, KIDS OCEAN DAY is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.

KIDS OCEAN DAY is a non-profit organization that is part of The Malibu Foundation for Environmental Education. Through school assemblies, lesson plans, beach clean-ups, and an aerial art project, KIDS OCEAN DAY specializes in outreach to schools and promoting awareness of coastal quality issues. This program excites and inspires teachers and children alike to care for the world they live in and to increase their appreciation for the beaches and oceans. Your generous contribution will help make these goals even more of a reality and will directly benefit the children of Los Angeles.

The kids are alerting the world about the need to help the ocean and protect it from the everyday trash and plastic litter that flow down the streets, killing marine life and polluting food resources.

KIDS OCEAN DAY IN HONG KING 2013

Hong Kong 2013

1000 Hong Kong kids, teachers, and volunteers call for shark conservation by forming a giant shark with a severed fin saying ‘Save Me’ in Chinese (救我). The children then re-attached the fin, dotted the eye, ‘rekindling its spirit,’ and brought the shark back to life as the message of the 2nd annual ‘Kids Ocean Day’ Hong Kong organized by Ocean Recovery Alliance (a Hong Kong and California registered NGO), Malibu Foundation, and Spectral Q from Los Angeles).

The image is based on original drawings from two Hong Kong schoolchildren, one depicting a shark asking for a ‘ban on shark fin soup,’ and the other with a severed fin which said ‘save me’ while building respect for an endangered species that sadly, is universally feared. Their drawings were converted to a large scale aerial art image on the beach by international artist John Quigley, with help from all of the children, but with the fins from children at the Confucian Tai Shing Primary School, and Renaissance College primary students.
