My Wish for World Ocean Day


2zqh83tI wish everyone would donate $10 to their favorite marine conservation organization. NGO’s rely on small donations, not large donations, to keep their organizations running on a daily basis (this comes from my wife who as worked years in nonprofit fund raising).  Your $10 combines with other Hamilton’s to grow into Benjamin’s, which hopefully form a community.

My donation dollar is with the Coral Reef Alliance.  As the World Ocean Day motto states, “one ocean, one climate, one future.”
