Ocean Cleanup Charity Box
Update 25 December: the charity has ended and €4350 has been raised and donated. Thank you all!
Every year I pick one charity to give an end of the year donation (beside my regular monthly donations to charity). Last year I did a donation for Save the Children and ran also with Triple Spiral Audio a fundraising. This year I have picked the non profit organisation The Ocean Cleanup.
How does this work:
The Ocean Cleanup Charity Box costs €50,00 and you can add 3 products up to your liking to the box.
I donate €1500 myself to this organisation as I did also last year for Save The Children. All the money that comes from sales of this Ocean Cleanup Charity Box will be added to that amount and I hope we can contribute like this a good amount for this very important and great initiative.
This charity campaign runs till 24 December.
About The Ocean Cleanup
The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organisation from The Netherlands founded in 2012 by Boyan Slat. The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of their systems is estimated to clean up 50 % of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch every 5 years.
This is an amazing initiative that I am following already since its start. On September 8, 2018 they have deployed their first system into the Pacific and you can follow its progress here: https://www.theoceancleanup.com/system001/
