Spreading Holiday Cheer: Peace On Earth

Cayman Islands

 

This morning’s post was all about Spreading Christmas Cheer: Goodwill to all.  In addition, I would like to raise awareness for some amazing environmental organizations both local and international.  In the words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Below is a list of some fantastic environmental organizations- my hope is to help raise awareness for them.  Consider making a donation to help them in their efforts in protecting the environment and wildlife.

The Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI)

Their aim:  “To provide oceanographic facilities that support key research into coral reef stress and to conduct research at a remote site, largely unaffected by local human and development impacts.”

Conservation International

This amazing organization has created a wonderful campaign bringing much needed awareness for protecting the environment.  Their campaign “Nature Is Speaking” is making a positive impact on a global scale.  Below are two of their brilliant campaign videos.  Visit their website to see the complete series.

The Ian Somerhalder Foundation 

Their mission: “The IS FOUNDATION aims to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.”

Fin Free 

About Fin Free: “Fin Free is a global campaign addressing a very real issue: the mass slaughter of sharks to supply a growing consumer demand for shark fin.  We believe that by enabling youth, communities and businesses to take action against shark finning, we can work to protect the health of the oceans and ensure a more sustainable, livable planet.”

 

Lets work together to make the world a better place.

with love, xo
