Humanity and ocean

Become a Fundraiser

Enable balance between humanity and the ocean.



Who makes the greatest impact for ocean protection? You do!

When you become a fundraiser, you take the future of our ocean into your own hands. The opportunities to raise funds are vast. 

Here's a few fundraising ideas to get you started:
  • Make your birthday count for conservation and create a birthday fundraiser on Facebook.
  • Content creators on Twitch and YouTube are asking their audience to support our cause, through Tiltify, JustGiving or PayPal. 
  • Host virtual classes on Facebook Live, Zoom, HouseParty or even FaceTime for one-on-one sessions.
  • Host a Dive Against Debris Day and collect donations.
  • Test your endurance and rally a swim team, run or cycle to a special place and ask for sponsorship.
