Thank you for your support on Giving Tuesday!
Every year on Giving Tuesday, people are looking for ways to give back and support the causes that are close to their hearts. We are very excited you selected Coastal Connections!
How Your Donation is Helping Coastal Connections
Within our first year, we have successfully grown the locally famous Sebastian Lionfish Fest, added a new Adopt A Sea Turtle Nest program, initiated a plastic reduction efforts, and partnered with Sea Turtle Real Estate to open a boutique storefront on Ocean Drive.
Thanks to countless people in the community, we have raised approximately $10,000 to fund these programs in the upcoming year, but our organization has big dreams and the passion to power bigger and better programs.
In 2019, we are striving to do even more amazing things for our local community and coastline. We plan to expand our plastic reduction efforts by growing the “Buy a Bottle, Give a Bottle” program with more outdoor youth organizations. We will continue to fund and grow our coastal clean up efforts, as well as grow our reusable bag program. We would also like to begin installing water bottle filling stations around Vero Beach, beginning at a beachfront park.
All of these items cannot be done without support from amazing people like you!
