IMMER'S STORY

education

My cause is protecting our oceans from pollution. Growing up in Puerto Rico, the ocean was my life. I would go to beaches almost daily to fish and surf. I cannot recall how many times I have seen beaches littered with trash or going fishing and reeling in a plastic bag. After one too many of those experiences, I decided to do my part and clean up local beaches with groups of friends. If one small group of people can make a difference, supporting a large organization that is dedicated to that cause can have a bigger impact. Funding through CFC would positively impact my cause. With more people supporting the cause, more can be accomplished. The CFC is important because it provides donors with the information they need to choose a cause they care about and how their donation is helping to make a difference. It also helps the organizations by making information more readily available to those willing to participate.
