Help Surfrider Spread the Word About Clean Water

Improving and maintaining healthy ocean water quality has been one of our top priorities since our organization was founded 25 years ago. Next year the Surfrider Foundation will be rolling out an exciting new program called "Know Your H2O."

This program, which was piloted by our San Diego Chapter, is the next evolutionary step following our successful Blue Water Task Force water quality testing program. Know Your H2O seeks to educate the public on how they can have a direct impact on enhancing ocean water quality. Not only will this program speak to those audiences along our nation's coasts, we will be using it to message to audiences across all of the United States regardless of proximity to the beach or coastline.

Along with educational tools and materials, one of our goals is to create a stand alone interactive website for the program. That is where you come in...

The Surfrider Foundation is currently entered into an online contest on the social media site Youtopia. The winners of this contest will be eligible to receive $15,000 worth of design and/or strategic communications services from their menu of core offerings: strategy consulting, identity design, web design, print design, and online movies. In this time of tight budgets, this will tremendously help us spread the word about how to keep our ocean waters healthy.

Please visit the Youtopia website and vote for the Know Your H2O Flash Movie Website.

This action is free and takes just a few moments to complete.

As well, please do pass on this request to any of your friends or contacts who you feel would be interested in assisting the Surfrider Foundation find a new educational effort.
