#GivingTuesday was created six years ago as a response to the overwhelming consumerism of Black Friday and its younger relative, Cyber Monday. It’s a focus point for nonprofits to engage in a year-end fund drive to power the next year’s programs and it’s a reminder that, in this season of giving, we can all play a part in making the world a little bit better place to be. Celebrated in the U.S. on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday marks the start of this time when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year contributions.

The Ikkatsu Project has a full schedule for 2018: freshwater testing for plastics with Middle School students from the Sumner School District is entering its 3rd year; the second Tacoma Shoreline Survey is set for this spring; ongoing surveys and cleanups at beaches in Puget Sound and on the Washington coast; public presentations and film production focused on marine plastics; regular and consistent engagement with lawmakers at the local, state and federal levels on ocean issues; the South Kuiu Cleanup, focused on cleaning debris from four remote beaches in southeast Alaska…

Please consider a contribution to help make 2018 a successful year for our marine environment, here in Puget Sound and throughout Cascadia. The Ikkatsu Project is a small organization that is doing big things and your assistance is appreciated more than you can know. It’s as simple as a few clicks of the mouse and every bit helps.
