Happy New Year! We're gratified by the response to our request for fiscal support at the close of 2013. Thank you to all who answered the call to protect what you love, whether you're donating for the first time or renewing a commitment to continue the fight for a clean and healthy ocean. And a warm welcome to the 40 new members who joined Heal the Bay during the holidays. We're looking forward to your involvement in 2014.
And a deserved shout-out to the following:
We thank the SIMA Fund (Surf Industry Manufacturing Association) for its renewed support of our Beach Report Card®, Heal the Bay’s signature tool for informing the public about water quality at beaches statewide.
Congratulations to Chanel Hason of Pasadena, who was recently named Miss Marine Conservation (and kudos to Chanel for donating her prize money to Heal the Bay).
And finally a thank you to our friend Jeff Littrell for spending hours and hours of his time over the holidays re-coding beachreportcard.org so that it would work with the new version of Google maps. His work to update the website was priceless.
