It's simple - I will give you this photo for FREE - come enter on my Facebook page. 
My friend Bonnie suggested it could be a great holiday gift for a friend or family member!

Singer-songwriter Verity came out for the beach cleanup tonight. She has an incredible voice. 

She moved to Santa Monica just last week. What a great addition to our community. 
She believes in being of service too. Welcome Verity!

Tip #5 to help the ocean - STRETCH YOURSELF!

Perhaps not litteraly stretch yourself although flexibility is a key component to good health.

Tip #5 means CHALLENGE YOURSELF to be bolder with your talents, and creativity for the ocean. 

Your message will reach people in a way that only you can think of. 

Your skills and your imagination are needed to engage and empower people. 

I still don't like using a computer to spread my message. I often feel frustrated at the inconsitencies and glitches that come from being "online" and let's not even talk about Facebook! But I do it because it reaches people. I do it because the message is bigger than me and while I remain uncomfortable being visable, I do it because it works. I have so many connections and friendships all over the world because I took my message online three and a half years ago. 

You don't have to start a blog to stretch yourself. Tip #5 is more general than that, but I ask you, 
can you be doing a little bit more than you are currently doing to help the ocean? 

Can you start with one small challenge this week? 

Maybe it is as simple as starting a Facebook page to invite your friends, family and collegues to get together for a monthly beach or neighborhood cleanup? 

What you think of will make a change. That's the nature of action, it produces change. Thank you!
