b22squared Posted July 15, 2012 Share Posted July 15, 2012 First off, I want to advise this isn't spam or self-promotion. In 2007, I lost my mom to lung cancer, ended up taking her dream trip to Australia, and decided to start a charity specializing in shark dives and therapeutic marine encounters. It is a heartfelt, legitimate cause, and I'm confident that it is my calling in life to help others. First, I would be interested in other's thoughts on how useful experiences like shark dives, dolphins swims, whale-watching cruises, and marine-themed community events could be. Keep in mind, very few of the types of activities we would do would require SCUBA certification, though I would love to introduce some to the sport over time. My issue so far has been funding. I've been blessed to be selected as a finalist out of 500+ entrants. The sponsor has encouraged us to involve the media and respective community groups. I'm 1 of only 15 finalists competing for $30,000 and narrowly leading right now! Again, I'm not doing this as self-promotion but wanted to share my video and, if you want to vote/share, you can. The voting ends 07/25, and you can bookmark and vote daily using the yellow vote button. If you like the story, then use the like/social media buttons to share. Also, you don't have to share any info/email or register to vote, and it only takes about 10 seconds though I hope you will watch the 2-minute video. This is my way of sharing my story as a caregiver and living out my mom's legacy. Thanks for your time. Brandon I also attached a pic of a survivor and I swimming with whale sharks! http://www.strivectin.com/powertochange/?x=us_showcase22_2716_31 * it's the sea lion video Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
