Honoring NPB Lifeguards! RIP Ben Carlson



Let's honor our Newport Beach Lifeguards!  All weekend long I watched them pull people from the water, saving lives and keeping our beaches safe.  Unfortunately one lifeguard lost his life while saving others and it made me think, How often do we honor those that constantly risk their lives to save others? Day after day our streets and beaches of flooded with people that  selflessly work to keep us safe.  I wish it didn't take a loss of a life to make me really think about this but I am hopeful that it will really make everyone sit back and think about how lucky we are to be surrounded by people that do this for us, daily!  My goal here is to raise a bunch of money to donate to all of the Newport Beach Lifeguards, in honor of Ben Carlson.  A token of our appreciation.  I need your help.  Please pass this along, spread the word and consider donating $5 or more.   Let's rally as a community and show our love for the heros that are grieving at the loss of their fallen, fellow hero. Once the money is collected I will organize a lifeguard march and we, as a community we will personally deliver the money!  

On 8/2/2014 at 6pm we will be meeting at the corner of 43rd street and Seashore Drive.  Dress all in RED!  Bring the kids, bikes, skateboards, wagons, strollers, baloons, signs, noise makers or whatever you want to bring to show your support.  We are going to MARCH, as a community, to the lifeguard headquarters to deliver the funds raised and express our deep gratitude for our local lifeguards. I urge you to get involved and would love your thoughts or ideas of how we can makes this even better and more special for these lifesavors!

Please contact me with any questions or ideas and thank you so much for your support!  Please share this page!
