Hello! Hello! If you've found this page then I hope you are here to help me raise awareness of the marine pollution problem that we are facing here in Bermuda. My name is Karen Plianthos and myself, along with my mom Louise Jones, my two daughters Ophelia and Grace Plianthos and numerous other willing and unwilling (like my husband Nicolas Plianthos! :-)) volunteers will be spending the month of June 2023 removing trash from the oceans, beaches and coastlines of Bermuda. I am kindly asking for donations of $1 for every 1 pound of trash that we collect. I am hopeful that in the 30 days of this month we will be able to get out into our Bermudaful waters at least enough times to collect up 2204.62 pounds of trash - or 1 TON OF TRASH! Any monies raised will be split equally between two charities one local and one international that is environmentally or marine focused or both. Keep Bermuda Beautiful https://www.kbb.bm is the local charity selected this year and I AM WATER https://www.iamwaterfoundation.org is the international charity in South Africa. Please help us reach our goal!
For those wanting to understand why my brother Wayne Jones is the recipient of the funds, it is due to the requirement of a US based account to use this donation platform - please note that all monies received will be distributed to the two charities above. You have my word.
Thank you for giving - your time if you want to come with us and pick up trash, your money to help us support these two incredible charities, your encouragement to keep us on track to reach our goal!
