Dear ShopAnthropists! Aloha!

April just flew by! Tax returns, Passover, Easter, Royal Wedding... we are breathless.
We are also gearing up for summer over here as our California weather is picture perfect and since beach days lie ahead we chose SURFRIDER FOUNDATION as our Non-Profit-Organization of May.

Coastal ShopAnthropists are probably familiar with Surfrider Foundation but the organization, started 25 years ago in Malibu, CA, by a group of surfers who realized the need to protect their waves, is meanwhile represented on all coasts, including the Great Lakes! Surfrider Foundation is a grass roots organization with 80 local chapters from Alaska to Hawaii as well as international chapters throughout the Pacific Rim, Brazil, Mexico and Australia.  Surfriders all describe themselves as ocean and beach user and their mission "the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network" has earned them well over a hundred thousands members and 121 376 friends on Facebook

Surfrider will organize many wonderful beach action days throughout the USA this summer. Participate in a clean up day and attend a Surfrider Concert. Check out their website for upcoming events and check back here throughout the month of May.
Get their EZ Shopper app and support their great programs: Rise Above Plastics, Blue Water Task Force, Know Your H2O and Ocean Friendly Gardens.

Hang 10!
