LAURIE BRATONE’S FUNDRAISER:
2015 AMERICAN LITTORAL SOCIETY
Join the American Littoral Society to Care for our Coast!
The Society is pleased to be a part of the OceanFirst Charity Challenge to raise funds to promote the study and conservation of marine life and habitat, protect the coast from harm, and empower you to do the same.
With your support, we could win an additional $15,000 grant from the OceanFirst Foundation. That’s a lot of dunegrass.
Since 1961 the Society has worked to restore hundreds of miles of New Jersey coastal and wetland shores to healthy, resilient habitats.
We empower people to care for the coast through advocacy, conservation, andeducation. We not only provide a voice for the coast, but also give concerned citizens the knowledge and tools they need to raise their voices with us.
When we restore habitat, our objective is not only to restore a dune or rebuild an oyster reef, but also to motivate people to invest “sweat equity” into a piece of the coast, take ownership, and become committed stewards.
When we educate, we don’t merely provide books, CDs, or handouts. We lead students young and old into the water to get their feet wet and their hands muddy.
Sitting at a computer or reading a book you may develop an interest in the coast; standing knee deep in sea foam with sand between your toes, you will develop a passion for the coast. Won’t you join us?

SUPPORT OUR MISSION BY CREATING YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER.If you’re as passionate about our cause as we are, it’d be amazing if you created a fundraiser on Crowdrise to raise money for our Charity. Crowdrise makes it super easy and fun, and your support is invaluable to our mission. Consider giving up your next birthday by asking for donations instead of gifts. Or run a marathon and ask your friends to sponsor you. We love getting donations but there’s nothing better than when you go a step further and help us raise money from your network of friends. Lots of little donations really do add up. The power of the crowd is real. Please create a fundraiser and help us make a real-life difference for this incredibly important cause.
