An Overview of the CBO
As part of theCBO Foundation self-funding issue awareness strategy,
our Parent APVG is developing an online travel rewards membership platform called MySandDollar$.com (MSD$). MSD$ is designed to become the universal loyalty-like online travel rewards program across all CBO Foundation and APVG business related brands.
Under the MSD$ program, members will earn SandDollar$ (SD$), the programs virtual online currency for watching videos, logging into the daily plastic factoid feature, sharing our ocean-related messages, and for referring new members.
Anyone over 18 years of age can join for free to become a StarFish
member, which serves as the default starting membership everyone
joins first with a valid email address. Once a StarFish, members can upgrade to a paying membership level if desired, to earn SD$ in greater values for the same online interactions.
They earn SD$ online by engaging in whatever specialty program or initiative they wish to participate in, including our Find Your Plastic Porpoise global treasure hunt, for watching podcast Series, and just for being paying members.
Members accrue and can then redeem their virtual SD$ online for destination lodging, cruises, sailing vacations, other travel related benefits, select logo merchandise, destination resort partner activities, and for resort area food and beverage offers.
Paying members gain access to enhanced travel offers, luxury lodging, cruise cabins and other exotic vacation destinations. The MSD$ travel rewards program will drive participation in many of our programs and awareness efforts, while rewarding them with SD$ for helping spread the ocean messages.
Although we expect organic growth to be strong, it will be mostly driven by those who participate in the MSD$ Membership Referral Income Program (MRIO).
This program allows participants to earn 15% of the paid monthly membership fees long-term from those they have directly referred, up to $!0,000 monthly. This limited feature will likely drive membership growth into the millions of members.
APVG will operate the MSD$ program for a 35% share of adjusted pre-tax earnings, with CBO Foundation retaining 65% to fund its programs and initiatives long-term. Visit the APVG website to learn more about this program and MRIO program.
