An Overview of Our
Thank you for stopping by our FundRazr Crowdfunding Campaign
(FundRazr) page. This page is intended to share most of our goals and objectives, the intended use of proceeds and offered rewards strategy for your making a contribution in support of our efforts.
We decided to launch our FundRazr campaign with a $250,000 or more goal. Our objective is to start building a base of like-minded global ocean activists, the OceanPreneurs who understand that the issues that impact our oceans like plastic packaging waste must be addressed.
To help us fund the hiring of the 25 to 30 team mates we will need in our initial two years to accomplish our stated goals. To open our principal office in Kaanapali on the Island of Maui, Hawaii, and two
satellite offices in Camarillo, California and Tampa, Florida beginning in January 2021.
We have spent many years developing our programs and initiatives to help increase awareness of the ocean issues as outlined elsewhere on our website. More importantly, we have integrated much of these with the for-profit businesses of our parent company to help find viable solutions and alternatives.
Some of our programs or initiatives are already underway, however, we realize it will take millions of dollars to fully accomplish all of our stated goals. To get there we have to start someplace, and this is that place! Click here to make a contribution.
We will begin the launch process with our Ocean Messenger video Podcast starting in December. Once our initial office is established, we will begin hiring team leaders, branch managers and rework our website. Next we will begin publishing our Ocean Messenger Magazine with a goal of having the first issue out in March 2021.
By summer 2021, subject to funding, we hope to have our satellite
offices open, all of our programs better defined and underway. It will be a process that we believe will lead to success. Of course none of this is possible without engaging the support of a global following.
Our FundRazr campaign is in part a test run for us to gage just how people view and understand the ocean's importance and the issues that impact them, and us in general. If we reach our stated funding goal then we will move full steam ahead. If not, then we will need to revisit our strategies once again.
Although we will use all net proceeds to accomplish our goals, to show our appreciation for your contributions we offer the following gift rewards: Click here to make a contribution

"If your dreams don't scare you they are too small.
Dreaming comes with some level of risk, and the biggest and
best dreams come with a lot of risk – failure, criticism or loss of hope.
But those who achieve great things are the ones willing to be scared but not scared off.
Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear."
Sir Richard Branson
