An Overview of the CBO
Ocean Messenger Initiative
The CBO Foundation will offer two core ocean issue awareness vehicles: 1) a full-color digital magazine called the CBO Ocean Messenger to be published quarterly, and 2) the Ocean Messenger Video Podcast, a weekly series of talks hosted by our founder The Shark.
Both will keep readers and viewers up to date on ocean news and trends, the progress we and other organizations are making, and the number of diversified for-profit businesses of our parent company. Our common goal is to educate the general public about the oceans and the issues they face, from plastic waste to overfishing and shark fining, in a fun, rewarding and interactive way.
We will accomplish this by showcasing the issues, without blaming anyone for them. Share viable solutions as to how we can all help resolve those issues and the progress being made to that end. We will share the images and info slides (like the one shown above) with our readers whenever possible in the hope of accomplishing our stated goals.
The online Ocean Messenger magazine and podcasts will be made available free to all members of the CBO MySandDollars.com (MSD$) travel rewards program (which will be free to join with an email address). they will also available to and members of the AngelPreneur Founders Club (visit APVG) with additional content features and other ocean-focused non-profit organizations.
A limited number of printed copies of our magazine will be made available for distribution to APVG's FoundersClub members and a select list of university and public libraries, and to any subscribers who wish to receive them. They will not be distributed through the normal retail newsstands.
Both the Ocean Messenger magazine and podcast will offer limited advertising space to help offset the cost of production, to our established ocean-focused partners, fellow non-profit organizations and select brand advertisers.
To help solve the ocean issues we MUST work together and share the issues in as many ways as possible. Join us and contribute to our FundRazr campaign if you can to help support our efforts.
