An Overview of
CBO Foundation Programs
Although there are many issues that impact our oceans worldwide, and we will attempt to address most of them through our programs and initiatives, Our goal is to address the issues in an educational and entertaining way, while rewarding participants through the MySandDollars.com (MSD$) an online travel rewards program, being developed in partnership with APVG.
Our three (3) core issues focus on reducing Ocean Plastic Waste, Overfishing, and Shark Finning. To accomplish this goal we developed the programs listed below, with a brief description outlining each that we hope to launch starting in 2020.

Once the CBO Foundation receives its tax exempt status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS), it will begin accepting contributions from private and corporate donors for its programs. Donors will be able to allocate all funds to one or more programs they wish to support. Private donors will receive a one ounce (1oz) .999 pure custom limited edition CBO Silver Medallion for every $250 in cumulative contribution reward or as a gift.
The CBO Marine Debris Recovery Group (CBO Marine Group), is several years out, but being developed by our parentAPVG. Once it launches its first combination cruise ship/clean-up vessel, it will develop and offer a unique working cruise travel program for guests seeking a meaningful working holiday to clean-up a remote island or coastline on 7, 14 and even 21 day missions to destinations that the average traveler could never access. The adventure travel excursion of a lifetime.
The CBO PlasticPreneur program is designed to provide funding and local support to volunteers who conduct regional beach and coastal clean-up missions. The scope of the waste crisis has resulted in many areas receiving an endless amount of waste washing up on its shores daily. This program hopes to build a network of repeat coastal clean-up events to partner with on a quarterly or annual basis.
The CBO Foundation is developing its Let's Talk Trash quarterly conference series designed to bring experts in ocean and marine debris, waste management and marine life conservation together to address and discuss issues and solutions. These conferences will be held within our proposed Conference Center in Hawaii or other coastal resort area we locate our principal office in.
