Jack Johnson Beach Clean Up Series Report

20110115-JJ-BCUS-ReportEight cities in 2 countries over 16 days, the frequent flyer points were really starting to add up, and the hours of sleep were starting to go into negative numbers, but this was an opportunity in a lifetime and we weren't about to say no!

Tangaroa Blue was invited to have a display at each of Jack Johnson's 2010 New Zealand and Australian concerts. Not only were we able to promote our organisation and sign up new volunteers, but we were given concert tickets and signed merchandise for fundraising and any donation that was received would be matched, dollar for dollar, by Jack Johnson's All At Once organisation (up to US$2500, pending approval by CAFAmerica).


Jack Johnson Concert Beach Clean Up Series

20101222-JJ-Concert-BCUSAs part of our participation in the 2010 Jack Johnson Australian and New Zealand tour, Tangaroa Blue, Two Hands Project and Sustainable Coastlines in NZ will be running a beach clean up in locations where the tour will visit.

Volunteers are needed to help out, so if you have a free hour join us to help keep our oceans clean! Many hands make light work.

Jack Johnson has also donated an autographed "To The Sea" CD and a special edition autographed poster that will be raffled off at each clean up event! All volunteers will be in the draw to win!!!
