Review for Surfrider Foundation, San Clemente, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Growing up on the Florida coastline I learned of the importance of a clean and healthy waterway system. Now that I have moved to the west coast, Surfrider is still here to make sure that we have a balance between industry, lifestyle and clean water. I have often promoted the work surfrider does to my friends and associates. As a Conservative Republican, one may not link my political interests with my environmental protection...but let me assure you surfrider has the ability to reach every person of all backgrounds and beliefs because clean beaches, coastlines, and water is important to everyone on the planet. They use many tools to reach out and communicate to their members, and beach cleanups and civic meetings are always well populated. I make it a point to do as much as I can for surfrider, because I want them to as much as they can to adhere to their mission.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

every visit I make to the beach, and in helping to stop civic projects that would cause harm to the environment.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue the great work they are currently doing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how they keep every member informed with out killing trees to do it.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always energenic, polite and accepting.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world.

Ways to make it better...

I lived closer to the beach and could help out more.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

misconceptions and political attitudes from other groups, while the surfrider foundation always helps to bridge the gap and find alternatives.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I do not donate money to any other organizations except the Republican party and the Surfrider foundation, both groups are important to me and I am passionate in my support of both.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Donor & I give money to the local chapter, West LA, and I volunteer as much as I can. I proudly talk about them and display my surfrider sticker on my car.
