To our Plastic Ocean Project Family,
To simply say thank you would be an understatement of our appreciation for your generosity. Over the course of October 2020, you have helped us raise a total of $1,705 to sponsor undergraduate research through our organization’s Tealstarter campaign. The ongoing challenges of navigating a global pandemic have made the last few months challenging for all. We couldn’t be more grateful for the support, dedication and passion you have provided to our student organization. It is uplifting and invigorating to receive such support during these uncertain times. As undergraduate students, we thank you for investing in robust and impactful student research.
Each donation was essential for us to make a difference in our laboratory, our fieldwork and in the lives of our students. Your gift will help take our students into local waterways to collect samples, into the laboratory to analyze and study plastic pollution and into the next stages of their lives as researchers, visionaries and problem-solvers for our planet. Every donation will help change the life of a student and contribute to the addition of quality work in the field of science. It is our goal to conduct research studies with applications that reach far beyond our lab, UNCW and the NC Coast.
While we can’t fully express how much we value your support for our mission and organization, we want to thank you for your contribution to the fight to save our seas and heal our planet. People like you keep the world going and keep us going. You give us hope, energy and motivation to move forward. With that, we couldn’t be more thankful for your support.
An ocean of gratitude,
Sam Shores, President, UNCW Plastic Ocean Project
