Raising funds and awareness

Raising funds and awareness

I’m excited about raising funds for Project AWARE and supporting the new goals for conservation.

First, in an effort to promote the AWARE certification cards, I have challenged the retail and instructional staff at A-1 Scuba to encourage students to get the AWARE version of their certification card (minimum donation $10). For each donation to Project AWARE, I’m going to match, dollar for dollar up to $1,000 for the contributions made by our students during the 4th quarter of 2011.  

I'm already seeing a good increase in number of PIC online forms requesting the Project AWARE version of the certification card. I’m looking forward to writing a check to Project AWARE in January and I hope it’s for a full match of $1,000.
