Save the Lagoon: International Coastal Cleanup 2016

  • November 28, 2017 is #GivingTuesday

    logo-giving-lagoon-day#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It's a great way to give back to your community and environment by supporting nonprofit organizations around the world. Giving Tuesday kicks off the holiday giving season, celebrating selflessness and the genuine meaning of what the end of the year is truly about.

    We are rebranding it “Giving LagoonDay” and encourage you to remember MRC on November 28 as well as to share Giving LagoonDay posts with your family and friends.
