Save a Life Fundraiser 2017-08-29T18:47:45+00:00

We are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with Sagan Life to create Save A Life Fundraiser. This initiative will provide 900 water filter bottles to deserving community members of Bocas del Toro, Panama.

900 BOTTLES for 900 CHILDREN for 900 LIVES

Each bottle will filter 250 gallons of “contaminated” water, so these bottles will provide with safe drinkable water for about one year.

More about the need for clean drinking water in Bocas del Toro:

The overwhelming majority of indigenous living in Bocas del Toro, Panama do not have access to clean drinking water due to water contamination from nearby farms, bathroom facilities, and because of stagnant water being a source for bacteria and parasites. Children from this area experience many difficulties adapting to life without clean drinking water and therefore are prone to getting ill and miss school regularly. There is no option for these individuals to access clean drinking water other than through a filtration system and this reason Sagan is providing this simple solution to provide 900 individuals access to clean drinking water with their filter bottles.

More about Sagan: 

Sagan Industries LLC is committed to providing safe, pure healthy drinking water to everyone for camping, hiking, outdoor adventures, in case of emergency and especially for every day use. Learn more about Sagan here.

In the early 1500s, the ancestors of these children were visited by Columbus and were able to defeat him. Over 500 years later, the Ngobe people are still battling infringement on their land that is causing them extreme poverty, a lack of education, and a loss of their culture. This Indigenous Peoples Day, recognize that the effects of imperialism are still destructive and research non profit organizations like @giveandsurf who are working hard to improve the lives of indigenous people. #IndigenousPeoplesDayMay you never outgrow bubbles! #giveandsurfSee you tomorrow San Diego! @indigo_festivalOur first TEFL: Teach English as a Foreign Language graduate, Shane, putting his skills to work during English class in Bahia Honda ✨! ....
