And now for a sweet story of some young ocean activists in Pennsylvania that we can’t resist sharing:
Earlier this year, the students of Germantown Friends School’s Environmental Action Club had an idea -- they wanted to start a lemonade stand to raise money to fix a machine in the school's greenhouse. Then the gulf oil spill happened, and the greenhouse didn’t seem quite so urgent anymore.
The students decided to give their lemonade funds to organizations helping out with the spill -- including Oceana. They also encouraged members of the community to send letters to Obama and PA congresspeople expressing their opposition to offshore drilling.
Here’s the kicker: Our CEO, Andy Sharpless, was once himself a student at Germantown Friends School. Needless to say, he was thankful and proud of his early alma mater when he heard the news.
Thanks, Germantown Friends!
