Tsunami Relief and Coral Reef Aid In One Click

In the wake of the December 2004 tsunami, 90% of all
small boats in the Andaman Islands off the coast of
southern Thailand were destroyed. The GreenLife Society
(GLS) lost their only boat. Without a boat, GLS is
unable to collect vital data on the state of their reefs
so that government, fisheries, resource managers, and
local communities can start making plans to rebuild
their lives. Diversion Dive Travel has pledged $5,000
to support the purchase of a boat for GLS to continue
their urgent conservation projects.

But we need your help...

In order to receive the $5,000 from Diversion Dive
Travel, we need YOU to click on a daily email during the
upcoming online "Donation Drive" fundraising event

Each time you respond to one of these emails,
Diversion Dive Travel will donate 75 cents to the GreenLife
Society on your behalf. Once there have been 6,667
clicks, Diversion Dive Travel will donate the full $5,000
to the GreenLife Society to purchase the new boat.
Each day you can help raise money for this cause while
learning something new about how this money will make a
difference. All without spending a cent.
