Good day. My name is Deon Botha.
I am starting a non-profit organization to fulfill a desperate need that affects us all, but mostly future generations and wildlife.
This organization will have massive campaigns that will focus on globally cleaning cities, beaches, towns and streets of plastic waste, and converting that to a reusable resource.
These plastics will be molded and treated to produce safe and cost effective housing and products for people living in poverty.
The money that gets raised here will help me establish this non-profit organization and allow me to set up a base of operations from where I can start running campaigns and recruiting people to help with all aspects of the organization. Also, to buy the necessary equipment to keep all projects alive and constantly moving forward.
Your contributions will go towards ensuring a clean and healthy environment for your children when they grow up, and help remove the impact that waste has on the worlds marine life.
Later, as the organization grows, my goal is to recruit teams of trawlers to go out to the great pacific garbage patch and constantly bring back loads of plastic to be converted into renewable resources.
To put it into perspective, people that have been to the great pacific garbage patch, like captain Charles Moore of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation, estimate that there's a minimum of 100 million tons of plastic just floating and poisoning our oceans and marine life.
We owe it to the planet, to our children and future generations, to clean up the mess man kind has made.
It's going to be a long and hard battle, but if everyone pitches in to help, we can have our beautiful planet back one day.
Thank you for your contribution.
