I freedive for fun and for happy days. I freedive to get food for dinner. I freedive to have a great time with our guests. In May 2013, I will freedive as well “for a cause….”. The humanitarian non-profit organization, Diving for a Cause, is coming to Cozumel. Great news for Cozumel!
Diving For A Cause is created to help children and communities in need all over the world. They are helping to make a difference in the lives of so many children through the passion for spearfishing.
So whats the plan? From May 20 to 26 of next year, eight divers will come and spearfish with us for six days in a row. The harvested fish will be given back to the communities where these resources are used to feed those in need. The proceeds from the fish may also be utilized for their schools and medical clinics. Also, we will devote a couple of days to the community. We might be planting trees, participating in group community projects, or help refurbish the schools with a fresh coat of paint. Some of us might be teaching the young children to snorkel and appreciate the wonders of the ocean.
You can not expect good things to happen to you in life when you don’t give back. It is a great feeling to give back! Especially when you can combine that with doing something you love like spearfishing. You wanna be one of the eight divers? Keep an eye on our website or onhttp://divingforacause.org.
Details will follow soon.
