We get asked all the time…how can we help when we come to the island? Easy as Sunday Morning…here are our favorites!
Founded in 2010, the Turks & Caicos Reef Fund is the only active environmental advocacy organization in the TCI.
It is an all volunteer-run organization that provides funding for education, research and conservation programs to individuals, organizations and agencies that help to preserve and protect the environment of the Turks & Caicos Islands.
Their goal is to have at least 85% of all funds raised through voluntary contributions from divers and snorkelers visiting the Turks & Caicos Islands directed to the Fund’s programs.
Programs include Adopt-A-Coral where they are growing coral in nurseries, fund boat mooring so dive and snorkel operators don’t tie off to coral, East Caicos monitoring project and Report a Lionfish to name a few!
Anyone wishing to donate or assist the TCRF in any way can contact them through their website, www.TCReef.org. Scuba divers visiting the islands are encouraged to make a $10 donation through the purchase of a dive tag that can be attached to their dive gear to show their support. Snorkelers visiting the islands can show their support through the $5 purchase of a pink or blue silicone wristband. Look for the TC Reef Fund link on our dive operators page here and the snorkel operators page here.
The Tired Stool Project
This project was born out of concern for the impact that garbage has on the island. Locals Tito and Atekah Seymour have rescued tires that would otherwise be buried on the island and turned them into works of art. (Tires are not biodegradable)
In an effort to give as much back to the community that we can...we started The Tired Stool School Give Back Program.
You can make an impact on the island by donating these beauties to a well deserving teacher and students.
The cost is $65...you can make payments at our store in Providenciales or you can pay via PayPal...(For PayPal payments there is a $10 additional fee added to the cost because of the fees we get charged for the transaction).
We also collect school supplies and distribute them to different public schools all over Turks And Caicos Islands.
If you would like to make a donation please feel free to drop off donations at our store. Our email address is email@example.com
