For Your Consideration: What about a donation to Surfrider Foundation in honor of MamaG?

Hello,

Our flowers have been delivered to Mama G's family.

I haven't had a chance to PM all those who want to contribute, but I will tomorrow. I predict there will be plenty left over to donate somewhere and we all seem to have the ocean and whales as a thought.

Surfrider Foundation is a nonprofit organization with branches all over the world and one right in Mama G's territory. Their mission is to save the oceans -- Google it and see what you think.

Just a thought, but has to be one most of us like:)

I'm grateful for each and every voice on this board.

xoxo
Victoria

I couldn't think of anything more perfect in memory of Lorraine! This is the most perfect idea! Lorraine loved the surfing, the beach, and, took the most beautiful pictures of it. Thanks so much Victoria!

I have just read about Mama G's passing. Since I didn't know about the flowers I would like to contribute to whatever charity you have in mind. Please send me a PM with your address so I can send you a check.
Thanks, Char

The past week has had me tide up with the possibility of losing my SIL to Pancreatic Cancer that I had not heard about MamaG till today. It made me very sad. So much loss to Cancer. But Im glad so many were able to donate. I love you all so much.

This is Marissa, and I just wanted to say thank you sooo sooo much for all the support you all have given my mom in the past and even to her and her family now! This network is amazing! Thank you all so much, she touched many lives that I had no idea about.
She would love for the money to go to the surfrider foundation, she was actually a member!
Thank you all again for all the prayers, thoughts, flowers, and contributions in her name. I will keep all of you in my prayers. This is a poem I read at the end of her eulogy, it was beautiful and I think you all would enjoy it:

"You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on" ~ David Harkens, British Poet
