We recommend picking a number that feels slightly higher than what you think you’re capable of.

I'm very excited to be a Champion for Clean Water this Give Miami Day! I’m supporting Miami Waterkeeper, an environmental organization that ensures swimmable, drinkable, fishable water for all.
Miami Waterkeeper is the only non-profit organization in South Florida that is bridging the gap between science and policy, providing decision-makers with the best and latest research as they shape our future. Miami Waterkeeper also engages the broader community - both youth and adults - in environmental education and civic action.
The health of Biscayne Bay affects us all – whether you live on the water or more inland. That’s why the Miami Waterkeeper team advocates for policies and projects that promote clean water, protect our natural habitats, and make us a more resilient community against sea level rise.
Please join me in supporting Miami Waterkeeper by making a gift today!
