Vote To Help Save America's Shores

Have you ever wondered what you can do to help keep your favorite beach beautiful? The Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project has the answer. To raise awareness about major Surfrider Foundation environmental campaigns in celebration of Surfrider’s 25th anniversary, Barefoot wine is donating $25,000 to directly help support local Surfrider Foundation chapters and their efforts to protect America’s shores. Beginning May 1, 2009 through August 15, 2009, Barefoot is encouraging everyone to learn more and cast their vote for one of four Surfrider Foundation campaigns in need of more awareness and financial support. The four highlighted campaigns are:

* Clear the Path (Oahu, HI)
Focus on better beach access through public education and legislation

* Challenge Beach Management Permitting Practices (Palm Beach County, FL)
Working to stop harmful beach fill projects and educate the public on the fragility of beach ecosystems

* Save Gaviota Coast (Santa Barbara County, CA)
Helping preserve the Gaviota Coast from development

* Sink the Breakwater (Long Beach, CA)
Restore the natural flow of ocean currents, improve water quality and bring back waves
