Paddle Battle for Fish Gotta Swim

Dear WiSE Friend,

For over 40 years, Wilderness Southeast (WiSE), a nonprofit organization in Savannah, Georgia, has provided dynamic eco-adventures and unparalleled environmental education for students, families, and groups of all ages. We are seeking urgent funding for WiSE, so that we may continue connecting people to nature and reintroduce our flagship program, Fish Gotta Swim©, to the public schools this fall. We have several outstanding grant applications but may be forced to close our doors if we do not receive funding soon.

Unfortunately, due to constraints imposed by the pandemic, our finances and in-person programs have been severely curtailed. One of these programs is Fish Gotta Swim©, our hands-on, environmental education program for underserved middle school students in Chatham County.

To raise awareness and much-needed funds, WiSE is sponsoring a virtual "Paddle Battle" all summer long for SUPs, kayakers and nature enthusiasts everywhere. The Paddle Battle runs from June 21st - September 7th, and its boundaries for participation are limitless (compete from anywhere)! Participants can win prizes for the most water miles logged and/or money raised - individually or as a "TEAM" - on Give Lively.org.

Visit our GiveLively.org page to donate to our campaign or create a TEAM or INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISING PAGE for the Paddle Battle. Simply click "I want to fundraise for this" on our campaign page. Upload your pics and videos on social media with the hashtags #FishGottaSwim and #PaddleBattle! More prize categories will be announced soon on our website (https://www.wilderness-southeast.org) as well as our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/WildernessSoutheast/). Tell your friends, and help us emphasize the "FUN" in fundraising!

Will you please help to give WiSE the monetary foundation it needs not only to recover from the pandemic, but to grow and thrive? The future of our children and our planet depends on immersive eco-education programs like Fish Gotta Swim©!
