What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Ocean Sole Africa making Art

At Ocean Sole Africa we spend everyday focused on cleaning our oceans. Everyday over 3 BILLION people where a 'flip-flop' type shoe globally--mostly in hot emerging markets. Those shoes are discarded into dumps and then make their way through waterways to our Oceans -- killing both humans and marine life in their path.

At Ocean Sole Africa we clean beaches -- all debris and recycle them into flip-flop art, eco-boards for affordable housing and other products. We support other conservation efforts to help the oceans and coastal communities.

We need YOUR help. The beaches are a disaster. The reefs are ruined. The people are suffering. We need to clean our OCEAN faster, make more art, invest in employing more artists, buy recycling machinery and advocate the mission. The more we grow--the more impact we make.

thank you
