Treat Us to a Coffee
How it started... Laura's story
" I discovered The Ocean and Us, then W4O, when I was at a bit of a low point. Greta Thunberg had recently given her now famous September 2019 UN speech challenging people not to look away while at the same time, I found myself diagnosed with breast cancer, a rather harsh wake up call about what is really important in the world. While getting treatments and chemo, I decided to get educated about climate change issues and found W4O. I reached out to a member here in town and asked if she would meet me at a local coffee house here in The Hague. Much to my surprise, she agreed.
From that day onward The Ocean and Us has been a constant source of information and inspiration for me. I follow them on all their platforms and am thankful to the organization for its dedication to advancing the health of our oceans and the women working to protect them. The group and all of its members are simply inspiring. I am going to buy them a proverbial cup of coffee by donating €5 and challenge you to do the same. Cheers to The Ocean and Us! " - Laura
