Thank-You-OPC
26 May 2015

We made it! A huge thank you to everybody who supported our crowdfunding campaign! Thanks to your donations, we actually exceeded our target by 20% – collecting almost 18,000 euros!! This is incredible, and we sincerely thank you for your trust in us. As you can see at our Facebook page, we already started our diving activities last weekend, and thanks to your help, we can add even more dives, will be able to collect an extra 10 tons of discarded nets and save a lot of marine animals this summer! They will probably be very grateful too :-)
