Our community is growing. We are so warmly received by the community members in Brazil. These are beach communities that are coming together because of inspiration from our selfless staff and volunteers.
This event was almost entirely organized and executed by Brazilian Volunteers acting on behalf of COI. Local business owners and residents have shared their joy with our concern for their home by doubling the amount of volunteers and effectively doubling the amount of trash collected. Planning has already begun to make 2018 even better.
Thanks to everyone involved, See you Next Year.
