The Ocean Futures Society — an organization that promotes the welfare and exploration of oceans worldwide — is asking the public to take the plunge and make a $3,000 tax-deductible payment to their organization in exchange for an ocean-exploring swim fin. The dive blade was designed by Bob Evans, owner of S.B.’s Force Fin, for Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Dive Team and was recently seen in a number of Cousteau PBS specials, including Voyage to Kure, which inspired President George W. Bush to name the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands a national monument. Donations will fund educational programs, underwater research, and film projects. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
