Help Required



Not interested or able to attend our beach cleanups but want to help Heal the Bay protect our beaches and the marine animals that live in our ocean waters? Maybe you are a rockstar at raising money at your school fundraisers and want to help us raise funds to continue our work keeping Southern California's coastal waters and watersheds healthy, safe, and clean. From holding a lemonade stand or bake sale to setting up your own fundraising page, you can help make a difference!

What's Needed To Complete

This totally depends on what you decide to do to help raise money. Needed items could range from lemonade, cups, signs and a table for a simple lemonade stand to a computer and a birthday for setting up a fundraising page for your birthday (rather than gifts). It's up to you what you do and what you'll need, but Mom, Dad or other grown-up can help you figure that part out.

Whose Help Is Required

Mom, Dad or other grown-up to help set up and execute the project

How It Makes A Difference

Heal the Bay owes its 30 years of success to its thousands of volunteers and donors who make our work possible. By raising funds for Heal the Bay, you are helping us in our fight to keep our coastal waters and watersheds healthy, safe and clean for marine life and our communities.
