DIVING FOR A CAUSE
Diving For A Cause is a humanitarian non-profit organization created to help children and communities in need all over the world. We are helping to make a difference in the lives of so many children through our passion for spearfishing.
We donate the harvested fish back to the communities where these resources are used to feed those in need. The proceeds from the fish may also be utilized for their schools and medical clinics.
At every destination at least two days will be devoted to the community. We might be planting trees, participating in group community projects, or help refurbish the schools with a fresh coat of paint. Some of us might be teaching the young children to snorkel and appreciate the wonders of the ocean.
We also wanted to give back locally so DFAC joined with the local dive club on the east coast and we are raising money with a spearfishing event in June for Cystic Fibrosis. DFAC directs all the net proceeds to Cystic Fibrosis and we will raise 10K for CF we believe and hopefully more! CF is a debilitating disease for children and we hope to help make a difference with our joint efforts in this spearfishing charity event.
We are planning similar fundraising activities here on the west coast in August and hosting a Spearfishing event to the Channel Islands. DFAC is donating the net proceeds to Ovarian Cancer research in honor of Bonnie Row, an accomplished diver, who represented the USA in the World Spearfishing Championships in Chili. DFAC also partners with Food Share, Ventura County's Food Bank and helps to feed needy families with the gift of the fish that is harvested.
DFAC and the host of the country help to subsidize the costs to bring the divers to each event. We want as many divers as possible to have the opportunity to participate.
The costs include your lodging, boat fees and meals for the days you are participating with DFAC. DFAC also pays for the extra bags each diver brings with him on some of these trips loaded with donated school supplies that we can put right into the hands of the children.Diving For A Cause has received international support.
Local Food Donations
With a team of spearfishermen, we can donate several pounds of fish to the locals, over several days of diving. By selectively choosing the right species of fish to share, we can avoid over fished species and that will help to ensure healthy sustainable fish stocks.
Diving For A Cause has hosted spearfishing trips in places such as LaPaz, Mexico, Panama, Punta de Mita, Wrightsville Beach NC, Cape Hatteras NC, The Channel Islands, Ecuador, Nicaragua,Tobago and soon in Bahamas, New Zealand, and many more destinations. There is such a need in all these destinations by the local schools and clinics for our help. See Trip Info for more details!
There are many more experiences to come!
Diving For A Cause.Org is a non-profit organization. It is a unique opportunity to combine the passion of spearfishing with helping those in need.
Please come join us in giving back to the children.
As a charitable organization, DFAC provides two types of services. Our first service objective is to serve impoverished communities by working with needy children, supplying food, medical supplies, school supplies and community improvements at no cost. Our second service objective is to provide a means for spearfishermen to give back to those in need, using their unique skills.
If you would like to help us, you can see our
