THE BEACH PROJECT (TBP) campaign began in 2019 when Chris Kemp designed a t-shirt that bore the TBP name. Since then, the product offering has grown in quantity, styles, and sales. Whenever a TBP item is sold, we set aside 20% of the sale and present a check to a local nonprofit at the end of each year. Although the nonprofit we select changes from year to year, our mission remains the same: to fervently protect our water, marine life, and beaches.
Since its inception, TBP's annual gift has continued to increase. This is thanks to supporters like you.
In 2021, we presented the Charleston Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation with a check for $6,000. And, in 2022, TBP sales increased to where we were able to donate $7,500 to Charleston Waterkeeper. Our hope is that our upward momentum continues, and another organization will receive an even larger donation in 2023. If you are a part of or know of an environmental nonprofit that you feel should be considered for our next donation, please let us know!
