THE STORY:

Go to https://sites.google.com/site/pullupstosave to get more information. For most of my life I have been fortunate enough to not have any big problems impact me. However, I see the world changing and whether you believe it or not climate change is a problem. I am one to believe in Laissez-Faire, but something has to change. We need to do something different with our effect on the oceans. I am a certified scuba diver who started at the age of nine. I proudly own a saltwater fishtank. Other than showing that I am spoiled, it shows a passion of mine. Even before I could swim well, I had a fascination in sharks which I still hold today. I could and want to go into the cruelty of of shark finning, but I must withhold myself because this is about all of the ocean including orcas which kill sharks. As global warming occurs along with pollution our oceans are changing. I have seen the lionfish epidemic in the Carribean. If we don't change something, the world with force us to change something. For example, we may not be able to go to the beach because of constant shark attacks due to a lack of seals for sharks to eat. What happened to all the seals? They were killed from strangling in our plastic waste. I will take my other hobby, crossfit and try and raise money with it to help save our oceans. I will do 1,800 pull ups by September 16th. I hope that you will consider giving at least one cent per pull up. But I ask that you do not donate because you know me, but you donate because of the fish. I hope they will still be able to use their pectoral fins to swim before I leave this Earth otherwise I will know that I failed in my only job which everyone else shares with me, to help our planet one way or another.
