THE STORY:

Ocean Awareness Week (OAW) is an annual event held at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. Our mission is to spread awareness on campus and in South Florida about pressing ocean conservation issues. 2016's Ocean Awareness Week will be held April 4th - 10th. The theme of the year is "Seas the Day: seven seas, one world, our responsibility".

Go to (and Like!) OAW's Facebook page for more information and the week's schedule of events.

We will be donating all profits from the week to Beneath the Waves, a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded by UM alumnus Dr. Austin Gallagher. Beneath the Waves, Inc. is a global platform that raises awareness regarding critical marine issues, fosters the advancement of science, and promotes the protection of our oceans. You can learn more about Beneath the Waves, participate in its international film festival, support the non-profit directly and more at beneaththewaves.org.

**Update (4/18/16):  The raffle has CLOSED and winners have been drawn.  We are still accepting donations of goodwill though!**

In order to raise funds for our campus events and Beneath the Waves, we have a variety of awesome prizes, and by donating on this page you receive tickets in your name! You could win prizes from Shake Shack, Chipotle, Pura Vida Bracelets, and more! See our Facebook page for prize updates and the winning names.
