Community & Non-Profit
About Your Company
I'm an avid boater and fisherman, and live in southwestern Connecticut. We are fortunate in that we get out on our boat quite a bit during the spring, summer and fall seasons. My young daughters and I are starting a non-profit with the aim of providing lower income children and teens from nearby towns with exposure to Long Island Sound, and the opportunity to learn about this amazing resource that is right in their 'backyard'. Long Island Sound is our 'ocean', and has a great variety of fish and marine life. We will partner with Stamford and Norwalk Ct Boys and Girls Clubs so that we can take approximately 5 youngsters and 1-2 of their club's chaperones out every Saturday for about 90 minutes. We will provide education about the Sound, bring up (and release) fish, eels, crabs, sand, shells, show live video of the bottom, and teach them about all these things.
I need a GREAT name for this organization! I thought "Sound Citizens", which is decent, but not a no-brainer! I don't want it to include 'Long Island' in the name (despite the body of water) simply bc we are in Connecticut. Other than that, I'm quite open minded about possibilities!
Local families, those interested in the outdoors, marine life, educated, not educated, etc.
Not relevant this is a charity
Likable and altruistic; outdoor education focused, but perhaps even witty

Good cause; interesting; "I'd want my kids to get involved with that!"
