TargetOnlineMarketing.com' main man has launched the Global Kiter Foundation earlier this year - www.globalkiter.com - with Sandrine & Charles Werner.
For the second year in a row, Christophe BERNIGAUD organised in partnership with Google a beach clean up @ his local beach: the Meath Gold Coast. See the report below taken from the Global Kiter Foundation blog:
" It was an early start for the Global Kiter Foundation as we teamed up with Google staff to clean up Bettystown and Mornington beach, Co. Meath, Ireland. We are very proud that the first GKF event went so well!
Google’s Sylvain told us: "Seeing all the trash spread out over the beach was mind boggling. I'm glad I was able to give a hand and clean this up a bit…”
Global Kiter Foundation and Google Serve working together on Bettystown Beach, Ireland
On Monday June 13th, 18 dedicated members from Google HQ (Dublin) joined GKF's Regional Officer for Ireland, Christophe Bernigaud, to clean up the beautiful Bettystown/Mornington beach.
We could not have done it without Meath County Council and their representative Mr. Peter Brady, who supplied all the cleanup equipment on the day.
The weather played its part too - the sun was out and the clouds stayed away, making it a wonderful event for everyone involved.
The morning kicked off with an introduction to the Global Kiter Foundation, our mission and goals. After the introduction and tips for cleanup, the team began to work. By lunchtime, there were already 21 bags of rubbish collected, along with a bicycle, rusty mattress and all sorts of discarded fishing equipment.
The local BT Bistro was kind enough to accommodate the team for their lunch, after which they collected another 22 bags of rubbish, a barrel and even dug out a huge plastic road barrier from the Mornington sand dunes.
It was an educational, worthwhile and fun day for all who took part. Big thanks from the Global Kiter Foundation to Google and their team of hard workers and to Meath County Council. We look forward to more local events soon!
Ana from Google said: “I felt priviliged to take part in such an initiative and was actually really dissapointed that the day had to come to an end. Would be great to use these initiaves to raise awareness in the community, especially amongst young people…”
GKF gives everyone a chance to get involved and to give back to their local environment and community by supporting local environmental action. Contact GKF to find out how you can get involved too!
