Anybody can make a difference . . . if we can, you can too.
Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) March 28, 2016
Marstel-Day will host Olivia and Carter Ries, founders of One More Generation (OMG), as part of Marstel-Day's #StandwithWildlife campaign on April 6 at 12 p.m. EDT at the company's Fredericksburg, VA, office. The public is invited to attend the April 6 event in person at 513 Prince Edward Street, Fredericksburg, VA, or to watch via livestream which will be available on the company's website the day of the event.
The non-profit OMG educates children and adults about animal conservation and environmental education, and promotes youth empowerment. Olivia and Carter were 7 and 8 years old, respectively, when they started their non-profit organization in 2009.
Olivia and Carter's achievements include developing a Plastics Curriculum to teach children aged 5 to 12 years old about plastic and recycling, spearheading an orangutan letter writing campaign to spread awareness about the plight of orangutans in Indonesia, creating a Sea Turtle Campaign designed to save over 50,000 sea turtles each year, and co-hosting a virtual field trip as part of Discovery Education's "Racing Extinction's #StartWith1Thing" campaign. Their number one message is, "Anybody can make a difference . . . if we can, you can too."
In addition to the talk that is being hosted at Marstel-Day's Fredericksburg office, OMG will bring its plastics and recycling presentations to local schools. Programs will be held at Courtland High School (April 5), Riverbend High School (April 5 at 10:20 a.m.), Stafford Junction (April 6), and Hugh Mercer Elementary School (April 7 at 1 p.m.)
The school programs will focus on plastics pollution, increasing awareness about recycling, and endangered species conservation. These programs will reach more than 600 students, but are not open to the public. The public can, however, watch the livestream of the presentations delivered at Riverbend High School and Hugh Mercer Elementary School's afternoon program.
