WinTogether kicks off ocean cleanup campaign

WinTogether, a charitable sweepstakes platform powered by Lottery.com, has launched the Clean Oceans Campaign aimed at ridding the oceans of ghost nets and toxic plastics. 

As disclosed, the campaign will benefit the work of the Ocean Voyages Institute (OVI), which aims to lead one of the largest ocean plastics clean-up efforts of its kind in history. 

Mary Crowley, Founder and Executive Director of Ocean Voyages Institute, emphasized the importance of having all hands on deck to support OVI’s efforts. “We’re grateful to have the support of WinTogether and like-minded people and organizations from around the world supporting the urgent needs of ocean cleanups and conservation.”

What is more, WinTogether hopes to remove more than 1 million pounds of ocean plastics from the notorious Great Pacific Garbage Patch through their partnership with OVI.

The campaign is also a part of WinTogether effort to support organizations positively impacting the world, including Dollar Donation Club, the grassroots movement and catalyst of the Clean Oceans Campaign. 

The campaign will start on 15 June and end on 31 August 2021. In the meantime, WinTogether will offer weekly prizes to participants, including a $50,000 cash prize to the Grand Prize winner, sponsored by Lottery.com. 

The announcement comes on the heels of World Oceans Day, a day and cause aimed at collaborative conservation of the ocean across the planet.
