Help

I had one of the greatest conversations over the weekend. I had met Tina Karl in Los Angeles in November at the Braveheart Women event. We hit it off immediately. We have had several conversations and they are always so much fun!

So we have been talking about how Tina could help with the fund raising for the school and we have decided to focus on the two Treasure Dive Trips.

We will need to focus on getting sponsors and lists of divers for the events. We’ve scheduled the first one for June. The weather will be fairly mild in Belize then and a great time for vacations for those from the United States.

The idea is to create an event with about 500 divers and their partners to spend ten days in Belize. There will be parties and events the entire time to help make the divers more familiar with the amazing diving opportunities off the island of San Pedro and all around the barrier reef.

There will be a hunt for a $10,000 treasure that will be hidden. The divers will be given clues throughout the week and will have several prizes awarded.

We are looking forward to doing at least two dive trips every year and will be able to raise enough funds to pay for the teachers salaries.

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like on finally on the right path.
