In our modern world, focusing on protecting the environment is more important now than ever. At NIXY Sports, we love the environment – every lake, ocean, river, and habitat that’s home to millions of beautiful creatures deserves our attention and care.
To make an impact right here right now, the NIXY team has been working to support charities in our local communities that focus on educating children about our environment. These organizations teach children about our oceans and show them the amazing wildlife that calls our local Southern California waters their home.
Some of the local charities we currently support include:
AmbLeMa, Giving Back, and Local Community Support
Growing up in Venezuela, Ale & Nicolas (NIXY Sports founders) had a strong desire to give back to children in their home community.
By directly supporting AmbLeMa in Venezuela, an organization dedicated to helping teachers in vulnerable rural and urban communities, Ale & Nicolas have been able to contribute to the three focus areas of AmbLeMa: Reading, Mathematics, and the Environment.
Surfrider is a community of everyday people who passionately protect our playground – the ocean, waves, and beaches that provide us so much enjoyment. Newport Beach Chapter was established in 1999.
Standup for the Cure's (SUFTC) mission is to build a compassionate community engaged in raising funds and awareness to fight breast cancer through events and programs that celebrate a healthy lifestyle. Since 2012, Standup for the Cure has been providing free breast cancer screenings while uniting paddlers, fitness enthusiasts, yoga practitioners, medical professionals and the breast cancer community from California to Florida and Michigan to Washington in an effort to save lives.
The Pacific Marine Mammal Center rescues, rehabilitates and releases marine mammals, and in doing so they contribute to ocean science and conservation. Their actions are guided by science. From their work they distill data, samples, expertise and access to animals in a way that is useful for staff and collaborating scientists.
The Ocean Institute is nationally known for its award winning, hands-on marine science, environmental education and maritime history programs. Students, families and the general public become tall ship sailors, research scientists, oceanographers, and explorers while immersed in Ocean Institute programs.
