Charitable Donations

Our health is intimately tied to that of our planet, and donating to charities and emerging businesses that conserve, protect, and improve the quality of our oceans and beaches and the creatures that live in them has been part of our business plan from day one.


Beachside Community Acupuncture may be located in landlocked Dallas, Texas, but the coast and sea will always be in our heart. Every quarter we choose a nonprofit that focuses on marine "health" or a new company with a product designed to mitigate ocean waste and donate 10% of our profits to their cause. Read about whom we've supported below - more information can be found on their linked websites - and consider giving to them as well! 

Seahorse Hawaii Foundation

The seahorse is facing extinction from overfishing for the pet and medicine trades and habitat destruction, but the Seahorse Hawaii Foundation promotes the conservation, education, research, and propagation of this unique creature through its facilities and displays at Ocean Rider Seahorse Ranch in Hawaii. 

Coral Restoration Foundation

The largest coral reef restoration organization in the world, the Coral Restoration Foundation was founded in response to the widespread decline in coral reefs in the Florida Keys. CRF aims to restore the genetic diversity of wild coral populations by growing a variety of species in nurseries and returning tens of thousands of corals back to the ocean each year.


With the mission of "seek[ing] to make our oceans as rich, healthy, and abundant as they once were," Oceana is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Their offices around the world work together to make oceans more bio-diverse by winning policy victories in the countries that govern much of the world's marine life, sharing the photographs, studies, and experiences that they bring before policymakers with the public to raise awareness at the grassroots level as well.

Gumbo Limbo

Located in Kathleen's hometown of Boca Raton, Florida, Gumbo Limobo has been integral in the protection and rehabilitation of sea turtles and other marine wildlife in South Florida since the 1970's. Additionally, the Gumbo Limbo facility serves as a museum with exhibits on conservation for school field trips and the public alike and sponsors scholarships for students who intend to study marine biology.

Ocean Conservancy

Ocean Conservancy is a 501(c)3 nonprofit working to protect the ocean from today's greatest global challenges. With initiatives like their International Coastal Cleanup, Ocean Conservancy removes more than 20 million pounds of trash from beaches and waterways each year to pursue their vision of a healthy ocean free of debris. They also fund oceanographic research, lobby for marine health in Congress, and work internationally for maritime regulations.
