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! 

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.
