Last month we told you about Monique Vernon, a native of Placencia Village who has been accepted to participate in the World Merit 360. Vernon has been fundraising to travel to the Philippines for the biggest and loudest call to action focusing on the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. So far, Vernon has raised about one thousand seven hundred and seventy-seven dollars of the two thousand five hundred and eighteen dollars that she needs in order to make the trip. As part of her journey, Vernon posted a 30 seconds video to inform every one of her Sustainable Development Goals and what she wishes to accomplish at World Merit Philippines.
Vernon works with the Southern Environmental Association and Fragments of Hope which carried out a coral restoration project. If you would like to assist Vernon to get to the Philippines, you can log on to www.worldmerit.org/merit360.com and search for Monique Vernon.
