It's been a year!!!!!!
One Bag. Each Time.
OMG! It's been a year since I started Camille's Cause! I'm so happy. :) AND it's beach season!! I know that I am for sure going to the beach as many times I can! And if you're going to the beach don't forget to send in your pictures so I can post them on instagram, Facebook, and on here! Thank you to every single person who has done their part to help save the turtles! They appreciate it and so do I. I'm so happy that Camille's Cause has spread so far, and thank you to those who told others about my Cause! It is dearly appreciated! Have an AMAZING summer! #summer2014! It's gonna be a blast.
Camille's Cause Cleans the pond
On April 5, we cleaned the pond by my house again. We removed several bags of trash. My friends are amazing and I am so happy they want to help me make a difference!
Mom and Dad Clean up Puerto Rico
Off to NICARAGUA
So a couple months ago, my dad left to leave to Nicaragua with hundreds of school supplies for schools there. I love the way my dad supports Giving More with his friend Oscar. They have cleaned up beaches for Camille's cause many times and I am so happy! I am so excited that he and his friends were able to put smiles on so many peoples faces. They even saw a female turtle lay her eggs!
I will try to post the video
For the love of turtles!
Happy new year!
Hello turtle lovers! Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. Happy New Year's and Merry Christmas! We are close to getting the pond and we had are first clean up a while ago. Recently my school had a toy/school supplies drive for my dad to bring with him to Nicaragua and give to schools in need, we got SOOOO many bags of school supplies and baby clothes and everything! I can't wait to be able to go with my dad next year. It will be a lot of fun to see all of those smiling faces! For Christmas I also got a scuba diving livaboard, a scuba livaboard is where you go on a boat for a week or so and go on around 25 scuba dives and in between each dive we eat, relax, and fill out our log in books. It will be so much fun getting to scuba diving with sea turtles! I will definitely take pictures of the sea turtles and other sea creatures! I can't wait to go! See you next time my turtles!
make way for the water way!
Camille's Cause is going to be adopting a water way near my house! Me and some friends are going to go down by the water way and clean it up 4 or more times a year. My mom came up with the suggestion and I totally wanted t do it, it sounded like a lot of fun. So I will soon be emailing the city of Allen abut Camille's Cause! Also my mom and I are going to start making cloth bags that have a Camille's Cause logo on them that way you can use them to pick up trash. Then you don't have to use up so much plastic that won't decompose for a long time and it will help keep your plastic bags out of the ocean.
My dad and his friends pepared to go on a mission trip on Thursday night. They are going to Nicaragua in February so they can give people free medical care. He and Oscar have to prepare for all of the people they are going to take care of. I hope they take Camille's Cause to Nicaragua!
Have a great week!
For the Love of Turtles-

Spread the word!
So today was My first day of 5th gRade and it was ok. we just started organizinG and stuff. we had a project wHere we had to bring objects from home and share them With the class. i brought a picture of a turtle and told them about Camille's cause. It's that easy to spread the word to other people!
I alsO got my ears pierced and a can't wait to get turtle eARRINGS! When i get them I will post A Pic of them on Instagram AND FACE BOOK. I know school is starting and evErything, so I might not get As many pictures for the website from kids but adults out there, iF u go on vacation without your kids you can always take pictures of just you! it doesn't have to be a picture oF the whole family. Thanks for all of your help!
I am so happy I got to go to Florida this summer. If there is one thing I can say is that the Beaches of South Walton are absolutely amazing. One of the first things I noticed is how clean it is! So many people clean up after themselves. It makes me so happy. I swear, I must have been a mermaid in my former life. I feel so at home near the ocean.
I am an official SCUBA DIVER!!! I am so happy in the water. I was hoping I would get to see a sea turtle when I was on my first dive at the Destin Jetty but I didn't What I DID get to do was actually pick up some trash from the bottom of the sea, It made me happy to do it but sad because it was there. I talked to a dive master who is on the Turtle Watch in Destin and he told me that the number of nests were down this year. I asked him what caused this and he said that last year they had over 100 nests and so it would be 2-3 years before those turtles come back.
I don't know when I'm going to get to go back to the beach. My Aunt Phi is going in September and my parents are going in October. I will be in school and so I am not invited. :-(
So since I can't really participate in Camille's Cause for a while, please remember to help me out when you go. Just email me your pics of you picking up the trash and tell me where you are. I can't wait to show the world what we are all doing!
I love turtles! See you soon!
