2 years 3 months ago, I stepped onto Wrightsville Beach as just a mom with a plan... with a goal to help make Wrightsville Beach the first smoke-free beach in North Carolina. I did my first 20 minute beach clean up at Wrightsville Beach picking up 346 cigarette butts. Since then, I've picked up more cigarette butts than I ever imagined possible... and I connected to a community of people who were just as passionate about helping WB become smoke-free. On November 6, my goal became a reality when 65.3% of votes cast by WB residents were FOR a smoke-free beach. I'm so proud and grateful to have been able to contribute my voice to the Smoke-Free WB community movement!
Just think about the possibilities for changing the world we live in for the better... let's get together. Inspire each other, motivate each other to use our talents, actions and our voices together for a common cause.
