G.I.V.E. Day 2012

G.I.V.E. Day was this past Saturday! Months of preparations finally came together and it was an unbelievable day. Over 1,600 people came out to a historic high school in Overtown to help complete our beautifying project. By the afternoon, over 10,000 plants were in the ground and over 800 gallons of paint were on the walls. Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International employees came out in record numbers and worked with students and administrators of the school, vendors, suppliers, City Year students and volunteers and even some cruise passengers to paint and landscape.

All the plants were set in place and just needed to be put in the ground and covered in mulch.

Even an early morning downpour didn't slow anyone down...

Everyone had so much was a fantastic day.
One more event next week!
