It's easy to clean up...

My boyfriend, loves to surf cast at night, stopping at each jetty to cast a couple dozens of times, hoping to "lure" a striped bass or blue fish.  One night, he's casting away and i'm trailing behind, enjoying the beauty of the Long Beach ocean and sky, walking thru the water but there's garbage everywhere.  Joe, gives me a plastic bag that he keeps with him, to hold the "keeper bass" he wants to haul in and I begin picking up garbage.  The first night, I picked up 2 bags of garbage; plastic cups, bottles, fast food containers, bags, balloons, diapers, feminine hygiene applicators (YUCK) etc.  I've been garbage picking while he fishes, I feel as if i'm doing something.  A little boy came up to me with an empty can and one of those awful plastic rings that holds a 6 pack, he wanted to help, as did his parents.  Another night a couple stopped to tell me they just picked up a bag of garbage.  My friend, Lorna, is picking up on the East End of Long Beach.  Hopefully, cleaning up our beaches will trickle up and more people will help out and clean up.

Keep an extra plastic bag with you, whether at the beach or the park, I'm sure you will find some cans, bottles etc to pickup.  It's easy being clean.

Thank you in advance for helping !!!

It's June

Long Beach High School Academic Awards Night was a huge success. 

Rebuild the Beach, asked our candidates to write an essay about what they feel needs attention in our community.  The selected essays, initially were not my first choice but after rereading them along with 20 + other essays, we selected 2 for our annual scholarship.  Both essays were personal, honest and caring.  

One student wrote about the need to help our veterans.  She was opening up about her grandfather and expressing how necessary it is that our community, society & world needs to assist what's in front of us.  We all know it's easier to look away but it's time that we cease looking away and starting looking and helping.

The other selected essay was about the highs and lows of social media.  As we all know, there can be a tremendous amount of abuse in the Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat arena.  I was impressed at how candid this student was and how ahead of her years she is with wanting to express the importance of using the arenas for positive things, building people up, not bringing them down.

What I've learned from both students and their essays is we all need to be kinder and more helpful.  Reach out, get involved, help others that are less fortunate.  Think about what you are doing and the ramifications.  

Sending peace and light for a beautiful June!!!

Thank You LBHS Seniors!

Submission for the 2016 Rebuild the Beach Scholarship has ended.  We would like to thank all students who applied for the scholarship.  The winners will be announced at senior award night on June 2, 2016.

We received a record breaking amount of submissions for the 2016 scholarship. All submissions were outstanding, making it extremely difficult to choose 2 winners. The process of choosing the winners includes our committee diligently reading each submission.  Each member chooses 2 of their favorite submissions.  Each member of the committee will advocate for the papers of their choosing.  Once all members come to a unanimous decision, the Long Beach High School Guidance Department is notified of the winner's ID number.  At the end of the process, the committee members are notified of the winner's name. 
Those interested in the 2017 Rebuild the Beach Scholarship; please check back for more information in December.

Happy & Healthy 2016

Rebuild the Beach, wants to thank you all for another wonderful year and we are looking forward to 2016 with new designs & apparel.  It's hard to grasp that one design, (the hammer logo), inspired from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, 10/29/2012, has become such a large clothing and accessory line.  

We have donated thru out 2015, to wonderful organizations, charities & scholarships and will continue in 2016.

A big thanks to all my roadies, family and friends that help with the glamorous job of setting up, breaking down, loading & unloading the car, for all the weekend events.

Thank you Ocean Ride Cycling Studio, http://oceanridecycling.com/   for letting us use your beautiful studio as our home base.

See you in 2016, have a happy & healthy one!!!

Best,

Liz & Geoff

Established November 2012

Rebuild the Beach was established by Geoffrey Noss in November of 2012.  After Hurricane Sandy, Geoffrey created the hammer logo to imprint on Tshirts & Sweatshirts.  He wanted to raise money for the Long Beach School District and families that were displaced and lost their homes after the storm.  The Rebuild the Beach clothing and accessory line has continued to grow thru the years and we continue to donate to different charities each month.  Share the love & buy..
