Rotarians are helping in a BIG WAY!
Our goal is to educate children with a fun and simple message:
TO STAY AWAY FROM WATER UNLESS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.
“Josh the Baby Otter” was created to help children comprehend and remember this important message. Ultimately, we want to create a water safety behavior for all children that will be passed on from generation to generation.
We have already distributed several thousand copies of the book to daycares, preschools, and kindergarten classrooms across the country. With ongoing support, we will continue our efforts to incorporate this life saving message into every educational curriculum in the United States and beyond. We believe the book; “Josh the Baby Otter” has and will continue to save countless children’s lives.
We are GRATEFUL for our volunteers!
"We started the program two and a half years ago with one student,” Merritt said.
Now, nearly 100 children are enrolled in the one-on-one classes.
We THANK all of our amazing supporters across the U.S. and worldwide! Because of YOU over 1 million children have heard the life-saving message of water safety with Josh the Otter!
From the coast of eastern Florida to the shores of Hawaii, the message of Josh the Otter is spreading with the help of Rotary International!
