Walk in the Sand

Donate to the Journey

Hi, I’m Patti Jewel and I am on a mission to walk in the sand of every beach in the world starting in Florida. This journey is about raising awareness for the beauty and the need to protect our beaches and the wildlife that inhabit them. And it’s about uniting people by showcasing the communities and people who live, work and visit each beach town and sharing the cultures.
