On Wednesday, September 28, Hurricane Ian wreaked havoc in southwest Florida devastating communities and the places we as anglers strive to protect. Thanksfully, our friends at Costa Sunglasses started the #OneCoast campaign, with a mission "to bring relief to the increasing number of communities impacted by hurricanes, flooding, and sea level rise each year." Here are some ways you can help Hurricane Ian relief and recovery efforts. 

Contribute to Captains for Clean Water: Hurricane Ian Relief Fund on the front lines.

Our friends at Captains for Clean Water have been boots on the ground from the get-go. Despite the loss of the CFCW office and many members’ homes, these captains and guides have been working around the clock–navigating the waters for rescue missions, setting up drop-off locations in eastern Florida, and getting locals the supplies they need.

Donate to WARF (Worldwide Anglers Relief Fund) to support local captains, guides, crews & outfitters.

Professional, recreational angling is often the cornerstone of coastal economies, and the ability for these small businesses to get back on their feet after natural disasters like Ian, is critical. The IGFA (International Game Fish Association) and Costa created WARF in 2017 to provide financial aid to local charter captains, guides, and outfitters in the wake of major natural disasters. To date, the WARF has distributed a total of $225,000 to recreational angling associations. Learn more here.

Place a bid or host an auction using #FliesforIan on Instagram.

What started as one Instagram auction by Josh Mills to raise funds for those impacted by Hurricane Ian, #FliesforIan has quickly gained momentum across the industry with auctions for guided trips, fishing gear and more. Already raising close to $50,000 in just five days, all proceeds from #FliesforIan auction will directly benefit IGFA + Costa’s WARF fund. Visit Mills’ Instagram page, @millsfly to get involved.

Purchase Costa’s #OneCoast apparel, with 100% of proceeds going directly to relief efforts.

Established by Costa Sunglasses in 2017, after Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria ravaged our coasts, #OneCoast continues to provide relief to those affected by natural disasters through the purchase of OneCoast apparel, direct donations and volunteering. Shop the collection here.

Spread the word by posting and sharing on your social channels.
