Sponsors of a new Hawaiian documentary, titled "Save the Reef," seeks to re-imagine how philanthropy works in today's social media era.
The documentary was made possible by Karmagawa, a charity community formerly known as the Timothy Sykes Foundation.
Save the Reef highlighted the degradation of coral reefs across the world. Co-founders Timothy Sykes, an entrepreneur and stock trader, and Philippine-born artist Mat Abad said Karmagawa is all about mobilizing people to change the world.
Before the documentary was released, an Instagram account ― @savethereef ― was launched to generate interest, support, and engagement for the project. The account is just one of the many projects around the world sponsored by Karmagawa.
Karmagawa started in 2015 and is a success story, like funding the construction of 51 schools in Bali, Guatemala, Cambodia, Ghana, Laos and Nepal – with an end goal of 1,000.
