What Kind of Change Maker are You?

There are countless ways for each of us to Go Blue! by sharing our individual environmentally friendly "green" practices with our friends and communities.

One quick and easy way you can Go Blue! right now is to spread the word about GiveBIG on Tuesday, May 3 and help us reach our $15,000 fundraising goal. Your gift supports our mission and programs, and thanks to a group of amazing local donors, any contribution you make will be matched dollar-for-dollar!


Looking for other ways to Go Blue? Take this 7-question quiz at Story of Stuff to find out what kind of change-maker you are. Then visit our exhibits to see what sorts of changes you can help make towards a healthier ocean in your local community!

When I interviewed Amy yesterday, she decided that she was a Communicator:

"I think I'm a Communicator. I like being creative with the way I tell stories: whether with photography, art, or dance, I love figuring out how to connect all our volunteers with our different programs!"

Communicators use creativity to share knowledge, remind people how we're all
connected, and spread news and ideas to other changemakers.
When I went through the exhibit myself, I realized that I'm also a communicator!

Find out whether you're a Communicator, Builder, Resister, Networker, Nurturer, or Investigator to help inform the sorts of Go Blue! actions you can take to help your community be more sustainable!

These volunteers might very well be "Nurturers," providing support and care,
having a source of strength so large that it can be shared with others when they need it,
and always being ready, able and willing to help. Like when a seal shows up downtown!
Did you take the quiz? Please let us know in the comments what kind of change-maker you are!

And remember, even sharing this post is a Go Blue! action!

Next Tuesday, May 3, the Port Townsend Marine Science Center is trying to raise $15,000 for our mission and programs through GiveBIG, a one-day, online charitable giving event hosted by the Seattle Foundation, but we can't do it without your help! Thanks to a challenge match from a group of local donors, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar before being stretched even further by the Seattle Foundation! Schedule your gift today!
