Reef2Reefers, gather 'round! This is your chance to win a $1,000 gift card! However, the real prize is that everyone wins here by discovering the amazing work that The Reef Institute is doing for education, research, and coral conservation/reef restoration!
One of our winners from Reef2Reef's Christmas Toy Drive has graciously donated their prize (a $1,000 gift card to SBB Corals) in order to sponsor this amazing giveaway. Their only request was that we use this giveaway as an opportunity to introduce you all to The Reef Institute and make sure you are aware of the great work they're doing to give back to the ocean reefs we love so much!
