Dune Jewelry's Holly Daniels Christensen for Surfrider and Joslin Diabetes Center

Name:  Holly Daniels Christensen
What is your job? 
I am the Founder and creator of Dune Jewelry, the Original Beach Sand Jewelry Co®.  
Dune is a keepsake, collectible jewelry line handmade in Boston, Massachusetts using beach sand from thousands of locations worldwide spanning all 7 continents.  We celebrate travel and adventure by creating tangible reminders of those special moments.  Each piece of jewelry is handmade and custom made to order using the customer's choice of beach sand.  To see the Dune collections and for more information visit www.dunejewelry.com.
What social causes are most important to you? Keeping our beaches clean and healthy is very important to me.  It is my opinion that we all have a responsibility to respect our coastline and keep it clean not only for our own enjoyment but especially for the vast amount of sea life that lives in our oceans.   I am also extremely passionate about finding a cure for diabetes, specifically Type 1 Diabetes, because I lost my Dad to diabetes complications at a very young age

Extreme Adoption: Gus Kenworthy and the Sochi Pups


Your name and Job? Gus Kenworthy - I am a professional skier. I compete in slopestyle, halfpipe and big air. This year I took home the silver medal in the debut freeskiing event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. 

What social causes are most important to you?
 I'm a big supporter of gay rights. People really bother me. I've never understood why people are opposed to gay marriage; to me it's less a gay rights issue as much as it is a human rights issue.
