When it comes to celebrating people that are going over and beyond, we are always first in line, in full cheer mode. So when we heard about what Sarah Ferguson is planning on doing to raise awareness around pollution, we wanted to dedicate our Appreciation Monday post to her. 

Ferguson isn't just a retired South African national swimmer and Guinness World Record holder, her portfolio extends to physiotherapy, motivational speaking, and she is also involved in many projects that both uplift and create awareness. 

When it comes to going all the way, we can firmly say that Ferguson is the epitome of this, as she lives her passion wholly and is truly an inspiration, as a woman, an entrepreneur, an athlete, and most definitely as a South African. 

She has now taken on her biggest yet challenge, a 1,500km swim along the coast from Durban to Cape Town, in aid of raising awareness around ocean pollution. 

"As the driving force behind conservation platform Breathe Conservation, Ferguson is focused on raising public awareness about the devastating impact plastic pollution in oceans and rivers is having on our planet," reports IOL.

We can all do our bit to help Sarah accomplish her mission, in fact it should be a mission that we all undertake. If everyone makes a small change then we will see a big difference, it's like that saying, many hands make light work. 

So let's go for it! We love the ocean so let's take care of it.
