As a travel destination, few places on the planet can compete with the diversity of the National Marine Sanctuary System, which protects America's most iconic natural and cultural marine resources. The majority of national marine sanctuaries' waters are open to compatible recreational activities which also allows for considerable benefits to local economies.
On August 12, 2017, the National Marine Sanctuary System is hosting its third National "Get into Your Sanctuary" celebration. This system-wide event will raise awareness about the value of our marine sanctuaries as iconic destinations for responsible recreation through a series of special activities.
Sage Intacct is thrilled to join in on this exciting event. On Friday, August 11th, you can participate too and help raise money for the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation (www.marinesanctuary.org). Sage Intacct will donate $10 to the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation for each person who posts their favorite photo of the ocean or marine life on social media, along with our special hashtag.
