Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) received on September 24, 2019 a donation from P.I.E. Printing to the 2020 Arts and Tides Calendar.

Mr. James Da-Chuan Ku, general manager, presented the check of $1,000 on behalf of P.I.E., and remarked on both the importance of the calendar, and the quality of the artwork presented in it every year. This will be P.I.E.’s first time donating to the calendar.

The Arts and Tides Calendar is an annual art contest for all grade levels and schools in Palau, and each year it has a different theme meant to help educate the youth about the environment. The theme for the 2020 Calendar is “Our ocean wealth extends from coral reefs to the deep blue and beyond.” Every year, companies, groups, and individuals are invited to donate, and the money goes towards printing and distributing the calendar for that year. The 2020 Calendar is scheduled for publication and distribution next month.

PICRC would like to thank Mr. Ku and P.I.E. for their generous donation, as their investment does not only go towards the Arts and Tides Calendar, but also, towards the environmental education and awareness of the children of Palau.(PR)
