ISLA Hosts Fundraiser in Long Beach to Benefit Lifeguard Training Initiatives in Dominican Republic and Nicaragua0
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., March 13, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — On Wed., March 14 and Thurs., March 15, 2012, International Surf Lifesaving Association (ISLA) will be hosting a special fundraiser at the Original Roadhouse Grill in Long Beach, located at 7391 Carson St. The purpose of the fundraiser is to raise critical funds and awareness for ISLA’s training initiatives in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua later this month.
Founded in 2008, ISLA’s mission is to reduce the number of drownings worldwide by building a culture of water safety. Comprised of volunteer lifeguards, the organization provides training, medical supplies, disaster relief, and emergency personnel to beach communities around the world.
In November 2011, ISLA traveled to the Dominican Republic to train volunteers from various agencies within the country in lifesaving and lifeguarding techniques. As part of the initiative, ISLA conducted an intensive three-day Ocean Lifeguarding Training, which included a First Aid and CPR practical exam, physical instruction, written test, and non-buoy and buoy rescue practical exam. Twenty-nine lifeguard trainees completed the rigorous training course and received Basic ISLA Lifeguard Certification, the first professional lifeguard certification in the Dominican Republic now required for a lifeguard to become certified.
Two ISLA volunteer lifeguards will return to the Dominican Republic in late March to continue the second phase and to begin the third phase of its initiative to create permanent lifeguard agencies that guard the public and private beaches of the country.
In late March, fourteen ISLA volunteer will also conduct the first phase of its Ocean Lifeguarding Training in Nicaragua.
Thanks to local hotels and other agencies, courses and accommodations are provided to participants and ISLA instructors at no cost.
“We are excited to promote a sustainable culture of water safety in both Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic with our Ocean Lifeguard Training,” said ISLA President Henry Reyes. “We look forward to serving both communities and are confident that these courses will have a positive impact.”

Newest Addition Added to Bonne Foi Anti-Aging Line is Lab Tested and Manufactured in Southern California0
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Feb. 22, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Bonne Foi Beauty Products, an anti-aging skin care line, today, releases its Nourishing Face Cream which will further enhance the Bonne Foi line.
Created primarily for night time use, the Nourishing Face Cream will nourish, rejuvenate and moisturize your face, firming your skin and improving its overall appearance. Those with particularly dry skin or those who live in very cold climates may wish to use it as a day cream as well.
Its main ingredients include white shea butter, beeswax and seaweed extract. In clinical trials, shea butter was found to moisturize the outer layer of skin, protect against climate and UV aggressions, and prevent wrinkle formations. The seaweed extract, found in many of our products, is what helps firm skin, restore elasticity, and improves the complexion providing a more youthful skin tone.
Bonne Foi’s Nourishing Face Cream does not contain any petroleum by-products or mineral oil as these ingredients can clog pores, suffocate skin, and cause premature aging.
The chemist that formulated the Nourishing Face Cream had been developing anti-aging products for more than a decade when he began developing the Bonne Foi line of products. The formula is based on the theory developed by Dr. Peter Agre, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2003 for his ground-breaking discovery of aquaporins which is used in the Bonne Foi product line. Aquaporins allow anti-aging and nourishing ingredients to penetrate skin down to the cell level.
Bonne Foi anti-aging skin care products are specially formulated to work for people of all ethnicities and on a wide variety of skin types and tones. This Nourishing Face Cream completes our night-time skin care regimen.
