Divers Alert Network® (DAN®) has set up a web page to accept donations for families who lost loved ones in the Conception tragedy. Thirty-four divers lost their lives when the vessel caught fire in California’s Channel Islands on September 2.
To donate, visit DAN.org/TheConception.
One hundred percent of the donations will be given to the victims’ families. The funds collected will be distributed equally among the families of the victims. Families who lost more than one member will receive a share for each. Donations are tax-deductible.
PADI, SSI, TDI/SDI, Scubapro, DUI, the Women Divers Hall of Fame, PSI-PCI and California Diving News have all joined in the effort to support the families affected by this tragedy.
