A wonderful organization.
Kronos pulled out the stops by printing the Bowling Green Park street scape on cloth. A Fearless Girl resin was positioned in front of the street scape and the scene was hidden from view until after the speeches. It was a thrill to reveal the sculpture. Kristen Visbal posed with nearly every attendee for a photo. Essentially, Kronos brought Wall Street to their empowerment conference.

CLEANING UP OUR OCEANS
Above center: CEO, Daniel Birnbaum discusses strategy in waste removal with Twitter influencer Stefanie Michaels, “Adventure Girl”
We all share a responsibility to care for our Earth. Fearless Girl, in part, stands for our general well-being. SodaStream’s CEO Daniel Birnbaum invented a device he called the “Holy Turtle”. Using the plastic strips used to clean the oil spill in the Gulf region of the United States, the rubber strips have been penetrated with holes and strung between two boats to sweep large masses of floating trash from the ocean. The holes allow the water and marine life to pass through but, the trash is sifted out. Dedicated to clearing the seas’ debris, the organization invited 400 “influencers” in October 2018 to join in collecting waste from the mangroves of Roatán. “The Plastic Fighters” armed with hats, long sleeved T’s, knee high rubber boots and rubber gloves boated to the mangroves and concentrated on wading through the shallow water collecting trash. The amount of waste was mind boggling. The short trip included an educational lecture on the impact of pollution in our waters and the resulting micro plastics that have infiltrated water and food supply.
Invited to the event as an influencer, Fearless Girl Artist Kristen Visbal proferred a short speech where the 400 attendees assumed the Fearless Girl pose.
