Echo Morgan, the author of “Scuba Matt’s Underwater Adventure,” has donated some of the proceeds from her book to support Diveheart’s Military Wounded (DMW) program.
The move honors Morgans’ late son Matt, a US Army veteran who passed away in Okinawa in 2022.
Matt Morgan was a keen scuba diver and highly qualified professional holding the rank of master instructor. The DMW program aims to use scuba diving to build confidence and independence and empower military veterans who have been wounded.
Commenting about the donation, Diveheart founder Jim Elliot stated:
“We are honored to be selected as the charity of choice for Echo’s book memorial for her son. Those proceeds will give some of our veterans an opportunity to experience the benefits of scuba therapy and help them make friendships with like-minded people who are also experiencing similar situations. We are presenting Echo through book signing events to introduce her to our Diveheart family and friends.”
While Morgan stated:
“I truly think and hope that working with Diveheart would make my son Matt so proud to know that his love and passion for diving and the military continues in his name. We are a family of avid scuba divers and proud military supporters and I think working with Diveheart is a perfect fit for giving back — in my son’s name — to both of those communities.”
