The Perfect World Foundation launches the new campaign “Save The Ocean” on the island Bohus Malmön on the Swedish west coast on the second of August. Durring the evening there will be entertainment by a number of artists, including one of the most famous Swedish singers Martin Stenmarck. There will be a art auction with art Julian Lennon, Christn Björk, and maybe more, held by the Swedish comedian Jan Rippe.
