Will You Give on #GivingTuesday, Dec. 1st?
Support the final day of our 29 Dollars, 29 Days: Getting Kids on the Boat campaign
On Tuesday, December 1st, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving to causes that mean the most to you. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things.
December 1st is also the final day of 29 Dollars, 29 Days: Getting Kids on the Boat, our month-long campaign to raise important funds needed to reach those young people who could otherwise not afford to participate in our life-changing shipboard programs.
Why 29? It’s the cost for one child to participate in an environmental education program aboard Adventuress. On shipboard programs from ports throughout Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands, children and teens learn about our precious marine environment and how their daily actions make a difference for its future. They also experience an extraordinary community of support as they learn about each other and about themselves.
In what sometimes seems like an impossible future for our world… in the words of one teenager who sailed with us this year…
I learned that anything is possible.
We hope you’ll give on Tuesday, December 1st to nonprofits you care about that are working to make our world a better place. And thank you from all of us for your gift to “get kids on the boat” during the 29 Dollars, 29 Days scholarship campaign ending on #GivingTuesday. Your gift of any size means that young people will climb aboard, take the helm of the 102-year-old National Historic Landmark schooner Adventuress, and learn that they can make a difference in our world.
To see a little of what our kids experience on their Adventuress journey, you might take a moment to watch this short film, which was made by 15-year-old student Benjamin on our Fantastic Voyage program this summer. We invite you to slow down, take a deep breath and sail with us for just 5 minutes…
