Fantastic news – thanks to your donations since the Holiday Season we now have the funds in place to build a ‘Globalgiving’ boat.

In months past, we’ve added your gifts to other funds received outside GlobalGiving to build rescue boats. But now, we have the cash in hand to build a dedicated GlobalGiving boat! Funders get to design their boats, so if you’d like your name or business name on the boat, email so we can talk about your request.

This Valentines day, we’re hoping that you’ll help make this the first of many GlobalGiving by giving on February 12th. Why February 12th and not 14th? Because on February 12th, GlobalGiving will match your donation by 30%!

That means that if you give just $10, GlobalGiving will add $3 to your gift. Please give what you can on the 12th.

Thanks so much for all you’ve given, and if you have any questions about our work please don’t hesitate to email

Tell us how the next boat should look!
