Give Back

If you're looking for a worthy cause to support on Giving Tuesday, check out these two nautical organizations.

Hands Across the Sea

Harriet Linskey

By now, you may have heard of Giving Tuesday-- a movement to encourage people to give to charities and worthy causes in the aftermath of the biggest shopping weekend of the year. Today's the day, and if you're looking for a way to give back and would like to help kids both at home and in the places we cruise, then check out these two organizations.

Hands Across the Sea
Hands Across the Sea is an organization founded by cruisers Harriet and Tom Linskey to promote childhood literacy throughout the Caribbean. Each year, they ship thousands of new, donated books and supplies to island schools and then head down on their catamaran, also called Hands Across the Sea, to assist schools with projects.

Beautiful Nation Project
Beautiful Nation is an online education project designed to encourage young people, ages 6-18, to develop deep connections with our earth and with each other. The project tracks the Voyage of Makulu, a 43 foot sailing vessel on an around-the-world circumnavigation, in order to foster a sense of wonder and enthusiasm for exploration among youth.
