Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday…and Giving Tuesday!

Posted by Tall Ships America on November 21, 2014

Black Friday is approaching in all its store-stampeding, child-trampling, gift-grabbing greedy glory. By the time Tuesday rolls around, most of the country has worked off their Thanksgiving gluttony with a daily exercise routine of pushing, shoving, and speed walking down aisles.

Regain some much-needed holiday karma by celebrating #GIVINGTUESDAY with Tall Ships America. By making a donation to our annual appeal, you will be helping us to provide sail training scholarships for youth and to support education under sail. Donations will be met 2 to 1 through December 31, 2014.

Founded in 1973, American Sail Training Association, dba Tall Ships America, is a 501c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to enriching youth education through character building and leadership programs aboard tall ships. It is the hub for tall ships activity, expertise, and information in North America, and is commended by The United States Congress as the national Sail Training organization representing the United States in the international forum.

Tall Ships America supports the people, ships, and programs of sail training through grants, scholarships, conferences, education, publications, public events, and advocacy.

Tall Ships America organizes the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® annual series of tall ships races and maritime port festivals to celebrate our rich maritime heritage and traditions, and inform the general public about the transformative power of adventure and education under sail®.

When you support us, you support our programs, our members, and the important mission of sail training.

Make a difference today!
