Hands Across The Sea Delivers 107,194 Books to Schools in the Caribbean!

By: Partners

The American Sailing Association has been partners with Hands Across the Sea for many years. Hands Across the Sea is dedicated to raising the literacy levels of Eastern Caribbean children. Every year we host a Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes to help raise money, and awareness, for this good cause. Last year ASA members helped raise over $44,464!

Hello from the Caribbean!

School principals, teachers, and students are telling us about the excitement and impact of the new books and literacy materials. And they, and all of us at Hands Across the Sea, want to thank you for your caring donation that has made this joy and advancement of child literacy possible.
