ACMF Giving Tuesday

Dear Friends,

At this most challenging time in the Caribbean, especially following devastating hurricanes of 2017, the region needs a hand-up. More than ever before, we need to ensure that there are educational opportunity to empower folks to be able to help themselves, and ways to sustain Caribbean economies.

And, education is the best way to a promising and sustainable future. 

That's why we are reaching out asking you to support our end-of-year drive by participating in #GivingTuesday (November 28th), a global day dedicated to giving.  Your support helps us provide scholarships for students preparing to work on ships, not only as hospitality support, but as engineers and captains.

Join the drive and help us meet our #GivingTuesday goal of $5,000!
