As of 30-March-2018 we are at $5,605 toward our goal of $25,000.
We met with the Charleston Coastal Anglers club last night and had a presentation by Waddell Mariculture, showing what they do and how they will use the money. Did you know that their operating budget only covers 9 months of operation? The rest is dependent upon donations and grants.
The CCA had a vote and they decided to help our cause and we can’t wait to see what they come up with. Some of the things we heard were very exciting.
We also have had a number of companies donate in-kind, through products. We are trying to decide how to go about setting up a raffle or silent auction for them.
Lastly, Vapor Apparel approached us about wanting to help. We decided to create a Project ReSpeck performance shirt with the logo on front. They will be available in 2 or 3 weeks and 100% of the proceeds will go to the fund! Big thanks to Vapor Apparel!
We still have our special Project ReSpeck jigs for sale on our store for a $20 donation. 100% of your donation goes straight to the fund, so if you donate $20, then $20 is donated. We give you the jigs for free.
You guys are getting there. Can’t wait to order one of the shirts. Very cool to see all of the orgs and companies getting involved.
