Virgin Atlantic Caribbean Sail Adventure
Why we need your help
Virgin Adventurers will be raising money for Free The Children in Haiti, in another charity adventure following our model of 'have fun, do good'.
Our Sailing Challenge will bring together Virgin staff, family and friends in a charity sailing race around the British Virgin Islands. The challenge of living on boats, learning to sail and work as acrew with many sailing for the first time, and then race will make this a memorable adventure.
We're asking all participants to fundraise for Free The Children's projects in Haiti.
Beautiful and haunting, Haiti was already labeled the poorest country in the western hemisphere before the massive 2010 earthquake that devastated the small Caribbean nation.The UN estimates that the more than 80 percent of Haitians living in extreme poverty—those who earn less than $1.25 a day—live in rural areas. They struggle to grow enough food to feed their families, and are plagued by deadly waterborne illnesses. It may take decades to rebuild Haiti, but with a focus on health and education, and by improvinghousehold and community livelihoods, we are determined to provide long term, sustainable support.
Please support our sailors as they fundraise with 100% of your donations going straight to FTC projects!A bit more on what Free The Children are doing in Haiti can be found using the following link:http://www.freethechildren.com/what-we-do/where-we-work/haiti/
