American Sailing Association & Hands Across The Sea
Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes
By putting brand new, amazing, life-changing books into the hands of Caribbean children and creating/rejuvenating lending libraries at their schools, Hands Across the Sea is helping to raise the literacy levels—and the hopes for a better life—of underprivileged children on the islands of Antigua, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Now in its thirteenth year serving Caribbean children, Hands Across the Sea employs a network of program officers, called Hands Literacy Links, to mentor and coach school staff to bolster the sustainability of lending libraries at 873 schools serving kids ages 3-17, and support reading and literacy across the region. Through their library and community programs, Hands Across the Sea has delivered over half-a-million books and opened a world of opportunity for nearly 140,000 children in the Eastern Caribbean.
When you donate to the ASA/Hands Across the Sea Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes*, you are entered to win a week-long charter in the Caribbean courtesy of ASA’s preferred charter company, Dream Yacht Charter. Or you could win a luxurious seven-night stay for four (two rooms) at The Verandah Resort & Spa in Antigua or at the St. James’s Club, Morgan Bay, St. Lucia, courtesy of Elite Island Resorts.
Thank you for supporting literacy for Caribbean children. Like you, we believe that every child should grow up reading!
