Support Rebuild of Research Vessel Heraclitus for Xmas

View this email in your browser

Dear Friend of the R/V Heraclitus,

Happy Solstice!

This letter reaches you because you have been a crew member of the research vessel Heraclitus, have visited the ship somewhere or are a friend - or the friend of a friend of a friend of the Heraclitus…

Many of you may be aware of our great efforts to restore the sailing ship Heraclitus, and yes, we have been rebuilding the old lady in Roses, Spain for the past 5 years with a big crew of volunteers and professionals. We have just inserted the last tie-wires into the new steel structure and are getting ready to cement and seal the hull in April. The black lady now winters in her cocoon of 'Roses', waiting to be born again in the Mediterranean spring.

A keen crew is preparing a new expedition to sail to West Africa, South America and the Caribbean with the aim to document coastal cultures and record their invaluable knowledge of the oceans.

To continue our fine endeavor we need to gather more funds and for that, we have created a crowdfunding campaign. Please consider giving a gift to our shipbuilding project to keeping the voyage going going going and never gone….every donation, no matter what amount will make a significant contribution to this crowfunding campaign.

If you wish to give Christmas cheer

And bestow upon us a happy new year.

Then it's never too late

For you to donate

to our marvelous, magic campaign...


Thank you for supporting the new Heraclitus and her future expeditions!

(By the way, if you are a resident and taxpayer of the UK you can claim gift aid, that's an extra 25% of the donation for our rebuild project. You'd have to donate directly to us on our homepage. You will receive the same perks and will be acknowledged in a special update on the crowdfunding, unless you'd like to stay anonymous.)
