Official 2019 Charities: Help St. Barth and Coral Restoration St Barth
For 2019, the entry portion will be donated to Help Saint Barth — St Barth Initiative. It is the official collective of non-profit organizations that the Collectivité de Saint Barthélemy has handpicked to help the island’s continuing recovery in the aftermath of hurricane Irma. This includes reconstruction, victim assistance and helping nature take its course though the ongoing restoration of the island’s beautiful resources.
The Bucket has requested that 50% of the contribution be made to Coral Restoration St Barth — the association engaged in the restoration and repopulation of the damaged marine reef.
Allocation of the other 50% will be at the discretion of the initiative.
Poster sales proceeds will be presented to the Youth Sailing Program at the St Barths Yacht Club. SBYC is an active sailing school and their priority is the youth of St Barths. They offer many programs starting at very early ages. On an island, learning to sail is as important as learning to swim. Over 400 children participate every year. Here the children learn to respect each other and their environment, the sea. They also learn how to be responsible and cooperative in the pursuit of their goals.
SBYC is not a conventional yacht club. Resources and budgets are far more limited than what one would expect to find in a typical club. The Bucket donations make a significant and meaningful difference.
Limited edition posters are available for sale at Space Gallery St Barth. The gallery graciously donates their time and energy handling the sales.
