Thank you Dave and the Living Like a Pirate team!!!

AMAZING!

As you know I have been in contact with Dave over at www.livinglikeapirate.com and he has been very interested in the Amistad and our mission. Through email correspondence I gave him info about us and the trip, he expressed interest and offered to send me some "booty" a.k.a. a t-shirt and stickers and a coozie for my beer and some temporary tattoos for me and the crew. Too cool. Then he told me he was going to send shirts and stuff for the crew too! Today I got both packages and to my surprise...
WOW! LOOK AT ALL THAT BOOTY!

On top of the goods was a letter in an envelope...
It read:

Jolea,

Thank you for giving me a way to be a small part of the history of the Schooner Amistad. Enclosed is a small check to help & lots of LLAP gear. I hope you & your crewmates enjoy them as you embark of this adventure.

Have a great time & please keep me posted so I can follow your historical cruise.

Good Sailing!

Dave Ladage


How awesome! So I looked in the envelope again only to find a not-so-small check! WHOA NELLY!!!! All I can say is THANK YOU. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! It's people like Dave that keep these non-profit corporations going through the tough times.

I'm sure I speak for all the members of Amistad America when I say how much your donation is appreciated.

THREE CHEERS FOR CAPTAIN DAVE!!!
