How You Can Help
There are many ways you can help ~ either as an individual or as a company. ALL donations,
Thank you very much.
Could You Or Your Organisation Sponsor At Least ONE Complete Boat?
Our greatest need is corporate sponsorship for as many boats as possible. For each complete boat sponsored by a company, organisation or individual, we will provide you with FREE advertising for your group ~ right there on every boat you sponsor!
When entire boats are sponsored, each boat will be painted and signwritten to the sponsor's requirements, for promotional and publicity purposes, and may be displayed for two weeks, if required, at a location of the sponsor's choosing and at the sponsor's expense, before delivery to East Timor. And each boat is individually numbered for identification purposes.
AND THE BEST NEWS OF ALL ...
EACH BOAT COSTS ONLY $1500 TO COMPLETE ~ FULLY FITTED!
AND YOUR DONATION IS TAX DEDUCTABLE!
What Else Can You Do To Help?
All people and organisations are encouraged to donate in whatever way they can. Below is a list of items immediately needed by the East Timorese peoples. Your generosity would be greatly appreciated.
Many small organisations and individuals may not have the resources to sponsor a complete boat, so we have prepared a list of items that are virtually non-obtainable in East Timor and can be packed inside the boats for delivery. All of the following items are desperately needed for schools, hospitals, orphanages, destitute and struggling families, and single casualties.
This list is only a small representation of everyday items not available to people in East Timor so anything can be considered needed. Please contact:
QUEENSLAND ~ Mike Maskell ~ Phone# 07-38073856
NEW SOUTH WALES ~ Barry and Michele Wicks ~ Phone# 02-66464699
to arrange pickup and/or delivery details.
Please pack items securely and label them 'A.B.E.T. FOR EAST TIMOR ~ List of Contents:' and list the items included in your generous donation.
Can You Make A Monetary Donation?
