RAISING THE PHOENIX 11: Donations now welcome!

October 10, 2016

Dear Phoenix Friends,

It's safe to send donations now. Jerry and I opened the Phoenix of Hiroshima Project Inc account on Saturday with our first donation, $500, from Fredy and Sherry Champagne!

Only $76,500 to go.
We have $25,000 coming this week and hope to get the rest (or at least enough for a down payment) ASAP so we can schedule the salvage and evaluate the boat's restorability before her condition deteriorates any further. 

We will be filing the paperwork for tax exempt status this week. There is no doubt we will receive our 501C3 so any donation you make will be tax-deductible. The documentation demonstrating that the Phoenix had a role in history runs 20 pages--including books, articles, films, websites, collections, selected blog entries, newsletters and pictures.

We have a Twitter account, Phoenix of Hiroshima@YachtPhoenix. Hope to be on Facebook soon. And we will figure out a way to donate online.

Wishing all of you God's richest blessings!
Jessica Reynolds Renshaw, PoH Project Inc, Secretary
for Board of Directors Brian Cowden, Chairperson; Jerry Renshaw, Treasurer; John Braxton, former Phoenix crew member, 1967, and
Chuck DeWitt, Restoration Coordinator of Golden Rule, 2010-15.

Checks should be made out to Phoenix of Hiroshima Project. They can be mailed to Jerry Renshaw, 186 E. Cameron Place, Long Beach, CA 90807-3851.
