Save Tangier Island

$5,510 of $1.5M goal

Raised by 101 people in 16 months
The purpose of this Fundraiser is to raise much needed monies to have 550 copies of the Documentary, "Pieces of Tangier" by Jenny Roberts, printed and distributed to all members of our Federal Government (435 members of House and 100 Senate members along with President Trump, Vice President Pence, etc). The members of the government will receive a letter detailing Tangier's history, its current situation and detailing the help that is needed to save our Island home from the erosion that is taking us away, piece by piece and day by day. If Tangier's future is going to be secured, we need to get to work today! Also to be funded by this fund will be the packing materials and the freight costs of shipping 550 packets to the officials. 

CNN put out a story on Tangier last weekend that didn't accurately tell our story. We want to move on the momentum that we have and get the "real" story out to the people that will decide our funding of future solutions, some of which could cost millions of dollars. Please share this campaign with all of your friends and family that love Tangier as much as I do. Thanks for your support. Stay tuned for updates along the way. 

Please keep Tangier in your thoughts and prayers. God has a plan for Tangier and we all need to unite together in prayer for this plan to be revealed and to come to pass. 

Together, we can "Save Tangier"

Thank you so very much for all of your generous support! We far exceeded the first goal! The DVD's are in production and we are currently working on how we are going to get them disbursed to the members of our government. All plans of action to accomplish this are being studied and discussed at this time. I'll update when I have the answer to that question as our original plan won't work. I am raising the goal of this campaign as has been requested due to the increased media coverage and interest in our project. Our project will now expand to help raise monies to fund jetty projects in the future, esp projects that are "shovel ready" such as the breakwaters that have been proposed for the area to our north called "Uppards". The town didn't have the required funds to advance that project forward but maybe if we can raise the town's share, it can move along! This area provides protection to our north and to our navigation channel. A breach in this area would be devastating to our island and esp our economy! Thanks for your continued support in "Saving Tangier"!

Can't help but feel so badly to see people lose their town as you are. I realize you could move, but today we have so many technologies to keep us alive (why not just let us die, but no...we use technology - it brings hope and a few more years). We don't have to go around a mountain, we can go through it because of technology. It can all cost a lost of money. Our country wastes SO much money on foolishness, why not save a town where people work and provide a great, safe place to visit and live vs no go dangerous cities which we pour lots of money into because of the crime. We pray for restoration of those cities where crime is also. No room here to give away awards for wasted tax payer money. Surely our government can save a beautiful town such as yours. We pray God will give you your miracle.

And, should we have let nature takes it's course in New Orleans after Katherine? When a tornado cuts through Kansas, are we expected to accept it as "God's" work and just abandon the land? Let forest fires run their course? So, Jonnie, get over yourself. You're just not that important.

Hi, you say that God has a plan for Tangier. I see that Tangier has already lost 67% of its land since 1850. https://www.nature.com/articles/srep17890 It seems to me that God's plan for the island is very obvious, and that he has given everyone on the island at least 167 years of forewarning. But if it hasn't already become apparent to you, I will refer you to Matthew chapter 7:24-27. God has already spoken. Will you listen?
