BoatUS holiday cards help boaters come home safely

Staff reportsNovember 23, 2013 

— Boaters can get their holiday cards anywhere. But when they buy them from the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water, they help themselves get home safely.

That’s because a portion of each sale goes to programs that count for recreational boaters: a national Kids’ Life Jacket Loaner Program; 33 state-recognized online boating safety courses; low cost EPIRB emergency beacon rentals and a Grassroots Grants program, which to date, has donated over $1.3 million to local groups for boating safety and clean water projects.

Boaters can personalize over 50 holiday card designs – featuring everything from sailboats to powerboats, Santa to Hanukkah. Beach, lighthouse or marina scenes are also available. Notecards are an option, too, which make great stocking stuffers for your favorite crew, fishing buddies or boaters in the family.

Christmas tree ornaments and puzzles also are offered all at

Buyers also get two free gifts with each purchase.

Funded primarily by the half-million members of Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) and a national leader in boating safety, the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water provides innovative educational outreach directly to boaters and anglers with the aim of reducing accidents and fatalities, increasing stewardship of America’s waterways and keeping boating safe for all waterway users.
