The Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association (Grand Bahama) is a dedicated non-profit voluntary organization committed to saving the lives of distressed seamen or airmen in the Bahamas. They are supported only by private donations and therefore require your support through their fundraising projects. Aside from the costs of their daily operations and rescue efforts, they are seeking to purchase modern lifesaving equipment like defibrillators. In addition, they are looking to the future where they can have a permanent waterfront base of operations with their own building, on Grand Bahama.

Get Your Ad/Photo on the BASRA Calendar and Support a Vital Service
- May 5, 2008 - 3:43:58 PM
The BASRA (Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association) Grand Bahama calendar began in 2002 as an annual fundraiser to assist with the operating costs of BASRA Grand Bahama – a vital non-profit community service. The calendar quickly became a community effort supported not only by local businesses who participated by placing ads, but also by families choosing to help. The family component of the calendar is most popular as children liked seeing their photos printed on their birth date or whatever the special occasion might be.
With the rising cost of operating BASRA, just one rescue alone can cost thousands of dollars, so you can see how quickly their revenues can be depleted annually. This calendar generates enough money for BASRA to continue to do their job and protect us all. Click to see Calendar SAMPLES and learn more...
