Plimoth Plantation is issuing a challenge -
Can we find 1 million people who care about saving Mayflower II by 2020?
The year 2020 is the landmark 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Mayflower in the New World, and Plimoth Plantation is planning for Mayflower II's full restoration process to be complete by this date.
YOU can give a gift in any amount and be listed as a virtual passenger on the Mayflower II.
At this website you can check back daily and see who else has joined you on board:
The Virtual Passenger List http://www.plimoth.org/please-support/save-our-ship/virtual-passenger-list
Everyone who donates will be automatically added to the Virtual Passenger List, and entered to win one of three amazing Exclusive History Experiences as a prize.
