The Sandlappers

Upon visiting South Carolina, in 1791, George Washington is said to have called the people living on the sands near the river shores Sandlappers. This word conjures images of the waves gently lapping repetitively onto the banks of our beaches, creeks and rivers. It is a symbol of the continual flow onto our shores and seems fitting to title our generous group of recurring monthly donors, The Sandlappers, which reflects their reliable monthly contributions. This monthly gift can be any amount with which you are comfortable, but it can often allow you to increase your giving from previous years by donating smaller amounts each month over the course of a year. Monthly giving can easily be setup by clicking the Donate button at the top of the page.
