The Sunken Bones Society is a not-for-profit organization that promotes and supports historical maritime conservation projects and piratical-themed or related charities. More information can be found at http://www.sunkenbones.com/.
Each year for the past five years, we've put on the biggest Talk Like A Pirate Day party this side of the Spanish Main. Each year, we've gotten bigger and better, and we've grown the convention from one day to the entire weekend.
We can't sail this ship by ourselves; we need crew members to head up committees and volunteers to put on the show for the rest of the port. If you would like to help out (and get a little shiny in the bargain), take a look at the Volunteers Page or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although we can probably credit Robert Lewis Stevinson with our cultural image of the colorful piratical companion, it is undeniable that parrots are as much a part of being a modern pirate as being able to utter a hearty "Yarr!!" In fact, there is little doubt that parrots were considered valuable during the Golden Age of Piracy, if not for pirates' companions, at least as booty to send back to the old country.
The Gabriel Foundation® is a nationally-recognized Denver-area 501(c)(3) avicultural and veterinary affiliated parrot welfare organization providing consistant quality care to over 500 birds that have been relenquished by their owners for various reasons. TGF is licensed by the state of Colorado, and promotes educational outreach, conservation, rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and sanctuary pertaining to the needs of parrots everywhere.
The long-term goal of the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund is to help strengthen coastal communities against future environmental catastrophes such as BP’s Deepwater oil spill. In 2010, SBS collected over $700 for donation to the GNOF.
GNOF launched into action following the Deepwater spill with the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund, which serves as a conduit between the donor community and our nonprofit partners. Through the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund, the GNOF put philanthropic dollars back into the affected communities by making emergency grants to nonprofit organizations that aid victims of the oil spill. They are also working to address the long-term economic, environmental, and cultural effects of the disaster, while simultaneously focusing on strengthening coastal communities against future environmental catastrophes.
We are delighted to partner with businesses and organizations in the Denver area who wish to promote their goods and services by sponsoring BrethrenCon. We offer everything from promotional tables to advertising in the BrethrenCon Program Book in return for your promotional consideration. If you want to advertise at the convention, please take a look at the Sponsorship and Donations page, or contact us at email@example.com.
