Dear SS United States Conservancy Supporters:
As you know, the Conservancy launched its groundbreaking Save the
United States campaign this week. Congratulations to everyone who
already visited Savetheunitedstates.org and purchased and
personalized their parts of America's Flagship. Please share a link
to savetheunitedstates.org or your piece of the ship with at least
five people so that we can keep building our community of new
supporters. Square inches are available for only $1! Use this
campaign as a fresh way to approach your family, friends and
colleagues about the plight and potential of the SS United States.
Share word of your purchase via Facebook, Twitter and email. You can
also share links to the "explore your ship" fun facts located in
various spots around the vessel.
Those of you who have not yet begun exploring the exciting new site,
the time is now!
We've received a terrific early burst of media coverage about the
campaign, and we expect more stories in the coming days and weeks.

worldwide. A small sampling includes the Minneapolis's Star Tribune,
Yahoo News, MSNBC, the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, CNBC.Com,
the Seattle Times, Huffington Post, US News and World Report, and the
Washington Post, among hundreds of others. (To view any of the
