The NSBC supports boating safety partners like the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. Here is one story showing the difference your contribution can make.

Jackson, an 8-year-old boy who participated in a U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary swim lesson, became exceedingly animated when he told the following story:

"I was fishing on a dock one day. No life jacket. I caught a fish! Only I did not know I was afraid of fish! I was not sure what to do and jumped back and fell into the water! I was so scared and could only see so much dark, blue, black, yucky. I could not see how to go. I could not find my way out. My daddy jumped in and saved me."

"I like trying on life jackets and will always wear one when I go fishing or go in a boat. I want everyone in my family to wear one. Thank you for teaching me."

Together, we can reach girls and boys like Jackson to make boating safer for everyone!
