Sapelo Island's Historic Hog Hammock Community Property Tax Fund ›

This is not strictly Charleston-related, but those who care and are interested in Charleston’s own Gullah people and culture will care about that of Sapelo Island as well. This is a worthy cause, a chance to do real good in fighting an economic injustice while helping save a vanishing culture. I know times are hard and there’s not much extra to give, but consider giving a few bucks at least. And if you are well off or know those who are, then maybe this would be a good idea for, shall we say, a moral investment.
