June 25, 2014 is the Day of the Seafarer

The Day of the Seafarer is held every year on June 25. We have many seafarers at Marine Atlantic; they are the people without whom food, clothes, gifts, gadgets or even basic needs would not reach our doors. We rely on them every day.

This year, we are once again joining with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to show our appreciation to Seafarers by participating in their social media campaign. This year the IMO is asking the public to tell them what seafarers have brought them, and to thank seafarers for doing so.

Join in the campaign and complete the sentence:

Seafarers brought me:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           


…think of something you own and for which you wish to thank a seafarer. If you can, provide a photo or video of it and post it on one of IMO’s social media sites using the hash tag #thankyouseafarer
