Thanks to the support of thousands of people around the world we have been able to purchase the boat and have now commenced renovations and conversion work.
Please see new photos of the boat and the work underway here (http://www.gazaark.org/2013/06/05/gazas-ark-photo-album/).
Please help us now, so we can prepare Gaza's Ark to sail as soon as possible!
Please contact: email@example.com to place your bids specifying the number of the dress with minimum increments of $10.
Once a traditional craft practiced by village women, Palestinian cross-stitch embroidery has become an important symbol of Palestinian culture. Embroidered pieces can be found in the homes of most Palestinian families in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Israel and the Diaspora beyond, adorning the walls of houses in Jerusalem, villas in the Gulf, and cement block houses in refugee camps.
The popularity of embroidery springs from both its beauty and its association with the Palestine of the past. Common patterns reflect the millennia-long history of the foreign occupations and date as far back as the Canaanites, who lived in the area over three thousand years ago.
Gaza’s Ark is a project supporting Palestinians to rebuild a boat in Gaza, which will carry Palestinian products out to the world. With your support, Gaza's Ark will challenge the unjust blockade of civilians in Gaza. With your support, Palestinians will achieve their right to live with dignity.
We're very close to making an announcement about our boat! Meanwhile, we've made a video telling the story of how Gaza's Ark will challenge the blockade and show that global public opinion hasn't forgotten the struggle for Palestinian rights. It's just five minutes long, but we hope you'll agree it's very powerful. Please watch our video here and share with your networks.

We chose 3 co-winners.
We would like to thank all the singers and songwriters who submitted songs. We were delighted by the variety in style, lyrics and instrumentation, ranging from solo voice to trumpet introduction!
The winners – in alphabetical order – are listed below but before you listen to any of them we hope you would contribute to Gaza's Ark here (http://www.gazaark.org/donate) even as little as you would pay for a commercial song download.
As we state in our Mission Statement
Building a boat is very complex and has many different components. We have now purchased a fishing boat in Gaza and we have initiated works to refurbish it for sailing on the high seas.
We have made a down payment on the boat and we still need to raise the rest of the money to complete the payment and the rebuilding work.
We need your help now in the completion of Gaza's Ark.
This is how you can do it:
When we receive your contribution we will e-mail you (or mail by post if you prefer) a “Gaza – A share in Hope” symbolic certificate with your name on it and the value that you have donated.
This will make a perfect gift from you. While purchasing the shares give us instructions to put the name of your dear one on the certificate.
If you contribute $1,000 (Canadian) or more, your name can appear on a plaque placed on Gaza’s Ark unless you choose to remain anonymous.
With your help in the past , now and in the coming months, Gaza's Ark will sail in 2013. Please consider a donation and encourage others to as well, and watch for an upcoming confirmation of our purchase of our boat in the port of Gaza.
You are invited to support Palestine by taking part in our 2013 Sponsored Diet! to benefit Gaza’s Ark .
Israel restricts the amount of food going in to Gaza, a ruthless and deliberate policy whereby the dietary needs of the Gazan people are chillingly calculated to keep the population alive at a near starvation level. An Israeli minister joked that they were ‘putting the Palestinians on a diet’. Members of the international community are invited to join in a diet voluntarily, to show solidarity with the people of Gaza, and to raise funds for Gaza’s Ark
