Many adventurous anglers that visit Christmas Island quickly find out the experience is much deeper than simply an incredible flats fishing destination. By the end of trip, many experience close personal bonds with the people they meet and become interested in their way of life. Christmas Islanders by nature are some of the most endearing, warm, patient and hardy people you will ever encounter. Famous for their ability to make you feel right at home in a wild and remote corner of the Pacific, it’s rare when we have visiting anglers return without being sincerely touched.

One such concerned angler is Michael Day who has taken it upon himself to use his resources as President of the Sparks Rotary to make a difference in the lives of Christmas Islanders by assisting in bringing medical equipment to the island’s clinic. Mike has been working diligently through the Rotary and with Pacific Island Medical Aid to meet the funding goal by raising money online and through the Rotary.

If you would like to assist in helping Mike reach this goal and would like to read more about the efforts underway to bring supplies and medical equipment to the island’s hospital please visit the Giving Trail site below. Any donations made through the Giving Trail website, a 501c3 corporation, will be recorded and reported by the site and any necessary accounting forms will be provided for your donation.
