In order to create awareness of the Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act, the affiliated Mark Twain support organizations recently launched a new website in support of The Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act, designed and developed by ForeSite Technologies of East Hartford, CT, a Web Development and IT Services firm.
The new site draws attention to the bill which, if passed would lead to a coin minted in honor of Mark Twain. There are four non-profits currently dedicated to promoting the legacy of Mark Twain including The Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford, CT; The Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum in Hannibal, Missouri; the Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College in Elmira, New York; and The Mark Twain Papers & Project at the Bancroft Library of the University of California, Berkeley. All four of the non-profits would benefit from the proceeds of the coin, which is produced at no cost to tax payers.
The website allows visitors to learn more about the Coin Act to encourage them to contact their state representatives and senators to support the bill. It also includes links to the websites of the four Mark Twain related non-profits to learn more about the history of Mark Twain and the individual organizations.
"The Mark Twain Coin will commemorate the legacy of one of America's most important and influential writers," Executive Director of the Mark Twain House, Jeffrey L. Nichols said. "Yesterday's House action would not have been possible without the hard work of the proposal's two sponsors, Representatives John Larson (D-CT) and Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO). We also want to thank ForeSite Technologies for donating the design and development of marktwaincoin.org which will help spread the word about the importance and impact of the coin bill. I can't thank them enough for their hard work and generosity on our behalf."
The bill has already passed in the House of Representatives, but still needs to be passed by the Senate. If passed in the senate it will then go onto the President of the United States, who needs to sign the bill. If that happens, the coin will be minted in 2016.
"We always enjoy working with the folks from the Mark Twain House," ForeSite's President, Michael Giuffrida said. "They are all so passionate about the history of one of Connecticut's greatest residents. We are honored to be involved."
