An American woman is celebrating her birthday by swimming around Bermuda to raise funds for prisoners to be able to perform Shakespearean plays.

Sarah Eismann is doing the 37-mile swim as one of several fundraisers for the cause she believes in., Shakespeare Behind Bars.

So far she has raised $3,187 of her $10,000 goal on her GoFundMe Page. In helping raise awareness about her swim she posted on that page “I am going to swim with the sharks to raise awareness and funds for Shakespeare Behind Bars!!

“Using exclusively the works of William Shakespeare, Shakespeare Behind Bars offers theatrical encounters with personal and social issues to incarcerated and post-incarcerated adults and juveniles, allowing them to develop life skills that will ensure their successful reintegration into society.”
