Week 3 ending, week 4 beginning!

Hey all!

So this week I announced that we have a total of 60 cards!!! This is very exciting, however we only have 4 more weeks now! I’m hoping we can triple that number in the next month!

Thank you for your support and for sending in your postcards/letters for the Dolphins in Taiji! See below for this week’s contest winners!

Below is a video I filmed in the middle of last week:

Remember why we are doing this! The dolphin slaughter in Taiji is the most horrific sight I have ever seen. Thousands upon thousands of dolphins have lost their lives in Taiji, Japan. Dolphins and Whales are some of the most intelligent species on this planet. They are self aware, they have families that they travel with life long, they nurse their young, and they have learned to understand us… but we cannot understand them. I could go on and on.

The slaughter of dolphins happens all over Japan, not only Taiji. Taiji is known because of the 2009 movie, The Cove. We feel if we can stop the slaughter in Taiji that the laws will change all over Japan. Then we can move on to help dolphins being slaughtered elsewhere in the world. You have to start somewhere… and like Ric O’Barry said, “If we can’t end it here, in this one little Cove, there is no hope”.

Please send a postcard to: PO Box 853 Edmonds, WA 98020-0853 USA , and urge Japan to stop killing dolphins! For more information about this campaign see this link here.

So! Now for this weeks contest info: 

So this week we have 2 contests!

1. Since I did not receive letter #100 this last week that challenge will carry on into this week. The person who sends me letter #100 will win an autographed SSCS flag (small) and a SSCS bumper sticker.

2. All the postcards/letters I receive this week, I will throw into a bag and the one I pull out will win a shell from Taiji’s cove and a secret prize! So make sure if you’d like the chance to win you put your return address on them! Send in those cards!!!!

So who won this week!? 

Well the answer is Rachel S. and Michelle J.

Rachel won the giant SSCS flag, autographed, for her package of letters and drawings! All the letters were written by girls ages 13-15! So congratulations Rachel! Your prize is already in the mail.

Michelle won my international postcard challenge. I threw all my international postcards/letters (out of the USA) into a bag and I pulled out a postcard from Canada, written by Michelle! She won a copy of “The next Eco Warriors” written by Emily Hunter!

Swim Far, Swim Fast, Swim Deep,
