Keep sending post cards and letters! It only takes 5 minutes to write out your thoughts, do it for the dolphins!
So this week I received many wonderful letters, postcards, or drawings! Thank you to everyone who took the time to write!!! Keep reading for this week’s prize winners!
Aside from my usual letter campaign updates, this week (Saturday 13th) was the Let Lolita Live worldwide protest! Ten year old Trevor is a local activist trying to free Lolita from the Miami Seaquarium! I posted about his protest a few weeks back, you can learn more about it here.
The protest went well! Everyone was out protesting their cause on the street so it was quite busy in Seattle today! But I know we talked with a few people who will go home and research Lolita, which will hopefully get them involved with her cause! Lolita was captured 41 years ago… it’s about time she retired. No cetacean should ever be held in captivity!
Now I know you guys are looking forward to this week’s contest…
Congratulations Nina B. from Australia! You won the letter #100 contest! Thank you for your envelope full of postcards. You’ve won a small SSCS flag, a bumper sticker…. and because we’ve been waiting so long for this letter to arrive, I’m going to throw in a stone from Taiji’s cove, for you!
This week’s challenge will be a continuation of last weeks! I posted about extending my drawing to next week a couple days ago… so I hope you all went and bought some postcards! Basically all the letters and postcards you send me over this next week will be thrown into a bag, the one I draw will win an awesome prize!
So send me all the postcards/letters that you can possibly write! The more letters and postcards you guys send me… the more chances you have of winning this next week’s drawing! Plus we are getting much closer to our deadline… and I know you all want to make a statement!
Prizes include: 1. A Shell from Taiji’s Cove 2. A Taiji Dolphin wrist band 3. A secret prize (big!)!
But I’m only drawing one winner…… so make sure you send me a ton! So your odds of winning are great!
So pick up some postcards on your way to work, and fill them out on your lunch break!
Get all your friends together and send me an envelope full of letters/drawings!
Tweet it, Facebook it , Youtube it…. haha spread it on whatever social network you’re on!
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.
