BENEFITING: VIRGIN UNITE USA
EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2013
Hi everyone, I want to stop whale poaching because they are my favorite animal. Whale poaching is what some people do to kill whales and eat their meat and whales are becoming extinct.
I have loved whales since I was very little, probably about 3. Since I love whales so much, I have went to places where I could see them. I went to South Africa and saw Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales and we also went to New Zeland and I saw Sperm Whales and a jelly fish too. Sperm Whales are being killed because of a liquid wax that is in their heads. This wax is what lights candles and lighbulbs but I am sure we can find another way to light those things. Whale meat is not good for you anyway.
I am raising money for the Ocean Elders (www.oceanelders.org) which is a program of Virgin Unite. They help people learn about why not to hurt whales and they help the rules change about hurting them. This is good. Whales are very harmless creatures and are very nice and gentle. I don't know why people would do something bad to the whales if they did nothing bad to them. It is sad but it will be better. Thanks for helping me raise money to stop whale poaching- I love you all.
