ORGANIZER: Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project, Inc.
Nearly 5 years ago my life changed when I unknowingly stumbled on the documentary The Cove. I watched in horror as 20,000 dolphins were brutally murdered off the coast of Taiji Japan. My heart bled for the dolphin and my passion to save th and fight for their rights was set on fire. This massacre happens every year as dolphins are not protected in international waters. These dolphins are not only murdered brutally after Seaworld and other exhibits take their pick but then their meat is sold to the Japanese people even though it contains very high levels of mercury. The lack of awareness all over the word breaks my heart and I vowed to make a difference. This is my first fundraiser for the cause and I pray I will reach my goal and spread awareness. We as humans have the capability to stop this cruleness and protect our sea life. If I reach my goal I will jump out of a plane wearing a dolphin costume and I'll film the entire thing!! I know it would be one funny site to see. With Giving Tuesday quickly approaching please find a place in your heart to donate anything you can spare. Dolphins are more emotionally advanced than any other animal and they deserve to be protected. Please help me help them.
