THE STORY:

Hello everyone! I'm here to help raise money for 2 reasons. One is to help Peggy Oki out with travel expenses to get her to the 2012 Skateboarding Hall of Fame ceremony, where she will be inducted this year!!!! The second reason for this fundraiser, is to donate what ever money that is left over after travel expenses to the Origami Whale Project which Peggy has dedicated her life to. Although we only need to raise about 300 more dollars for the travel expenses, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to do some good for the whales and our next "hall of famer" :)

About the Origami Whales Project:
Since 2004, the Origami Whales Project (OWP) has worked to raise awareness concerning threats to cetaceans (dolphins and whales) through its stunning and memorable "Curtain of 36,000 Origami Whales." Created by thousands of concerned citizens across the globe and exhibited throughout the world, this large-scale public art project serves as a powerful visual statement and memorial for the thousands of individual whales killed since the 1986 ban on commercial whaling. As urgent need for cetacean rights activities arise, the Origami Whales Project has expanded with additional outreach and education programs, creating "Curtains" of origami dolphins and whales in United States, Japan, Dominica, and New Zealand.
