Can you give some money to save the whales? I raised a lot of money to save the sharks at my dad’s office, and I thought I’d try to raise 1000 Euros for the whales. So far it’s going pretty good. Can you help me make 1000 Euros to save the whales? Doon Fitzgerald’s whale donation page
We’ve trying our first experiment in online peer-to-peer fundraising for Greenpeace International over at the Great Whale Trail website. It’s been in soft launch so far, and Doon and I set up a page for him. Hey presto, he was in the “top fundraisers” list with just 30 Euros. Good for him (And thanks, Jen, for starting him off!!!). Hopefully, the days when you can be in the top fundraisers list with 30 Euros will be over when we put our first appeal out to our list this week.
Doon’s goal is to make 1000 Euros. My goal is to see him knock my pal (and Great Whale Trail project leader) Lisa Vickers out of the top spot. Not that we’re competitive or anything…
Post Script: Dylan, my youngest, was sitting in my lap while I was writing this and peppering me with questions about Doony’s web page. “Time for daddy to go to work” says I. “Why?” asked Dylan. “I gotta go save the whales” says I. But Dylan didn’t find that a good enough excuse: “But DOONY’s gonna do dat!”
