With the holidays right around the corner, now’s the time to start buying gifts for your loved ones. Money is tight these days, so gifts where some the proceeds go to a good cause is a great deal. Luckily for you, there are many such gifts that are related to the Vaquita! Let’s take a look.
The CEDO Eco Shop is a wonderful place to buy awesome gifts for the holiday season. From Vaquita t-shirts to booklets, to even a special link to Amazon that gives a portion of any purchase to CEDO, they have it all.
CEDO works extensively with the Vaquita, so it is one of the best charities to donate to.
Another wonderful holiday gift for that special someone would be CEDO wine, complete with one of six creatures of the Gulf on the label (of course including the Vaquita). And a portion of the proceeds goes to CEDO!
The VIVA Vaquita La Tienda has some wonderful Vaquita-specific items, with a new collection by Memuco: http://www.printfection.com/vivavaquita/NEW–memuco-vaquita-items/_s_583346
A perfect gift is the Adopt-a-Vaquita kit from Save the Whales. For $25 you get:
- An 8 x 10 glossy color photograph of a Vaquita in the wild
- Adopt-a-Vaquita certificate personalized to your specifications
- 4 page color newsletter about Vaquita
- A letter to the United Nations for your signature
- Save The Whales window sticker
- VIVA Vaquita window sticker
- A Vaquita dog tag necklace (suitable for all ages and both sexes)
With the second edition of the world’s only Vaquita book coming in the near future, you might want to keep it in mind: https://www.createspace.com/4268018
And my final suggestion is a Save the Vaquita! t-shirt from the Muskwa Club’s campaign, with 100% of the proceeds going to this non-profit. Remember, if 34 t-shirts are not bought, none will not be printed. So please, support a great cause and look stylish while you do it: https://www.booster.com/savethevaquita97
Hi! I’m Daniela from Greenpeace Mexico and I wonder if I could use your digital painting (Link: https://goldenliontamarin.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/vaquita-face-2.png) to make some pieces for our web site. Please contact with me on: email@example.com
See you soon!
Thank you for this insightful and enlightening post. You cite quite a few excellent points. I agree that it would be a huge boon for the Vaquita to have a celebrity “ambassador” championing its cause. Awareness is key and I think that would be the best way to achieve this. Keep fighting the good fight!
Thanks! Celebrities are the best way to get to the people. They look up to them like no one else.
