My Custom Ink t-shirt campaign closed on Monday night, and I ended up selling 12 shirts. Unfortunately, that was not enough for any profit, so I will not be able to donate anything to ¡Viva Vaquita! at the moment. However, I will be donating 25% of my book’s profits to ¡Viva Vaquita!, which should be a lot of money. If you are interested in my Vaquita book, please stay tuned and follow my blog.
Thanks to Carla Porter for buying a shirt! Today, Monday the 17th, is the last day to buy your very own Save the Vaquita t-shirts, with all profits going to the Vaquita! Please buy one for yourself and your loved ones for this very worthy cause!
You can’t buy your Vaquita t-shirts after Monday! Please buy one for you or a loved one to show your support and to raise funding for the Vaquita!
Here is what the t-shirt looks like (they simplified my drawings’ colors and details for easier printing):
I have been and will continue to be extremely busy for the next few months, due to the publishing of my book, the creation of the VCS, and helping coordinate National Save the Vaquita Day (July 6). I may not be able to post as many things during this time. But believe me, I am going to have a lot of stories to tell when it’s all over.
Friday, May 17 was Endangered Species Day 2013. As a donation to our beautiful world, please buy a Vaquita t-shirt at https://campaign.customink.com/savethevaquita.
To my delight, my campaign is currently featured in the “Trending Campaigns” section of Custom Ink’s home page, https://campaign.customink.com! Help keep it there by purchasing one for only around $25! They also make a great gift. 25% of profits will go to ¡Viva Vaquita!, and the rest will go towards the printing of my book. The book will be featured in at least two aquariums’ gift shops and will be at many tables for National Save the Vaquita Day! Look for further updates on all of these things in the future. If you have not already, follow my blog (look in the right sidebar) to receive all new posts by email, just so you don’t miss anything.
I’ll admit, I got a little teary-eyed after looking at this picture. Please don’t let the Vaquita follow in the footsteps of its unfortunate cousin, the Baiji. You can help by purchasing a t-shirt here: https://campaign.customink.com/savethevaquita.
Using my own artwork, I have created a new Vaquita t-shirt with Custom Ink. Thanks to a comment by Karle from Custom Ink, I have discovered the Campaign feature. It is basically what I thought the Signup Sheet was originally. I have created a campaign, so now anyone in the world can purchase one and get it right to their door. The campaign ends on June 17, 2013 at 11:59 pm, and 100% of profits will go to the Vaquita. Please buy one and tell everyone you know to do the same, so I can reach my goal of 50 shirts sold! Post it on Facebook and Twitter, too! Here is the campaign: https://campaign.customink.com/savethevaquita. Thanks.
