I love animals. My dream is to have a farm with dogs and cats and goats and chickens and any other critter Shaun lets me keep. I also a huge sucker for sea creatures. Shaun and I have been members of the Mystic Aquarium for years and last year I jumped into the North Atlantic Ocean in January in support of Mystic’s Animal Rescue Program and was able to raise over $1000. The Animal Rescue Program specializes in care for the rehabilitation of animals from Connecticut, Rhode Island and Fishers Island, New York with the ultimate goal of releasing them back into their natural habitat. To date the Aquarium and Rescue Program have responded to more than 1,100 stranded seals, whales, dolphins, porpoises and sea turtles (there’s nothing like watching the videos of seals being release back into the wild).
I’ll be jumping again in 2015 and in order to raise funds and awareness for Mystic Aquarium and the Seal Splash I’m giving away a great prize pack that includes a $100 gift card to Zingermans, compression socks from Coeur Sports, arm warmers from Oiselle, Primal Sport Mud, one pound of Skratch Labs, a Sonic Endurance visor and a Hank Orange headband. The seals and I really appreciate any donation you can make (and don’t have to make to a donation to enter the raffle)
