Daedra has designed a glass straw with a whale on it to support Save the Whales, a non-profit based in California doing good around the world! This straw is special because it reminds our family of an experience we shared a few years ago.
Living in Michigan, we are not guaranteed to ever come in contact with whales in the wild, but we were fortunate to spend a week in Cape Cod a few summers ago and do some whale watching in the Atlantic Ocean. I highly recommend it!
That’s Daedra and the boys (I’m of course taking the photo) before we left the dock. The main photo up above of a whale diving (I think it was a humpback) is the only photo that I timed right.
It was thrilling just to be out on the ocean, miles from shore, and be among the wind and the silence and the peace. And then all-of-a-sudden, these large animals (usually a mother with baby) would be right there in front of us. We saw five sets of whales coming up for air, waving hello, and then diving back down. They were probably just as curious of us as we were of them. What a special moment with nature!
This family memory has us appreciate the Save the Whales organization for the mission they are on. Join us in support of saving the whales. $7 from the sale of each Save the Whales straw will go to the Save the Whales organization to do just that!
Leave us a comment for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to our online store. The winner will be randomly selected and notified by email on Friday, April 28th. You could use it to buy your very own whale straw!
