Welcome back or thank you for visiting the birthday project for the first time.
Same as every year, we invite you to celebrate Eoin’s birthday in a charitable way. Based on his social media, you know the climate change, deforestation, animal extinction, … is something that concerns him. So after some digging, 4Ocean came to mind. They are a global movement actively removing trash from the ocean and coastlines while inspiring individuals to work together for cleaner oceans by selling bracelets made from 100% recycled materials, “buy a bracelet, pull a pound”.
They gave the idea to have recycled tote bags printed with the awesome picture, turned into a drawing, of Eoin taken by the professional photographer Gerry Balfe Smythe, one of his best friends. A little step using less plastic bags as I’m sure you’ll be more than happy to carry it with you all the time. They are currently in the making and will hopefully be up soon. More information to follow.
But then 4Ocean lead to WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation, the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins, for a world where every whale & dolphin is safe and free and found out you can adopt a whale, orca or dolphin. As it’s hard to choose because you want to save them all … choice was based on their discription:
“Mischief is amazingly agile for such a big dolphin. He is very friendly and always seems to be in a party mood! He’s also a powerful hunter who can outrun even the biggest salmon.”
“Very friendly and always in a party mood”. Remind you of someone?
So the tote bag idea stayed, the charity changed. All profits will go to WDC, adopting the dolphin Mischief in Eoin’s name. Hopefully you like the idea. Hopefully you’ll join us in this adventure.

Thank you for taking the time.
