Last year I decided to raise money for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS) by having a party with my friends and getting them to give me money for all kinds of things. I put on a showing of the movie "Deep Blue" by the makers of the Blue Planet series, provided food and drinks, offered tarot card readings and games with prizes and in return my friends gave me their hard earned cash. I ended up raising over $200 and for an evening filled with fun and friends I felt it was an incredibly easy way to raise money for saving whales.

I'm going to do it again this year and have just sent off for my free Save The Whale Week party pack. If you're interested in partying for whales, check out the WDCS "Save The Whale Week" website for more details.
