I'm running the marathon on my own steam. I'm not obliged to fundraise. However, it does seem a shame to go to that much effort SOLELY for vanity and showing off purposes when there's a great charity like this that needs support.
I went whale watching on my birthday and didn't see a single whale but maybe if I do something for them, they'll be more inclined to come and show off to me in future.
Anyway, on a serious note, whales are amazing but some humans really aren't and the world would be awful without whales, so please help to redress the balance by making a small donation to WDC, thank you xx
