Read Lily's letter below:

Hi Friend,

I am Lily, and I'm on a mission to save my favorite animal, the octopus, and protect the ocean! I recently found out about a proposed Octopus farm in the Canary Islands, and I think it's really cruel to these amazing creatures.

Last year, I swam 5km and raised €2,000 for GOSH children's hospital in London. Now, I'm organizing a swimming fundraiser in Algarve to raise money for Compassion in World Farming, who are working to stop the octopus farm.

I'm so excited to make a difference and I would love for you to join me!

All the money you and I raise on our personal pages will be donated to Compassion in World Farming!

Let's stop this farm and save the octopus from harm!
