Thanks to Vineyard Vines and Simon & Schuster, we’re part of the #WhalesForACause campaign. And it revolves around you! To get involved, all you need to do is pick up your favorite art supplies and start coloring! For every whale that’s colored and posted online, these partners will donate a brand new book to a child in need.
Want to let your creativity shine? Color your own whale and post it to Twitter or Instagram with #WhalesForACause! You can download it here.
Here’s how people are getting involved so far:
