Since our little Charlotte was born six years ago, we have used and loved Munchkin products. From their wipes warmer to their wonderful bathtub cup, they always seem to take real families into consideration. Their products are affordable, long-lasting, practical and meet the needs of their customers, which is why we’re so proud to be partnering with Munchkin to support their efforts to help with The Whale Sanctuary Project.
This post is part of a sponsored collaboration with Munchkin and Project Orca. The goal for this post is not to make us money, but to raise awareness to this wonderful cause that our family cares deeply about. All opinions are honest and our own.
The team at Munchkin are bringing that same drive and determination that goes into making their products to a cause that is near and dear to their hearts: Project Orca. After 10 years of making a Toy Orca Whale, they’ve decided to put their principles before their profits and have removed the top-selling toy from their Sea Squirt lineup, because a bathtub isn’t big enough for an orca. As a response to the harmful practice of keeping orcas in captivity, a practice still in effect today, Munchkin has decided to kick-start a donation of $1,000,000 to develop the first sea side orca sanctuary in the United States via Project Orca.
About Project Orca
Last year, Munchkin donated $200,000 to begin the search for a suitable location for a seaside sanctuary where retired whales can live in an environment that’s as close as possible to life in the wild. This year, Munchkin has pledged a $300,000 matching donation to The Whale Sanctuary Project.
CEO Steven Dunn says he wants to encourage as many people as possible to join this pioneering effort to create the first-ever coastal sanctuary for whales and dolphins who are retired from captivity. “We’re delighted and very grateful to have the help of Munchkin,” said Lori Marino, President of The Whale Sanctuary Project. “Now it’s time for all of us who want to see these magnificent animals free from life in a concrete tank to help match this generous donation.”
Please join this effort today. Your donation, large or small, will be worth twice as much to The Whale Sanctuary Project.

It’s so important to teach out children to be kind, caring individuals. We should pass down animal rights awareness to younger generations in a fun, kid-friendly way, and the Munchkin x Project Orca program is a great way to begin. Kids can wear their Project Orca shirts to school with pride, like my daughter does, and they can share about this fantastic cause and what it means to them to save the whales.
Get Involved on Social media
Something as simple as one social media share can drive hundreds or even thousands of people to support this cause. You can grab images from the Munchkin ‘Orcas Live in Oceans‘ page to share on your social media pages. Don’t forget to use the hashtags: #OrcasLiveInOceans and #WhaleSanctuaryProject so we can engage with your content.
