Mother's Day is Special

Honor a special mom this Mother’s Day while helping the puffins!

Honor a special mom this Mother’s Day while helping the puffins!

Adopt a puffin as a gift for a special mom or make a donation to Project Puffin in honor of, or in memory of, a special mom. Our puffin adoptions include a biography and color picture of a puffin, a colorful certificate of adoption personalized with your mom’s name, and the option to receive our Project Puffin: How We Brought the Puffins Back book or a free microfiber lens-cleaning cloth.

Or, make a donation in honor of a special mom and she will receive a letter informing her of your thoughtful donation to Project Puffin in her honor. She will also receive a copy of our Egg Rock Update newsletter.

You can also make a donation in memory of a special mom. We can inform a third party of your donation to Project Puffin in memory of a loved one if you would like. Just provide us with the name and address that you want the notification of your donation sent to. Honorary and memorial donations of $100 and over will be listed in an upcoming Egg Rock Update newsletter.

PS: When adopting or donating online, please let us know that this is a Mother’s Day adoption or donation by writing ‘MOTHER’S DAY’ in the Special Shipping Instructions box or the Additional Comments box on the online form so we can process it accordingly. Also you can tell us any other information that you need us to know regarding the processing of your adoption or donation in either of those boxes. If you miss the box, you can email us at

NOTE: Please make your Mother’s Day adoptions/donations by May 3rd. We cannot guarantee USPS Priority mail delivery dates, so adopt or donate today.
