You may remember that earlier this year, Richard Dean Anderson broke his ankle. What he did next was amazing; despite his injury, he kept a promise to go out on the ice floes and be photographed with a harp seal to help publicise the fight against the Canadian seal hunt.
Thanks to Legends Memorabilia you can now buy these photos, which are autographed by Richard, and ALL the money from them will go to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Richard is a director of this charity, so this cause is very close to his heart. The photos are absolutely lovely, and you can get them here:
Here is the official press release from Legends Memorabilia:
RICHARD DEAN ANDERSON and
LEGENDS MEMORABILIA ANNOUNCE NEW
‘SIGNED AND SEALED’CHARITY AUTOGRAPH PROJECT
August 1, 2005(Vancouver, BC): Richard Dean Anderson, Legends Memorabilia, and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society announce the launch of the “Signed and Sealed” charity autograph project to raise funds to assist Sea Shepherd in their efforts to stop the slaughter of Canadian seals.
This project offers a unique selection of photos of Richard with the baby seals taken on the ice floes in March 2005. Each photo has been personally signed by Richard Dean Anderson, and every single cent of the proceeds will go to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
The Canadian commercial seal hunt is the largest mass slaughter of marine mammals in the world, and Canada has slaughtered over 320,000 seals in March and April of 2005.
Paul Brown, President of Legends, said “We are delighted to help Richard and Sea Shepherd in their efforts to stop the seal hunt, and are confident that our many clients and friends around the world will join us in this project.
