Need a special gift for someone?
Give an "I 💚 Sea Turtles" Flippery When Wet 4-pack of vegan soap bars! This special 4-pack contains two Citrus soap bars with a sea turtle image and two Tea Tree Lime soap bars with a heart image. When you give Flippery When Wet soaps as a gift, you give TWICE because 100% of your donation goes to Lisa's Fund at Sea Turtle Conservancy!
Lisa Jo Randgaard's sisters, Linda and Diane, are proud to share our handmade Flippery When Wet soap bars. We make natural vegan soap bars in small batches with vegetable oils and lye, the old-fashioned way. Our soaps are scented with pure essential oils (no artificial fragrances) and colored with oxides and ultramarines. We stamp every bar with a sea turtle image. Our gentle soaps lather beautifully and smell delicious. Our family pays for all ingredients and shipping fees, so 100% of all donations go to The Lisa Jo Randgaard Fund at Sea Turtle Conservancy. With every soap bar, we continue our enduring commitment to "Clean and Protect." Donate now and select your soaps.
Staff Housing and Office Building in Tortuguero, Costa Rica named Lisa Jo Randgaard Building to honor Lisa's conservation ethic.
Tortuguero, Costa Rica, is one of the most important sea turtle nesting sites in the world. Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) began conservation programs there in 1959, vitally important work that continues more than 60 years later. The Randgaard family is overjoyed that STC’s staff housing and front office building was named to honor Lisa Jo Randgaard (8/17/68-5/2/12), our beloved daughter and sister. Building materials were salvaged and reused, which is in keeping with Lisa’s strong feelings about a gentle footprint. Our devotion to the cause of endangered sea turtle protection was inspired by Lisa, and we are happy to see her legacy of goodness grow!
The Lisa Jo Randgaard Fund at Sea Turtle Conservancy is an Endowment Fund that supports sea turtle conservation in memory of our daughter and sister, Lisa, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on May 2, 2012, at age 43, from complications of her rare congenital heart condition. Endowment donations are not spent, but leveraged to provide annual earnings, a percentage of which supports sea turtle research, conservation and education. The larger the endowment's value, the larger the annual impact.
The Randgaard Family’s fundraising efforts serve to increase Lisa's Fund as high as we can take it in our lifetimes. EVERY DOLLAR makes a difference and impacts sea turtles and their ongoing protection, a cause that was near and dear to Lisa’s heart.
Jenny Welk Randgaard, our wonderful Mother and fundraising collaborator, passed away on October 10, 2016, at home in Chaska, Minnesota. Mom loved honoring Lisa's legacy by becoming a protector of endangered sea turtles.
