Would you like to win a getaway to the San Juan Islands? By participating in our fundraiser it automatically enters you to win! See details below.
Travel by ferry from Anacortes, WA to an island oasis, Friday Harbor. You’ll be treated to a two night stay at Friday Harbor Suites and stay in their “king-bed room”. Get your morning brew at Riptide Cafe and then schedule a tour through the Salish Sea on a whale watch tour with San Juan Safaris! You won’t be disappointed. OR choose to go on a guided 3-hour kayak tour. Grab a bite at Market Chef and pop into Sand Pebble for a souvenir before heading home.
The San Juan Islands are north of the Puget Sound, about 1.5 hours from Seattle. During your downtime, make your way to the south end of the island and comb South Beach, or walk the Finlayson trails. If you head to the north end, we recommend eating dinner at Madrona Grill overlooking Roche Harbor. Visit the Lavender Farm, Westcott Bay or the many shops in both Friday and Roche Harbor. The nostalgia of this little island is just the breath of fresh air you’ll need!
With the purchase of EACH tshirt/product on our Bonfire fundraising page, you'll be entered to win the getaway. By donating a monetary sum either on our website or through Bonfire, that equals two entries. Entries go until the evening of July 13th. Product purchased from Bonfire will be delivered by or around August 2nd.
Your partnership here is more than just t-shirts and the possibility of a fun getaway, it's reaching families who need it the most! Join us by stocking up on Daniel's Heart gear and perhaps even dedicating a monthly sum to our ministry. We appreciate you!

We recommend you visit in the spring or fall. The island is vibrant with color and there are less tourists than the heavy summer months. The island is beautiful year-round, but many restaurants and activities are closed in the winter, from December-February.
