A Reason to Celebrate!

A Reason to Celebrate!

We’ve got big ambitions:

to save elephants and build community.

So far this year, we’ve built a community of over 10,000 ele-advocates on our Facebook page, nearly 1,000 followers on twitter, and a few hundred subscribers to this blog. Since June, we’ve been able to fundraise $9,000USD to send to our friends in Zambia at the GRI Elephant Orphanage to help support Kavalamanja, an orphaned elephant victim of the ivory trade (picture below). What started as a simple blog, has transformed into a group of committed volunteers helping to spread awareness and care for the elephants of this world.
