Well, this post is waayy long overdue. I’ve wanted to update this blog for so long, but somehow life got in the way. But no excuses! The adventure is never far from my thoughts, and it will always be one of the happiest memories of my life.
I am thrilled to have raised over $2800 for Space for Giants in their mission to help eliminate poaching of elephants, and to help reduce human/wildlife conflict. As you all know, elephants are in danger of becoming extinct in our lifetime, and your generous donations will help ensure this doesn’t happen. The members of the anti-poaching units put their lives on the line, and monies raised help to provide the necessary equipment for them to do their work as effectively as possible.
I will be updating this blog very soon, along with photos from the trip. In the meantime I wanted to share this link for March For Giants. I hope you will watch the video. It’s at the very top, and takes a few seconds to load. This is an initiative of Max Graham, founder and CEO of Space for Giants to raise awareness of the crisis elephants face, Max has dedicated his life to ensuring elephants, as well as other wildlife, have a future, and I think he, his passion and his idea are nothing short of amazing. Elephants are in crisis, and awareness and funds are desperately needed to help their recovery.
For only 5 GBP (6 USD) you can ensure a baby elephant’s survival for a month AND from March 23-26 you will be able to watch the baby, with your name on it, march virtually across some of the biggest billboards in the world! What’s not to like??
If you have a brand, for a contribution of 5,000 GBP, you’ll ensure an elephant’s survival for its lifetime, and of course, your brand will also be on an adult elephant, marching across those billboards. That’s a pretty small amount considering the exposure the brand will be getting.
So I’m hoping you will consider contributing. How wonderfully cool will it be, for only $6, to see a baby elephant, with your name on it, march across a giant screen in Times Square or Piccadilly Circus?? And the best part is, you’ll be part of the solution.
And, of course, it’s never too late to contribute directly to Space For Giants. Just go on the Fundraising tab, then click on the link, and go to the right side of the page to Contribute.
