If you are interested in helping elephants this holiday season, consider giving an elephant gift to those you love!
I have discussed previously how you can foster an elephant through the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust ($50) or The Elephant Nature Park ($100). Your gift recipient will receive updates on the elephant throughout the year.
Two options from the World Wildlife Fund (with a $55 donation) are this ladies’ t-shirt or this plush African elephant. With a smaller $25 donation, you can receive a set of five gift bags, one featuring an elephant.
For $18.95 you can purchase a calendar from the Elephant Sanctuary, a wonderful place in Tennessee which cares for 27 elephants who are retired from zoos and circuses.
If the person you are gift giving to appreciates a monetary donation in his/her name without a physical gift in return some organizations to consider are The Thin Green Line Foundation, which helps wildlife rangers, or Friends of the Asian Elephant Hospital, which gives wonderful medical care to elephants.
