We are doing a limited edition Ramba shirt.
Many of you have mentioned that we don’t have any Ramba shirts available through our online store. We had one in the works for all of the girls, but that stopped when she passed away. Instead, we decided to do a different design, one that honors Ramba and the phenomenal being that she was.
The ‘Ramba Effect’ is something that has been mentioned before – she played an instrumental role in making this Sanctuary happen. She was an inspiration to us, but also an inspiration for many of you as well. She was the reason numerous supporters found GSE, and she brought so much to Rana, Maia, and even Lady in such a short time. She is one of those elephants that will continue to have an impact on the sanctuary, us, and you for some time to come. Her strength and spirit live on.
Those who have followed us for a while know we occasionally partner with FLOAT for limited-edition merchandise. For those who are newer, FLOAT is a company that pairs with different charities each week for limited edition clothing. Each design they offer is only available for a week, and we receive a portion of proceeds for each of “our” shirts sold. Shirts will go on sale Monday, and will only be available through Sunday, February 2. (&, yes, they ship internationally). The website is FLOAT (but you won’t be able to see our shirt until Monday).
We will always be grateful to Ramba for who she was and the effect she had on everyone in her periphery, and we hope this design honors that, and honors her. May this design be a way for her to continue to educate and open hearts. As people who love her and wear her proudly are asked, ‘What is the Ramba Effect?’ and are able to share her story, her struggles, and her light. ❤️
