A Special Thank You From Bambi

Thanks to each of you who donated to Bambi’s Re-Birthday fundraiser. Because of your generosity, we were able to splurge on some fruits that are normally out of budget for everyday snacking. Bambi (and the other girls) enjoyed their usual melons, jackfruit, and pineapple – but we also added a whole variety of new of melons, nectarines, persimmons, pomegranate, dragon fruit, jaboticaba, and – most special of all – some coveted strawberries and grapes. 

Here you can see Mara and Bambi with their morning treats. The girls continued to get more special snacks throughout the day. We appreciate those who gave in honor of Bambi’s anniversary, and we thank those of you who were unable to give at this time for continuing to follow each of these elephants and spread the word about the healing power of sanctuary.

    I always adopt my dogs from abusive situations. You use the word “rebirthday”. I use the words “gotcha day”. Cute words that mean so much.

      We may not always know when their actual birthdays are because there are no records. For the elephants, looking at it this way focuses on the idea that their chance for a new life began when they arrived at sanctuary. Sounds like a very similar idea to yours!
