A Valentine’s Day Fundraiser and a Gift For You!

It’s Valentine’s Day: the time of year when you want to express your love and appreciation for those who have touched your heart. As a way to allow people to do that for the girls and treat them at the same time, we will be giving them extra-special snacks. You can donate a treat to the ladies, with your name, and our artistic Valentine’s Day designs, to the elephant of your choice. Visit the fundraising site here.

How it will all work: We have some edible markers on the way. (They’ll get here a couple of days after February 14th, since we’re in Brazil, after all.) When they arrive, we can add your name to a piece of fruit or vegetable for one of the girls – you can choose the elephant closest to your heart, or just send some all-around love. We’ll take some video of the girls enjoying their special deliveries to post on social media a couple of days later. Click the donation link and, if you want your name included on the fruit, please type that into the appropriate text box on the 2nd page of the form. 

And we hope you appreciate this special video Valentine from everyone at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil to you – wherever you are. Love, your not-so-secret admirers.
