Giving Tuesday 2023 Has Begun!

Today is Giving Tuesday! It’s a day set aside to support the causes and organizations closest to your heart, which we hope includes Global Sanctuary for Elephants and all of our special residents. Here at GSE, we’re using Giving Tuesday to highlight two of the elephant residents who need hands-on direct care each day: Rana and Lady. Since most of the girls here at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil are getting on in years, they require close monitoring. But Rana and Lady fill big spaces in the hearts of those who follow us, because they seem to truly embody the freedom that sanctuary exists to provide. They trust us, and, in turn, each day we seek to return that trust with the utmost care and compassion. 

Thanks to Asia Wild, we’re able to double donations up to $50,000. For each dollar you donate for Rana’s care, Asia Wild will pitch in a dollar for Lady’s care. Your donation (even if you gave early) will make two times the impact! Please don’t underestimate the difference your gift will have this year!

Giving to GSE means you are helping elephants not only live the most normal, natural lives they can, but you’re providing them with top-notch medical care on a daily basis. Our team’s daily attention makes sure that the elephants are always in the best possible condition to live their lives exploring, sharing time with friends, and getting lost in the vast space. We want to ensure that Lady, Rana, and the whole elephant family at ESB always know they are cared for and feel free to make their own choices. 

Please give and have your donation matched! What a great way to round out your holiday giving plans than by sending some love to all of the elephants here at ESB. 

P.S.: Giving Tuesday is also Crypto Giving Tuesday. The Giving Block has offered a separate $500,000 global match for all donations of crypto, stock, or donor advised funds (DAF). These funds are available to organizations everywhere, so give now if you want to have your crypto donation matched by The Giving Block.

    There is still time to help us reach our $50,000 goal as evening approaches on this wonderful #GivingTuesday! As always, we are amazed by the levels of support that our GSE family shows us time and time again. Thanks to your generosity, we are 75% of the way to our goal and have raised almost $38,500. We are confident that we can raise additional funds to meet the match before the night is over. If you haven’t donated yet or want to learn more about this Giving 2sday cause benefiting both Rana and Lady, as well as the $50,000 match from Asia Wild, please visit our website:
