Sitting with Lady this morning telling her about the caring people from around the world that came together for her, it’s easy to become emotional. Building a sanctuary in Brazil probably wasn’t the ‘smartest’ decision, and if it wasn’t for the elephants in our past, we probably never would have tried. But without all of you, it simply couldn’t have happened. Your love and support is what made a ‘simple’ morning of quiet breakfast, in a vast habitat, with Lady looking and feeling amazing, all possible. It makes us feel like together we can do anything. It is life-changing for these elephants and we are so humbled to be part of this with all of you.
We are blown away by the fact we met our goal last night in under four hours. You guys never cease to amaze us. We are so incredibly grateful. Even though we have reached our goal, your donations can still help us win cash prizes – that’s money we need for Lady, Maia, Rana, and all the rescues to come. As you all know, we stay busy here. We never know what each day will bring – which is why any additional funds raised will go towards helping us meet whatever each day brings with one less thing to worry about.
Currently, we are:
- fifth overall with total fundraising
- with 531 unique donors.
We have already won three prizes:
- “6 p.m. to 10 p.m Most Unique Donors: Medium Organizations,”
- “Meal Time Prize: Dinner on May 6 (Gift closest to 6:30 p.m. CST),” &
- a trivia prize before the Fundraiser even kicked off (thanks to Friends of GSE).
This is amazing, you are all amazing.
We are currently #3 for Most Unique Donors overall – which puts us very close to winning the $5,000 prize. If you have already given, please consider asking a friend to donate to help us win $5,000. We are currently at $54,566, which is $10,000 beyond our goal of Lady’s foot care costs for an entire year!
Thank you all for giving and sharing so far. If you are ready and able to donate, please head here and help us help Lady. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate your support today and always. Maia, Lady, Rana and the other elephants to come are very lucky to have you as a part of their herd.
