Thank You For Your Amazing Support for Pocha & Guillermina! Another 10k Match Now Available!


Pocha and Guillermina at the zoo

Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated to our #GivingTuesday Horizons and Hope fundraiser to help bring Pocha and Guillermina.

We are very excited to announce we have a new $10,000 match, which once met, will bring us to our goal!! For the next $10,000 in donations, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to two generous supporters.

As there are often bumps in the road in life, there is currently an issue with PayPal not processing US dollars on Pocha and Guillermina’s donate form. Credit card processing is fine. We are working to solve that issue; in the meantime, if you wish to donate with USD via PayPal, you can do so through our direct PayPal link here →   All donations received today through PayPal will go to Pocha and Guillermina’s fundraiser. We will manually update the totals on our website throughout the day.

If you prefer to donate with a credit card or other international currency, you can still donate securely on the Horizons and Hope page  If you are just joining us, you can also learn more about Pocha, Guillermina, and their rescue using that link.

A huge thank you to everyone who has already donated and/or shared our posts. We appreciate everything you do for our organization and our next residents, Pocha & Guillermina. Almost there!!

    I have donated. Thank you for your work in bringing elephants to sanctuary. I am looking forward hearing and watching Pocha and Guillermina’s rescue and how they settle into their new life of freedom. It will be a bright spot in a very challenging year for everyone.

    I’ve been trying to donate all day (credit card). Keep getting error message that my Zip code is incorrect.

    Sorry, I just ordered x2 gift baskets for these precious ladies via PayPal before I read your note. I sure hope all goes well with the order. Like countless others, I anxiously await the arrival of Guillermina and her daughterPocha at GSE & follow their gradual transition to once again living the life they were born to live and so deserve. Blessings & thanks to all at GSE for providing this heaven on earth for these magnificent animals.
