Thank you, thank you, thank you! Somehow, those words don’t feel sufficient – but we are almost speechless today.
We are overwhelmed with gratitude at the outpouring of support that we – and Tamy – have received in the past 24-hours. We often refer to our supporters, followers, and fans as our sanctuary family, because you are by our side throughout every journey. . Each time we ask for help, we are overwhelmed with the outpouring for support.
Because of your generous support, we raised $107,421 in 24-hours to help build for Tamy’s Tomorrows. That is literally life-changing for Tamy. When you add in the bonuses, money raised through the website, and the generous $100,000 match- it’s a total of $225,421!
At Global Sanctuary for Elephants, we use the hashtag #SanctuaryHeals, but what happens here is bigger and more impactful than a hashtag. When you compare each of our sanctuary residents today to where they were before their arrival, it is clear how much they have been able to heal, physically and emotionally; they are, in many ways, unrecognizable from their former selves. With your donations in the past 24-hours, we are well on our way to begin building for Tamy so that he, too, can reclaim who he was before, and grow to become who he’s meant to be now. His focus on mere survival can fall away as he makes the decisions about what his future will look like.
GSE wants to send a heartfelt thank you to our generous donor who offered $100,000 in matching funds. We also need to thank a long-time friend and supporter who donated her services to create the touching Tamy video we shared Wednesday evening.
Most of all, thanks to each of you who gave what you could, shared Tamy’s story, and continue to spread the message of sanctuary; you are ambassadors for these animals. An organization like ours is nothing without our supporters. Each day, your unwavering support, faith, and love for what we achieve at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil keeps us going and reminds us just how lucky we are.
From deep in our hearts, we want to express our gratitude – from all the humans on our team, all the elephants we have rescued, and all the elephants we will rescue in the future. We are honored by your continued support. Without you, nothing is possible!
