The Big Payback is quickly approaching- May 6th.
YOUR IMPACT OVER THE YEARS
The Big Payback is one of our largest annual fundraisers and, over the years, has allowed us to build habitats, barns, keep the sanctuary safe during fire season, and take care of our girls. It is a 24-hour period that allows your generosity to go much further with prizes and rewards that are life-changing for the elephants.
PRIZE MONEY AWARDED!
Our primary motivation for participating in this specific fundraiser is the prizes. Although there are many, the prize we would like to focus on this year is ‘most unique donors,’ last year the award was $5000. Every different person’s gift of $10 (their set minimum) and up counts as a unique gift and goes towards winning the elephants thousands of dollars.
As an organization, we always do our best to stretch each dollar and make sure to use them wisely. In these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to try to get the most out of your donations. Participating in the Big Payback does just that- last year, our prizes totaled around $6,500.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES THROUGH SHARING
This pandemic and the changes in the world right now are affecting everyone differently. Some of you, who adore and typically financially support our girls, may not be able to do so right now, and we understand that. We have friends and family around the world that are in the same situation. But it is not the only way to help; sharing can have a significant impact. With more people on social media nowadays, your sharing could introduce someone new to our girls and possibly bring in others who are able to give.
OUR SMALL BUT MIGHTY SANCTUARY FAMILY
Our sanctuary family always steps up when needed, which means more now than it ever has. Our girls still need to be cared for, and our organization must continue forward to grow and bring more elephants home to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil. Together, as always, we can do this.
You witness why sanctuary means everything to the elephants that come here. You see the changes in every beautiful soul that steps off of the transport trailer. Lady’s transformation still blows us away almost every day, and she’s nowhere near done yet. Quite simply, none of this is possible without your support- it takes every one of us in our sanctuary family to do our part. We are immensely grateful for your faith in our work, your love of our girls, and your support which has created a future of hope for elephants in Latin America.
Thank you ❤️
We will announce more as the date approaches, but please put it on your calendars now: May 6-7.
