Will You Be Their Ele-Valentine?


Valentine’s Day is here, and what better way to spread love than by showing your affection for the elephants through something that brings them joy: food! Our Be My Ele-Valentine fundraiser is back, and we’re inviting you to join us in making a difference for the elephants at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil.

By participating in our fun holiday event today, you’ll help us provide a truckload of fresh fruits and vegetables to give the sanctuary ladies some of their favorite snacks. To make your gift more special, you’ll have the opportunity to send a personalized treat to the elephant of your choice, complete with your name and a short Valentine’s Day message. Our goal is to raise $8,000, which will cover the cost of one month’s worth of fruit and veggies for Mara, Maia, Rana, Guille, Lady, and Bambi.

Here’s how it works: With non-toxic, edible markers, we will add your name to a piece of fruit or a vegetable for the elephant of your choice. You can select the individual closest to your heart, or spread love to all of them. We’ll try to capture heartwarming moments of the girls enjoying their special deliveries and share photos and videos on social media a few days later. Keep an eye out, because you might just catch an elephant savoring your personalized treat!

To participate, simply visit our Be My Ele-Valentine webpage, click the donate button and, if you want your name or a short message included on the treat, type the information – including your elephant choice – into the appropriate text box on the form. It’s that easy! Be sure to submit your donation request by the end of the day on Friday the 16th.

Join in the fun and send a treat to the elephant (or elephants) that makes your heart sing.  Wishing you the happiest of Valentine’s Days from all of us at GSE. 🐘💖
