The blanket is over half way finished and I'm over half way towards realizing my fundraising goal! As little as $10 will do, but a donation of $50 will allow you to pick the orphan of your choice (if not already done). Consider Quanza, 12 months old, found standing by her dead mother having lost her two sisters as well, all victims of poaching. Or, three year old Mutara who is showing so much promise at being a matriarch, looking after the small calves.
You can go to http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/asp/fostering.asp to see a full list of orphans to choose from.
Blankets play an important role in the recovery and rehabilitation of orphaned elephants lucky enough to find a home at the DSWT nursery. You can read more by visitng http://www.dswtwildernessjournal.com/orphans-in-blankets/
