THE STORY:

Good Elephant is forming a global herd of people inspired to change the world for the better! Anyone can apply to become herd leaders in your city responsible for throwing ONE INCREDIBLE massive inspiring Good Elephant party event each year. Just think TEDxTalk with a DJ spinning music, local leaders sharing stories that give you goosebumps, local beverages, and local food. The goal is to be THE party for changemakers in your region each year! We already have San Diego, Toronto, Philadelphia, Tucson, Chicago, Bombay, Havana, and many other cities on board! We know the solutions to climate change, ending violence against women, sweatshop-labor and beyond. The question is will millions of Good Elephants rise up together to form a global community to make change happen?

Started by Alok Appadurai, who previously co-founded:

  1. Fed By Threads: the first sweatshop-free organic clothing store that fed people in need
  2. A Beautiful Body Project: a media platform featuring 35 female photographers in 14 counties to battle the negative effects of mass media on women.
  3. The Bodies Of Mothers Book Project: 170-page hard cover book dedicated to positive body image and women's stories about their bodies and lives. 
  4. The Movement Shala Dance & Yoga Studio: a safe space for people to express themselves through physical movement.

To inspire a more sustainable world, Good Elephant will host incredible trips, events, trainings, retreats, and webinars to mobilize our global community to make an impact. All of our choices make ripples so let's make them do good. The non-profit will be funded by donations like yours as well as through compassionate commerce by selling goods made by people getting paid living wages using sustainable materials. 100% of net profits will fund our mission to inspire people to change the world. Our first project will be to team up with a women's non-profit sewing collective in New Delhi, India to make GOTS-certified organic cotton Good Elephant shirts where each shirt will be signed by the woman who made your shirt. Community + Commerce. Our actions shape the world we live in. Will you join me? -Alok Appadurai :: Founder
