Hi all! I am raising money for non-profit Elephanatics BC to rescue an abused elephant in Thailand's tourist industry and retire her to the Elephant Nature Park - a beautiful sanctuary in northern Thailand with over 70 elephants. Elephants suffer physical, emotional and psychological damage every day when made to perform or give rides. Click here for details.
Anyone who knows me knows I hate the cold. (I might live in Canada but I am in the warmest city here!) If I raise $1000 I will put on a full-body elephant costume PLUS pink pool floaties and run into the freezing North Pacific Ocean on January 1, 2018 (that's the dead of winter here, Aussies!) If I raise $1500 I will put a video of me doing it online. For those brave enough to witness such a spectacle, I will be at English Bay at 2:30 pm on New Year's Day.
All single donations of $100 or more receive a free, limited-edition "Ride A Bike - Not An Elephant" t-shirt, postage included. To claim your shirt, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your choice of pink or grey t-shirt, your size (S, M, L, XL), full name, complete address and phone number.
Thank you so much to everyone who can help! No matter what size the donation, your support means the world to me and the elephant whose life we will change forever. I can't wait to meet her! I plan to assist the Elephant Nature Park team in the rescue and will send video updates to those who would like it. For info on the great stuff Elephanatics does for eles, see www.elephanatics.org.
