Pink Chillies produces and sells beautiful plush elephant toys across the UK and Europe and many have been known to find new homes in the US to ardent elephant lovers. Each of the Pink Chillies characters is assigned to a charity. So every time an elephant is sold awareness is created and shared. Plus Pink Chillies donates 10% of their profits to those charities. The newest character to join the Pink Chillies family is Da Hong and has been assigned to the Elephant Haven. So each Da Hong sale will create awareness.
Now the Elephant Haven is set to build the first and only sanctuary here in France for retired elephants and needs to raise a substantial amount of money to build the sanctuary.
There are a number of ways you can help:
- You can read more of their article on page 12 in the etcetera magazine here and share it to friends and family: http://www.etceteraonline.org/november-2014/
- You can visit their website and make a donation here: https://www.elephanthaven.com/en/help-out/donate
- You can buy your fiery red Da Hong here
It wasn't until I started working with Pink Chillies that I realised just how much I adored elephants. Every day I read content that has helped me open my eyes to their plight. I cannot imagine a world without these gentle giants. To learn that Elephant Haven have settled on building their sanctuary here in France, no more than a couple of hours drive from me, was music to my ears. I don't have much on my bucket list in life, to be able to see and touch an elephant is definitely on there. So just call me Nellie as I might just find myself packing up my trunk and moving closer to them.
So please do your bit and help give a retiring elephant a home.
