THE STORY:

We are fundraising for The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) by running/walking a 5k March 10th in L.A. 


The DSWT is famously known as an elephant orphanage in Kenya and known for their work to protect elephants. DSWT works endlessly to secure a future for this iconic species. They also collaborate with the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) to conserve, preserve and protect all wildlife from poachers with anti-poaching units along with providing community awareness programs and veterinary assistance to any wildlife in need.    


In the 1970’s, Africa was home to approximately 1.3 million elephants. Today, the number is a staggering 300,000. DSWT is hard at work to help save the wild population that remains.    


The work required to support this organization’s initiatives requires tremendous financial support. That’s where we come in. For example, it takes approximately $900 - $1000 a month to care for an orphaned elephant and that care can take up to 14 years until it is ready to be released back into the wild with another herd.    


I know it’s hard to donate as there are so many organizations that need help. But trust me, this is one organization I have seen first-hand that makes a difference. Take a look at the videos/pictures I provided from my time in Africa. How can you resist not helping?!
