The goal is to pass along 50 elephants to Bethany to pass out to kids in the upcoming season. (50 x $10 = $500)
Everlasting Elephants is a project that I came up with when I first heard that there was an opportunity to help the immigrant children. I always knew that I wanted to help these children and families in some way, because I couldn’t imagine being in that situation. I did know that I would be absolutely terrified.
Through all the hard times, these children have nothing. They either lose their items along the journey, or they just don’t start with anything. I thought the least I can do for these children is to get them a stuffed animal they can just have to comfort them.
Elephants are my favorite animal, and my hope is that these stuffed animals will be everlasting.
