THANK YOU to everyone who helped us reach our goal to underwrite 40 elephant foot care kits! In less than 48 hours following the challenge from an EAI supporter, you did it — you reached the goal! I am seriously impressed! You met this need with such generosity and enthusiasm.
Mahouts are people of few material belongings, yet they shoulder a huge responsibility for the elephants in their care. Your support demonstrates a genuine appreciation for their work and is sincerely appreciated by the mahouts, me and everyone affiliated with Elephant Aid International. It’s not appropriate for me to speak for the elephants but I am sure it’s safe to say they appreciate your support as well.
Since everyone seemed to enjoy the chipin challenge so much, I will make sure that our most urgent need is always posted with a chipin challenge on the EAI site.
