A Sincere Thank You

By on December 9, 2013

To all of you that purchased the Charity Edition to help save elephants orphaned by the ivory trade, thank you. With your support, we are able to donate an amazing $10,000 to ProWildlife and the Elephant Orphanage Project to help them in their mission to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned elephants back into the wild.

It makes me proud to be part of such an amazing community that cares about the real animals behind our famous yellow logo. While the Charity Edition has ended, please consider still donating directly to the cause. You can learn more and donate directly to ProWildlife and the Elephant Orphanage Project here. The page is in German, so you might want to check it out in Chrome for it to auto-translate.
