Elephant Care International


COVID-19 has changed everything

Today, more than ever, it’s critical to stay safe by staying home. So now you can shop to shop for truly unique holiday gifts from the comfort of your home.  https://www.32auctions.com/helpelephants2020

Except for a small processing fee charged by our online vendor, nearly every dollar you spend will go directly to supporting our ongoing “Elephant Healthcare & Welfare Emergency Lifeline Fund.”
We promise you won’t find these items in any store. That’s because they’re from the far corners of the globe and have all been donated by our Team, as well as our good friend, world-renown artist Alpana Ahuja. Whether you purchase something for yourself or for a loved one, you’ll feel good by doing good!


So, pour yourself a hot cup of coffee or tea and start shopping by clicking on this link (and please feel free to share it with friends): https://www.32auctions.com/helpelephants2020
