Help Save An Elephant

on September 2, 2016

Dear Fans,

I have a very serious and important message I would like to share with all of you. I believe in strength in numbers and the positive effect we have if we work as a group. Last night as I was going through my emails, I came across an email from an organization I support avaaz.org. It was in regards to the crisis our oceans are facing and need immediate protection. After I signed my name on the petition, I was redirected to the homepage where I saw an extremely disturbing and heartbreaking image of a faceless elephant. Brutally and savagely murdered for it’s ivory.

This was from a mass poaching in Central Africa in 2012 where 600 elephants were killed within 3 months! The poachers spared no elephant, they went for the entire herd including their young 🙁 This image caused me great distress and upset me so much I couldn’t get it out of my mind ( I cried for an hour). How could someone harm such a majestic, gentle and intelligent animal? It reminded me of the cruelty humans are capable of and so I feel absolutely compelled to do something to help these amazing animals.

I believe there are more humans who are willing to do good and help support organizations such as WWF and Avaaz who are actively working to protect these creatures, put an end to illegal ivory trading and capture those savages responsible for this horrible massacre. The fact is that 100 elephants are killed each day and there’s been 100,000 elephants killed by poachers in Africa in just 3 years!!! We must protect these beautiful creatures and put an end to ivory trading before they are extinct.

That’s why Punch Brand’s plan is to donate 10% of its sales of any plush hoodie or vest by the end of this year with a goal of donating $1000 to WWF, and other charities such as Elephants Without Borders and Save The Elephants. Just to show how serious I am to this cause, Punch Brand will start with a contribution of $500. So please share this message and take the first step to help protecting elephants.

Will you help me in my quest to protect these magnificent animals?

XOXO Thank you!
