Update: Only 60 Hours to Go
With 60 hours to go, we need only $3,000 to meet our goal of $10,000 to bring the second elephant home. Thanks to many of you, we’ve raised enough to get one of the elephants to Hope, but we're short of the full amount for the other, and our campaign ends at midnight Sunday. We know we can make it with your help. Will you donate now? You can donate with a credit card or your PayPal account.
Perks include a personalized tour for four people of the Hope Elephants facility! Dr. Jim will guide you and your friends around the newly-built facility and you will also get to meet Rosie and Opal! Some groups of four have put in $125 each to have that opportunity. (Airfare and lodging not included)
You can act through our current Indiegogo campaign, Hugo to Hope: Buy a Mile, Bring These Elephants Home. While you are there, have a look, enjoy the video by Marty Laurita, check out the perks that accompany all the donation levels and then help us out!
Elephants are among the most sophisticated and beautiful creatures on earth. They are an endangered species, iconic around the world and threatened with extinction. Hope Elephants is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that will bring these two Asian elephants to Maine for care and rehabilitation. Hope Elephants will also be an educational destination where visitors, especially school-age children, will have an opportunity to see, hear, and interact with the animals as a platform to present the big issues surrounding conservation, habitat destruction, and ecology.
