20,000 Baby Elephants
Getting Crafty to Help Save Elephants
To build more momentum globally to #SaveElephants, we have to engage more people who love elephants, but are turned away by horrible photos in the news. So we’re getting crafty – figuratively and literally.
We’re calling on elephant supporters like you to help us make and share 20,000 original images of elephants. (elegrams!)
1. Why 20,000?
Because that’s about how many little elephants will start their life’s journey this year – at a time when it’s never been tougher to be an elephant.
2. But I’m not an artist.
Don’t be shy. This isn’t an art contest. Just use your unique style to create a portrait of one of those baby elephants so that the world doesn’t forget them.
3. How will this actually help elephants?
●  We’ll reach more people. Friends are much more likely to pass around an image that you make than an upsetting news story. Please simply add a caption that says: “Elephants need our help.”
●  As a BIG BONUS, some generous Nature Conservancy donors have pledged at least $20,000 to our work with partners on the ground to protect elephants IF we reach our 20,000 goal.
4. How does it work?
Crayons, cupcakes, pen doodles – you can make an #elegram out of almost anything. (Photos of real elephants don’t count though.) Get instructions and inspiration by visiting our online gallery.
Elegrams already in the gallery include a gorgeous drawing by Brett Dennen on a Martin guitar thanks to our friends at Martin Guitar, founding sponsor of our #SaveElephants campaign.
NOTE: We’ll be featuring some #elegrams weekly on Facebook and Instagram, so be sure to follow us!
