Run, eat, give

IMG_7813We came, we ran, we ate. And with the help of 30+ volunteers, the day went off with relatively few glitches. We raised almost $35,000 to protect Tanzania’s elephants in the Ivory Detection Dog program. (Actually, the total raised so far is $33,843.52, but we’re still fund-raising). Our trained Ivory Detector Dogs, Ben and Charlie, are on their way to Tanzania now, and every little bit helps reach our goal. There’s still time to give — help us get to a round $35,000! It’s easy.

We’re still fund-raising for the Ivory Detection Dog program. Ben and Charlie (the two dogs) are on their way to Tanzania, but we are still short of our goal. Every little bit helps, and there’s still time to give. It’s easy. Click this link to support our program. Help us reach our goal!
