Back to school with Laura the Elephant!

See you August 13th!!!

Mark your calendars for this year’s Fund Raiser: Saturday, August 13, 2011. We have confirmed our guest, Laura the Elephant, a rescue from Zimbabwe, who will be helping her people by giving elephant rides and posing for pictures. Laura is a well known resident of Ivory Farms, here in Michigan, and we are delighted to have her join us for this year’s fund raiser, which will focus on collecting school supplies for the newly completed Nan Ray School of Learning in Thebola, Malawi.

Items such as pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, pencil sharpeners, christian and primary books, will be collected at the fund raising site (details to follow) in exchange for a ticket, good toward some of the events offered that day. Please let me know if you are in the area and would like to volunteer your time. We would love it. The funds raised from Aug 13, will pay for a 40ft container being shipped to the school. If you have items that you would like to send, now is the time, to let me know! These are exciting times.

Thank you so much! I can’t wait for you to meet Laura!!!

Also! The new and improved webpage is back up and ready to serve you. Big thanks to Steve, who updated it so that it can handle the overwhelming responses that we have received. Thank you to so many of you who are spreading the word about how we can help these children.

Love, Rachel
