#Elegrams Help Save Elephants

Mon, 2014-11-10 23:20
The Nature Conservancy (nature-africa.tumblr.com/post/… is trying to get "elegrams" to help save elephants!

Donors have pledged $20,000 to The Nature Conservancy for programs associated with anti-poaching efforts and elephant sanctuaries in Africa if we all pitch in and create 20,000 "elegrams" in the coming weeks. To participate, create a piece of elephant art (it can be anything from 3-D art to food sculptures - but no photographs of real elephants) and upload it to the Nature Conservancy's website listed above, or to Facebook/Twitter with the hashtags "#elegram" and "#SaveElephants"

Let's help save some elephants, fellow Deviants!
