Today is all about the elephants.
You may remember that our very own Aria Jae is hosting a fundraiser to save the Asian Elephants. The auction went live today at noon, in honor of Thailand's National Elephant Day, and will run through March 23, Aria's 5th birthday. There's a lot of awesome goodies going up on the auction, so be sure to stop by! Here's the auction link: http://hyenacart.com/stores/TansyDolls/
Look at some of the amazing elephant-themed crafts you can bid on!
Elephant Family, a UK based charity.
If you're in Portland, you can also come join us for an art-filled evening at Art ala Carte this Saturday, 3/16, 5-8pm. The event is $9 per person, with half the entrance fee also going to Elephant Family. It will be a ton of artsy fun, and I hear a rumor that Le Cookie Monkey will be donating snacks as well. You know you don't want to miss that! You can come hob-nob with the whole Tansy Dolls crew too!
If you're not into either of those, you can still support Aria Jae's Elephant Saver Fundraiser with a direct donation. More info about that on the dedicated blog: http://elephantsaverfundraiser.blogspot.com/
We're so proud of Aria and truly touched by everyone who's come on board to help with her dream. If you can't participate financially we'd love it if you could help spread the word; share this blog post, the dedicated blog link, the auction itself, or one of the posts on our Facebook page. We really want to show Aria that one child really can make a difference.
UPDATE: Did you guys see Aria on the news?!?! If you missed it, check it out here. Or here on Fox 12's Facebook Page.
