As you probably already knew, elephants are being threatened due to the illegal ivory trade.
While some governments have made major improvements in terms of ending ivory trade, this horrendous industry is still rampant in certain parts of the world.
This means that while there's still demand for illegal ivory, elephants will continue to get targeted and killed for financial profit.
As a store that serves the elephant lovers community throughout the world, we are working to contribute to protecting our beloved elephants.
We send contributions to two major organizations that have active programs in the field, focusing on protecting elephants threatened by poachers.
More specifically, we reserved a portion of 13 to 15% of our profits to being donated to these two organizations.
The main organization we contribute to is www.savetheelephants.org/donate.
We have chosen to send contributions primarily to them because they are known for dedicating a large percentage of their donations to programs in the field.
The other organization that we contributed to in the past (and plan to do so in the future) is the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, particularly their anti poaching program.

Here's the response they sent us after we sent our contribution back in November:
We've also donated to the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee
In addition, we've been contributing to fostering over 20 orphan elephants.
Here are their names:
You can find more details about each orphan here:
As we grow, we're committed to increasing our contributions as well.
With that in mind, we'd like to thank you for putting your trust in us and in our products.
