I have a passion for elephants - so Black Cat Badges are proud to support the charity 'Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary'  - see http://blesele.org/.  Based in beautiful Sukothai in Thailand, it is run by the amazing Katherine Connor. She rescues working elephants from horrific conditions in tourist and logging camps and gives them the freedom to roam and browse her 500 acres of forest area, bathe in the river or ponds and come to the sanctuary HQ to get treats. She also rescues any other animals that she comes across - dogs, cats, pigs and more! 

To help support this wonderful organisation I have created some special Badges and Key Rings with elephants on them, which are available in either red or gold backgrounds as seen below. The Key Rings are available for $50HK each and the badges for $30HK each plus postage. All profits go to BLES. Please feel free to contact me (sasha@blackcatbadges.com) so you can buy these to help support BLES - or you can just donate to this wonderful cause by clicking directly on their website.

If you are interested in elephants I also encourage you to support the following wonderful elephant organisations; 

MAHOUTS, run from the UK by Sarah Blaine - they have a fun shopping site as well as having their own foundation helping elephants in Thailand - http://www.mahouts.co.uk/.

Phuket Elephant Sanctuary run by the lovely Louise Rogerson - www.phuketelephantsanctuary.org

For African Elephants check out The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust - run by the incredible Dame Daphne Sheldrick and based in Kenya saving hundreds of orphaned elephants, stopping poachers, and more - http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/ 

Finally though not elephant related I also love Karen Paolillo's work with the Turgwe Hippo Trust in Zimbabwe - http://www.savethehippos.info/

All of these organisations do amazing work!
