For animal lovers who are especially in love with elephants, fostering an orphaned elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust organization is one of the best gifts money can buy. To my 5-year old granddaughter, I am giving the opportunity to make a difference in the life of an elephant in Africa by adopting Ajok. This lovely and magnificent elephant was orphaned when he was one week old. His mother was probably killed by poachers. Read all about AJOK here. Click the images below to enter their website.
You won't find a better organization out there making a bigger difference in the lives of orphaned elephants. It's hard to feel like there are good ways to help end the suffering that so many animals endure. For me, my heart is warmed by knowing a non-profit organization like the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is out there, spending its donated funds wisely and making such a wonderful difference in the lives of elephants, rhinos and other animals through its years and years of hands on experience. I whole heartedly endorse this organization and ask that you put them at the top of your list when you're seeking to donate to a worthy wildlife organization.

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
