PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ON THE ELEPHANT PROJECT
This summer, I started a small charity project that is turning into something big. It is called the Elephant Project and is to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. My grandfather passed away six months ago from Alzheimer's so I decided I wanted to do something to give back in his honor. Alzheimer's disease is a form of dementia, which causes its victims to lose memory, among other things. There is a phrase "elephants never forget," and we are trying to help people who are victims of Alzheimer's to "never forget." This is how the elephant became the mascot of the project. I am having celebrities sign a business card that says, "Elephants never forget... Thank you for buying an elephant to help someone never forget" and take a picture with an elephant beanie baby. I will then auction these items off to raise the money.
Each auction package comes with the picture of the celebrity and the elephant, the signed card from the celebrity, and an elephant beanie baby. There will be at least four auctions each night starting on Wednesday and I will add more for the next few days. Not every auction will occur this week. All auctions will be seven day listings. All auctions will begin at $10.
I have created a partial schedule of the auctions for now. More auctions will frequently be added as time goes by. Please check back for more updates. The website for the project is http://www.elephantproject.org
Here is the schedule for now:
