A BIG shout out and THANK YOU to teacher ‘Tess Elia’ and students from Killarney Secondary School in Vancouver for doing an outstanding job on their ‘Save The Elephants’ campaign! 

Together, they worked on poster designs, global coffee orders (organic and ethically sourced coffee) freshly roasted one pound packages of coffee, social media, powerpoint presentations, and used our education lesson plans to educate and fundraise for us. They also gained recognition from the whole school and feeder schools with their informative elephant display in the front hall.
We are extremely grateful for their efforts at continuing to support Elephanatics and for their incredible energy and determination to help save the #elephants.
