We are all fans of
The Elephant Sanctuary
in Hohenwald, TN and have "adopted" Liz, an Asian elephant, that has been lucky enough to retire to her forever home at the Sanctuary. According to The Elephant Sanctuary they exist for two reasons, first, "to provide a haven for old, sick or needy elephants in a setting of green pastures, dense forests, spring-fed ponds and heated barns for cold winter nights" and also "to provide education about the crisis facing these social, sensitive, passionately intense, playful, complex, exceedingly intelligent and endangered creatures."
You can only imagine the cost of caring for an elephant. Additionally, due to the result of inadequate care before coming to the sanctuary, Liz contracted Tuberculosis. Because The Elephant Sanctuary is a non-profit organization, it exists solely through donations from others.
We plan to continue our fundraising throughout the year.
Join us Sunday, October 20th, from 1-5pm, for our annual "Get Rid of the Junk in Your Trunk" sale. Load your car with everything knitting that you are ready to part with and bring it to sell, barter, or trade.
