In advance of their 5 day rickshaw race in early November through Madhya Pradesh in India as part of Travels to My Elephant, an effort inspired by the work of the late Mark Shand to help call attention to the plight of endangered Asian elephants and support their conservation, Yasmin and Amber have established a Virgin Money Giving page to raise money for Quintessentially Foundation and Elephant Family.
Amber, who set up the page, writes that funds raised will go to helping save endangered Asian elephants, a cause close to both of their hearts. She adds that those who donate will be added to an email list to receive fun pictures and videos of them from the roads of India.
Elephant Family, the organization founded by conservationist Mark Shand, is dedicated to saving the Asian elephant, whose numbers have plummeted by more than 90% in the past century, from extinction. Quintessentially Foundation aims to improve the education, health, and welfare of disadvantaged people worldwide. Your donation will help support both of these important causes.
So far, £267.50 has been raised with a goal of £10,000. Donations will be accepted through November 1st.
Visit Yasmin and Amber’s Virgin Money Giving page to donate.
