From Kari Johnson--Stomp Out EEHV


All of us at Have Trunk Will Travel are working to raise funding to fight Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpesvirus (EEHV). We have designed bracelets featuring our baby elephant, JP, who we lost to EEHV. We are offering these bracelets in appreciation for donations of $5 or more. 100% of the donations will be distributed by the International Elephant Foundation (IEF) to the appropriate labs and projects for EEHV research.

You can help by encouraging donations for the bracelets at your zoo, school, workplace, meetings and from your friends and family. Let us know how many you think you would like and we will mail them right away. When you have collected the donations just send checks and money orders to IEF, P. O. Box 366, Azle, TX 76098. Make sure to note that the donations are from the Stomp Out EEHV bracelets.

Please let us know if you have any suggestions or ideas. We ordered 1,000 bracelets to start and paid for them so that 100% of the money will go for EEHV. If you would like to do the same let us know and we will give you the direct ordering information.

Thank you! ~Have Trunk Will Travel Crew

Folks email me all the time asking what is a "legitimate" animal cause to support, as they are afraid of getting "tricked" into some animal rights nonsense. This fundraiser initiated by the folks at Have Trunk Will Travel is probably one of the best, and most urgent. EEHV has devastated captive elephant breeding.
