Worthy Causes - first donation

sunny 33 °C

Thanks to Joyce and Sondra, caring friends contributed money to enable us to donate to local causes.
Ninety abused, neglected and retired elephants from throughout Thailand are treated lovingly in the Ayutthaya elephant kraal. Until 1906 this facility was used to corral wild elephants so that the king could select suitable ones for war. Today elephants from 5 months to 86 years live here peacefully. This elephant home is funded by donations and staffed by volunteers. For more information and great elephant pictures visit www.elephantstay.com

There is no doubt that we will have many more opportunities to donate to local causes, so if you wist to add to the fund please email us.

Love this blog thing, Sheila and Jim. Just got back from Arizona - lovely and warm but NO TREES. Just want to comment that everyone contributed to the "fund" - it was just Sondra and I who set it up. Thanks for the updates, and as Jane said, this is such a great way to stay in touch - Love Joyce
