Welcome to our 2nd stage of this Fundraising effort; that has been enduring for the last year in 2018 in the way of a call for broken jewelry bits and bobbles to be remade into stuff to sell online with all proceeds going to our main topic of AWARENESS we have come to call simply put = LET'S SAVE ELEPHANTS.

3= as well as to showcase our weekly updates on what we are creating for the spring Auction.
Please note with the updates and info on Elephants that we provide;
if there is any questions as to our authentic efforts here we are always open to your feedback.
This simple approach has effectively fueled our growth since we opened our efforts in early winter 2018 when we started this project and we look forward to raising enough funds to go to, at the very least, to be able to adopt a herd of Elephants for a year or two, (we are great dreamers, won't you join us?) nothing would please us more.

It is our DEEPEST WISH TO HELP RAISE FURTHER AWARENESS AND ASSISTANCE FOR ALL ELEPHANTS AROUND THE WORLD. That is our INTENTION and the reason we are here for this project...Ay Ses Dunya, the brainstormer behind this movement, started this effort at the beginning of last year, 2018, upon learning startling figures by scientists she became increasingly so disturbed to learn that Elephants are predicted to become extinct in this next decade! WHAT?? How can this be? This made our Professional Artisan & Healthcare Wellness Worker from Toronto over the last decade so distraught she could not rest easy knowing this~>
so she started brainstorming ways how she could influence some movement on this topic from her location in Canada. She decided to create a type of Fundraising MOVEMENT that would encourage her peers, community, friends, & family to step up and get involved. While at the same time encouraging a continual flow of a narrative on the topic of Elephant Wellness and their possible EXTINCTION due to crisis situations that are destroying their way of life and driving them to extinction within a decade, which means IN OUR LIFETIME WE MAY FACE THE EXTINCTION OF ELEPHANTS.
To Ay Ses, who has been an Artisan for most of her life, now in her 40s, it felt like an opportunity to create an online movement for this cause; as the world has been BECOMING tremendously connected in so many ways because of the internet and therefore she set out to do exactly that. She decided to use Instagram for the first part of her efforts= to make calls out to all she knew & publicly; to encourage donations of their broken jewelry bits and bobbles for 1 year and in that time started sharing Elephant stories and pics on a weekly and bi weekly casual format as to not press or spam anyone, meanwhile she continued creating brainstorms of what she could do with all that came in. After she finished the year of collecting the second stage was upon her, which is to take all that broken stuff and rework and remake it all with other stuffs she has found or purchased to create RENEWED & REWARDING creations to sell for the 3rd and final stage which is to sell it all THROUGH EBAY. to learn more about her you can see all of her myriad of projects online at http://www.aysesdunya.blogspot.ca/
