The Practice for the Elephants Contest raised $155.74, enough for us to adopt 3 orphaned baby elephants for a year, or 1 for 3 years, I’ll let the students decide. I am so proud of all of them for raising this money, just by practicing the piano, to help the orphaned elephants in Kenya.

Baby elephants are orphaned when their parents are killed for their tusks for the ivory trade. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust helps these orphaned elephants. For more information on the fostering program for orphaned elephants in Kenya, please click here.
