Foster an Elephant Gift

You Won't Be Able to Resist Helping These Adorable Baby Elephants

Actress Kristin Davis has a truly meaningful gift idea that you probably haven't thought of yet. "One of my all-time favorite gifts for the holidays is to give the gift of 'fostering' an orphaned baby elephant at The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. This is a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. For as little as $50, you can gift someone their very own orphaned elephant and will receive monthly updates on your chosen elephant for an entire year."

Kristin, who has a 5-year-old daughter, Gemma, has given this gift to many of the kids in her life and tells POPSUGAR that "they love to get their monthly updates on how their little elephant is doing. Each elephant has a journey the kids can follow as it grows up and eventually goes back to a life in the wild. So many of the children I have given a 'fostered' elephant to have ended up raising money for the DSWT and really become devoted environmentalists. It is truly gratifying to see how much they learn and develop empathy for the adorable baby elephants and their stories."

Not only will your gift help "provide the love and care needed to rehabilitate the elephant orphans at the DSWT," but Kristin, who is a patron of the DSWT and produced the documentary Gardeners of Eden, added that "you will also receive a digital elephant watercolor painting, created by DSWT CEO Angela Sheldrick, as a special keepsake."
