This is a fundraiser to raise money for worthy causes.
Here's some more information about it:
In Thailand there is only 1000 elephants remaining in the wild and these numbers are dwindling fast. Though there are still elephants working in captivity, stressful working conditions and painful training make this means that these elephants are not reproducing well. The GVI Thai Elephant project works to put elephants foraging in their natural habitat with both their social and health related needs being met. In addition we are working with a small Karen elephant keeping community.
