Do you love elephants? Then you can’t miss Elephant Day on Thursday, August 23.
All day on August 23, all elephant items will be 20% off, customers can sample elephant themed snacks while they shop and read fun facts about elephants. In addition, 15% of the day’s sales will be donated to the International Elephant Foundation, which works to protect elephants and their dwindling habitats in Africa and Asia. More information on their work can be found at www.elephantconservation.org.
“This is the second year we’ve held the celebration and fundraiser,” explained store manager Kate McMahon. “Our customers loved it, and we decided to make it an annual event.”
