Kids Tusk Force Working With Schools and Groups
KIDS’ TUSK FORCE UK invites children and teachers from schools across Britain to get involved with a crusade to help stop the killing of African elephants…to stop poaching, and to stop the illegal trade in ivory…BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
First request permission from your Head Teacher, then register your school with KIDS’ TUSK FORCE UK.
Create a display board of ''Did You Know'' facts about elephants in your school - Make our beads- Design your own advertising posters - hold a fundraising sale …..If your school is small perhaps you can join forces with another. Make your families and friends aware of what is going on and how much you care about the future of elephants. Organize a presentation to your Head Teacher….Invite the School Governors….Hold a school assembly to inform all the children and teaching staff about your Bead Sale, why you are getting involved and why you want to foster an orphaned elephant. Invite your MP…invite a journalist and photographer from your local paper. Make your voices heard!
We can help you…For further information contact us ….. kidstuskforceuk.org.uk
There is a famous old saying that ‘An elephant never forgets’……..You will never forget what you have done to help give a little elephant at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust a future.
Please follow these instructions when you are ready to foster the orphan elephant you have chosen for your school.
- To help you choose, you can view the orphan profiles at www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/asp/orphans.asp which lists the orphans from youngest to oldest.
- Once you have chosen which orphan you wish to adopt, go to www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/asp/fostering.asp, select your orphan and the number of years you wish to foster.
- The website defaults to US dollars, with a minimum fostering donation of $50. However, once you continue and enter your UK address, you will see this convert to GBP/Sterling.
Here is a useful guide to the current exchange rate....
- $50 US dollars = approx £35.00
- $100 US dollars = approx £70.00
- $500 US dollars = £350.00
- Approx $715 US dollars = £500.00
(To work out the approximate value in US Dollars, you can multiply the Sterling amount you wish to donate by 1.429).
