100% proceeds from all of our items go to pennies for eles, a not for profit that provides funding for Transfrontier Africa projects that are involved with the conservation and research of the African elephant and also raising awareness of their real (not perceived) situation. Stefan Bosman of the Transfrontier Africa team came up with this slogan and Mr G very kindly donated his time and creativity to come up with the great design – Thank you!!!!

Wear the t-shirt and help raise awareness of their plight and help the team continue their vital work!
