12 Days Of Charitable Giving 2019: The Elephant Sanctuary
It's the first day of my 12 Days of Charitable Giving for 2019. Readers have suggested deserving charities over the past few weeks, and I’ll be posting the results here. Today's charity is The Elephant Sanctuary of Tennessee, sometimes just called The Sanctuary.
I know what you’re thinking: elephants in Tennessee? I was confused, too, until I read their story.
The Elephant Sanctuary was founded in 1995 on 110 acres in Hohenwald, Tennessee. Since then, The Sanctuary has provided refuge for 28 elephants who are retired from zoos and circuses.
