How WATER for ELEPHANTS and it´s fans are helping elephants.


The Kinkers at www.WaterForElephantsFilm.com have raised $3,151.00 with their charity auction to benefit the International Elephant Foundation´s mission to Stomp out EEHV, a disease that is killing baby elephants. This disease recently claimed the life of 3 year old JP, the elephant nephew of Tai, star of Water for Elephants.

Auction included

Autographed Water for Elephants movie poster signed by the 4 main stars of the movie – Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, Christoph Waltz and of course, Tai the Elephant (note: this is Tai´s personal poster that was gifted to her from the cast, she is parting with it to help save future baby elephants.)

100% of the auction money will go to directly to International Elephant Foundation to fund EEHV research.

Have Trunk Will Travel, and especially Tai, would like to thank everyone for their efforts.


Neria is 5 years old and the daughter of a colleague of mine, Sarah. She and her dance friends are wearing the wristbands and spreading the word about EEHV. Also, Neria’s friend, Stephanie saw WATER FOR ELEPHANTS and simply HAD TO RIDE an elephant. She was at Santa Ana Zoo this past weekend and rode Rosie! I told Sarah that Rosie is JP’s mom! She was very, very excited about that and thrilled to wear the wristband!!
