We often get involved when contemporary art and raising awareness/funds for a good cause come together. Elephant Family is a charity we are very familiar with so to be offered the opportunity to assist in a small way to help safeguard the lives and environment of the endangered Asian elephant, is particularly thrilling.
We are extremely proud to announce that we are showing our support by becoming the ‘OFFICIAL SHIPPING SPONSOR’ for Elephant Family’s ‘The Animal Ball Art Show 2019’.
