[2 of 2] Continuing the story of my partnership with @amarula_official: Amarula cares deeply about saving the #AfricanElephant, so with #DontLetThemDisappear through their Amarula Trust – they have partnered with Dr. @Paula_Kahumbu, to amplify her message and to aid in the incredible work she is doing with her foundation @wildlifedirect. WD was the driving force behind the tough anti-poaching legislation which Kenya recently enacted and Dr. Kahumbu has dedicated her life to ensuring the African Elephant will not just survive, but will thrive. She is my newest hero, a woman who is endlessly inspiring. At the same time, Amarula has also launched #NameThemSaveThem which is a dynamic website + a limited edition series of 400,000 bottles of uniquely labeled #Amarula. The number comes from the estimate of how many African elephants are left. Though some estimates say we're now down to 350,000. Using special technology, every single bottle features a differently designed Elephant and a name for that Elephant. No two are the same. Just like humans & elephants! The website allows anyone the chance to design and name an elephant! For every elephant named and shared, Amarula will donate $1 to @wildlifedirect. The link is in my profile to make it easy for you to get involved! ???? #MadeFromAfrica #HandsOffOurElephants
