I am raising money to work with elephants that have been rescued from the logging industry.

My name is Kaylee Brown and I am participating in an Thailand volunteer program through Global Volunteer Network. GVN is a non-Government organization which places people in a range of opportunities such as teaching or environmental work in a number of countries. I will be working with a local organization in Thailand, called Elephant Refuge and Education, for four weeks starting in December 2012. The goal of volunteering in Thailand is to work with elephants who have been retired from civil service or rescued from surrounding areas and to provide them with care and a healthy environment. I hope to provide elephants with the basic necessities of life - love, food and shelter. During my placement I will be caring for fully grown elephants and educating others. I will take on the role of a human mentor that the elephants can trust. A relationship that is often taken for granted by people who have never worked with animals before and seldom understood. In order to complete this assignment I will be using my personal savings and I have been working hard to raise the funds needed to take up this opportunity to help animals. If you are able to help support me financially in some way it would be greatly appreciated. My program fee to volunteer in the Thailand Program for four weeks is $2,347 US dollars. In addition to this, I need to pay for my airfares($4,300), entry visa, vaccinations and insurance. As you can see, volunteering does come at a cost. I would appreciate any donations you can give to enable me to take on the challenge of helping animals and educating. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the program. My number is 517-731-1345, my email is, I would rather be contacted via email because I do not always have my phone on me for work, but I always have my computer. I would like to take this time to thank you for considering helping me in this worthy cause. Your financial aid will enable me to participate in an experience which helps animals and communities in need. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. Yours truly, Kaylee Brown 2300 Centennial Road Salina Kansas 67401
