Help save elephants
International Fund for Animal Welfare and Artjamming are joining hands to fight against elephant poaching.
From 11-12 July the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Artjamming will hold a public event to help save elephants from the ivory trade. Celebrities and kids aged 5 to 12 from all communities - including the kids from Reach for a Dream - will participate in this two-day Artjamming paint-a-thon.
Artjamming - known as the home of 'paintertainment' - will be encourage the kids attending to freely express themselves, making use of various shapes and colours in conjunction with music. The aim of this event is to get students actively involved in protecting animals and the environment.
IFAW’s project will also serve as the launch event for an IFAW Kid’s Club. On the second day, 50 of the children who entered the online competition will be selected to paint 10 doors together with celebrity guests. These doors will serve as a constant reminder of the threats facing elephants. The doors will then be auctioned at a cocktail party later that evening and the funds raised will be used by IFAW in its activities to protect elephants.
The online competition details will be posted on the Artjamming website soon.
Dates: 11-12 July
Times: 10am - 4pm
Venue: Centre Court, Cavendish Square, Claremont, Cape Town
