SEATTLE, Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- glassybaby, maker of one-of-a-kind, hand-blown, glass votives and drinking glasses today announced that it will donate 10% of all online sales in December to Conservation International in further support of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary in Northern Kenya. Elephants are incredible animals--extremely bright, very emotional and like people, they form deep family bonds--yet many are orphaned due to poaching and the ivory trade. This new project, near the Namunyak Nature Preserve in Northern Kenya, provides shelter and support for orphaned young elephants. glassybaby has also launched a votive named 'home' that will continue to give financial support for this project throughout the year.
"At Conservation International we are working to solve planet-sized problems and our success depends on strong partnerships," said Dr. M. Sanjayan, Executive Vice President and Senior Scientist. "The glassybaby community shares our intense desire to heal the planet. We are very grateful for their ongoing help and support of our work and for this new opportunity to raise much needed funds for the indigenous community led elephant sanctuary and rehab center," Sanjayan added.
