Devin's Bar Mitzvah Project

Devin's Bar Mitzvah Project

Dear Friends and Family, 


As part of my Bar Mitzvah preparation, I am completing a Mitzvah Project and have chosen to raise funds for The Elephant Sanctuary. I also hope to raise awareness in the process. 


I love animals, especially wildlife animals, and my love for them goes far back to when I was very young. As elephants have been one of my favorites since then, I have chosen to support The Elephant Sanctuary. Elephants are an endangered species and have been mistreated both in the wild and captivity. The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee provides captive elephants, those retired from zoos and circuses, with individualized care, the companionship of a herd, and the opportunity to live out their lives in a safe haven dedicated to their well-being. Education is another very important part of The Sanctuary’s mission. They raise public awareness through their Distance Learning program, teaching hundreds of school and community groups around the world about the complex physical and social needs of elephants in captivity and the crisis facing elephants in the wild.  


Since 1995, The Elephant Sanctuary has been home to 27 elephants and is North America's largest natural habitat for captive elephants and with 2,700 acres allows the elephants to engage in a range of natural behaviors previously denied to them in captivity. Many of the elephants have suffered many long-term and complex issues common to elephants that have spent their lives in captivity, such as tuberculosis, obesity, arthritis, and aggression. Elephants are remarkable and intelligent creatures, form families with deep connections, and even show humor and compassion. The sanctuary works to meet all needs of the elephants: physical, social and behavioral. As a true sanctuary, The Elephant Sanctuary is closed to the public. The best way to see the elephants is by live-streaming the EleCams (via site posted below). 


The Elephant Sanctuary protects and respects captive elephants and guarantees them a good life while making a strong effort to combat the crisis facing wild and captive elephants. I would love for you to learn more about each of the individual elephants and about The Sanctuary itself and its actions on their webpage: www.elephants.com. Don’t forget to check out the EleCams! If you want to support my efforts and this cause, I would greatly appreciate any contribution you can provide. 


With much appreciation,


Devin Karp
