IT ALL STARTED WHEN...

Back in 10th grade we had to choose six subjects we wished to study for the next two years as part of the IB program, and one of the subjects I chose was ART. The first project we were assigned was about finding themes you would like to explore and interpreting your thoughts into art. I called my grandmother in despair, hoping for some inspiration. She started speaking of her childhood in Kenya, and spoke so warmly about her faint memories of the elephants. And that is how the first Elehathi Elephants were created. 

As I sat in the living room pleased with my work, I told my mother, "How funny would it be to see people walking around with this elephant print on their T-shirts?."

It started off with one elephant. And now there are 18. As I have multiplied the designs, I wish to multiply the amount of elephants I can help. I wish to multiply the love I can spread one T-shirt at a time. 

I know I can’t end the poaching of elephants in one day. But each and every effort counts. You can change an elephants life. You can do it. One T-shirt at a time. Yes, it does take time, but what doesn’t take time? Take 5 minutes out of your day and do something good. It’s simple. It is not as complicated as it sounds.
— Mahnoor Raja

Be part of the change. Be part of something small. Be part of something big. Just be a part and I can assure you, you will want to do more.

Yours Sincerely,
