Why 20,000? It's one elegram for every elephant being born this year into the worst poaching crisis in history.
As a founding partner of #SaveElephants, we are encouraging every Martin fan to submit an elegram. This is where creativity rules! You can doodle it, paint it, decorate something, almost anything counts! You can then upload it to the elegram gallery by using the hashtag #elegram or uploading it directly to the gallery here.
Recruit your friends and family! Let's collect 20,000 elegrams for those 20,000 baby elephants!
