Elephant Asia Rescue and Survival (EARS) have been hard at work helping to raise awareness and support the Surin Project. They held a 'Surin Project Christmas Appeal' fundraiser to help spread some love and joy this holiday season for our elephants and mahouts. 

Last year with the EARS Christmas Appeal for Surin Project, just over USD 1,900 was raised. But this year we have beaten that target and raised a whopping 2,010 USD! 

We are truly overwhelmed by your kindness and your support. A huge thank you to EARS and to those of you who have donated and shared our posts for the Surin Project Christmas Appeal 2014. You have brought lots of happiness and delight to some wonderful elephants and great mahouts.

The elephants had a Fabulous Fruity Feast yesterday morning thanks to you wonderful people! Their eyes were wide open in desire of all the goodies, squeaks and rumbles were erupting all around and trunks were weaving in and out and even sneaking in and out of each others mouths! It was great to see them enjoying and devouring this massive fruit buffet. 

The money that has been raised through the EARS 'Surin Project Christmas Appeal 2014' will be used to buy the following:

- 3 large trucks of pineapple leaves @ USD 300 each -  which the mahouts will use to feed their elephants throughout the night. The elephants really love the coarse, crunchy pineapple leaves and the roughage in the leaves helps to aid in their digestion too. 
- Not one but TWO Elephant Fruit Buffets @ USD 150 including pineapple, bananas, cucumber, Thai potato and whatever fruits and veggies we can buy at the local market. 
- 5000 Baht (USD 150) donation for the Mahout Fund 
- 500 Baht (USD 15) for each Mahout and Nana our driver as a Christmas/New Year Bonus, plus a funky T-shirt or long sleeve top each. 

Thank you again for your support, kind donations and wonderfulness!
