“OPERATION LIFT PAIGE’S SPIRIT” IS IN FULL EFFECT!

3cc489b0327b7a8a54252d44d10930aa

Dear friends and family of Paige:

Jeff Parness here. You guessed it. Paige’s FAVORITE “Illegitimate Step-Brother” (also her only one). So here’s the deal:

For those of you who have been watching the GoFundMe campaign to raise funds to build PAIGE’S OUTPOST in Tanzania through the Big Life Foundation….we are almost there!!!

We have raised $21,175 in less than one month…..AND….when we hit the $25,000 mark, Big Life Foundation will officially name the Outpost after Paige! 

Also, this critical initial goal will supply Big Life the basic funds necessary to make Paige’s Outpost functional for the rangers to protect the elephants Paige loves so much.

We are going to keep raising funds to “fully load” Paige’s Outpost after we hit the $25,000 mark and I have already identified a potential major family foundation donor I will approach to support Big Life in getting Paige’s Outpost to the level she dreams about.

Just a little over $3,800 more to go to hit the $25,000 mark and Paige’s Outpost becomes a reality!!! We can do this today!!!

NOW HERE IS THE SURPRISE THAT PAIGE DOES NOT KNOW ABOUT.

(Paige – STOP READING THIS NOTE AT THIS POINT AND GO BACK TO LOVING SHELLY AND THE GIRLS…)

OK, for the rest of you, here is the special surprise:

There are two very special little girls in Boulder Colorado who are going to each donate $1.00 to take Paige’s Outpost “over the top” and get us to the $25,000 mark.

We want to make it possible so that Sterling and Harper are the ones who each donate the last dollars to make Paige’s Outpost a reality and build this incredible structure dedicated to their “Eemah.”

So here is where we need your help: We still need to raise $3,800 to take the GoFundMe account from $21,175 to $24,975 and then we are going to ask everyone to PAUSE in making further donations so that Paige’s daughters can work their magic.

At the point you help us get to $24,975, we are going to round up the donations to $24,998 at which point Shelly will help the girls each donate $1.00 online and leave a special message for Paige.

Sterling and Harper should be the one to make Paige’s Outpost a reality.

But we still need your help to raise the next $3,800 to get to this point. If you have not yet made a donation, please go to www.GoFundMe.com/PaigeOutpost and please donate right now. ANY AMOUNT is meaningful in this effort to lift Paige’s spirits and make this special dream come true. It literally takes a minute to make a donation online.

Also, please feel free to share this special opportunity with YOUR friends and families and colleagues. People love to be part of something to lift someone’s spirits and build something special in someone’s honor and each donation from each person will help Big Life make an even greater impact in stopping poachers from making these beautiful creatures extinct in the land that Paige loves with all her heart.

Please give, please share, please offer this beautiful opportunity to those around you to be part of something truly special and lift Paige’s spirit in her continued fight.

With much love and thanks,

Jeff, Sandy, Evan and Squashy Joshy – the man behind the mission – Parness

Have-a-go heroes: the women saving elephants in their free time

With one elephant killed every 25 minutes, the poaching crisis continues. But with the commitment and activism of a growing global network – dominated by women – laws and attitudes around the world are changing

If dedication and hard work were all it took, Maria Mossman would have saved every last elephant by now. Despite having two children, aged five and seven, and a part-time job for a large corporation, she also spends 35 to 40 hours a week as an unpaid activist. It was even more time when the children were younger. “I used to come home from work at about 4pm and then sit on my computer, networking with other groups and activists until two o’clock in the morning,” she recalls.

Mossman, 41, got heavily involved in elephant activism in 2013. As well as founding Action for Elephants UK (AFEUK), she’s one of the key organisers of the global elephant and rhino marches. “It’s really hard work,” she says. “Really stressful. Just before the marches you say: ‘We’re not going to do this again.’ And as soon as one is over you start planning the next one.”

Boris Johnson backs ‘all-out ban’ on ivory sales

Foreign secretary confirms government’s pledge, despite absence from manifesto

A total ban on ivory sales in the UK could still be introduced by the British government, foreign secretary Boris Johnson has said, signalling a possible U-turn that has been welcomed by conservationists.

In their 2015 manifesto the Conservatives promised to “press for a total ban on ivory sales”. But the pledge was quietly taken out of this year’s Tory manifesto, sparking anger among conservation organisations, which say that by allowing the trade to continue, the UK is fuelling elephant poaching.
