The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Artjamming are partnering up to hold a two day public event in an effort to help save elephants from the ivory trade. This event will be held at Cape Town's Cavendish Square shopping centre on Wednesday the 11th and Thursday the 12th of July. Celebrities and kids aged 5 to 12 from all communities, including the kids from ‘Reach for a Dream’ will be coming to this fun event in which they will participate in a 2-day Artjamming paint-a-thon, culminating in an auction of items created by them.
Animal Action started in South Africa eight years ago and is the largest animal welfare event for youth in the world. In 2012 Animal Action is focusing elephants, and in particular the need to save elephants from the ivory trade. Artjamming, known as the home of paintertainment will be brightening up this event for the kids in an exciting and creative way by allowing them to freely express themselves, making use of various shapes and colours in conjunction with music.
On day 1 children from all over Cape Town will be invited to create a painting in an artjamming session, at no cost. The paintings will be used as a backdrop for the next session on day 2. On day 2 50 children that entered the online competition will paint 10 doors together with celebrity guests. These doors will serve as a constant reminder of the threats facing elephants.The doors will then be auctioned at a cocktail party later that evening and the funds raised will be used by IFAW in its activities to protect elephants.IFAW’s project will also serve as the launch event for an IFAW Kid’s Club.
