  • Fancy dress party, fashion show, karaoke night, musical evening.
  • Sponsored car wash, treasure hunt, organised plant sale.
  • Organise donation tins in your area, and collect the proceeds quarterly on behalf of Elephant Haven.
  • Birthday! ask for a donation to Elephant Haven rather than presents.
