Volunteering with Thailand's Elephants

I am going back again in March 2014 to help Lek Chailert with saving and rehabilitating the Asian Elephants that are beaten and enslaved for entertainment, riding, and street begging. We do soooo many things daily for the elephants and it is the MOST WONDERFUL time of my life being with them!
I will also be working with the 400 dogs she cares for, rescued from meat trucks on the way to be killed and eaten :( and from the flood in 2011. Since I came back from my time there, it is all I can think about and I know I must make her work part of my life. I will also be staying among the hill tribe people and helping to build structures such as schools, dig wells and ditches, and anything else I can do for them. * what Lek is doing is mind blowing! The donated funds will go to the cost of this trip's 3 weeks of volunteer work (we pay to stay and scoop poop, break our backs hacking fields of corn with scythes, hauling rocks, mixing cement, building walls, etc etc.) . the weekly base cost is around $500.

I know we do not all like to take these kinds of vacations :)
I do this for ALL OF US. If you would like to help me fulfill my life's mission, please know that I will be proud to represent you in my work.
Peace for all beings.
Love Christine
