WWF and British artist, author and illustrator Charlie Mackesy have come together to raise funds to help protect elephants, their habitat and support the communities that share their home.
A limited-edition tote bag created in collaboration with Charlie Mackesy features an elephant, accompanied by his beloved characters, the Boy and the Mole from his debut book The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.
Family and friends can gift with purpose, and give something special that will help to benefit people and nature across the globe.
Charlie Mackesy said: “I’ve always loved elephants and I know they’re struggling. I’ve always thought that their faces look a bit like a heart when you look at them head on and I wanted to draw the intimacy between the boy and the elephant, and I believe our connection with animals is more important now than ever. Intimate, striking, lovely.”
“I was brought up on a farm and I’ve always loved animals and little did I know that during my lifetime so many species would come under threat, so for me to be able to support in some small way what WWF is doing, is a huge privilege.”
WWF’s Christmas campaign is one of the largest and most important opportunities for fundraising, generating vital income to help the fight in bending the curve on nature loss.
This year's campaign aims to recognise the importance of ‘home’, by protecting elephants and other animals’ habitats and supporting ways for local communities to safely co-exist and thrive alongside wildlife.
