Khloé Kardashian Odom is channeling her inner artist to help save the Asian Elephant, a species on the verge of extinction. Joining other celeb supporters such as Katy Perry, Isaac Mizrahi, Tommy Hilfiger, Goldie Hawn, Diane von Furstenberg and Joss Stone, among many others, the Kardashian decorated a life-sized baby elephant sculptures for Elephant Parade, a unique charity created to raise money for the endangered elephants.
Kardashian Odom’s colossal creation will be featured with dozens of other artists in Elephant Parade, an open-air exhibition making its American debut in Dana Point, (just south of Los Angeles) after stops in London, Milan, Amsterdam, Singapore and many other global destinations.
Elephant Parade was founded in 2006 by father and son team, Marc and Mike Spits. While on holiday in Thailand, Marc was introduced to a baby elephant named Mosha, who became the world’s first elephant to be fitted with a prosthetic limb after stepping on a landmine. Her inspired journey helped build the foundation for the socially-conscious business enterprise, Elephant Parade.
“Our goal is to actively help and save as many Asian elephants as possible and we are thrilled to have Khloé join the elite roster of international artists for the American debut in Dana Point,” said Mike Spits, co-founder of Elephant Parade. “Through the commitment of The Resorts of Dana Point, acclaimed artists and and celebrities like Khloé, we can bring positive change to the world and paint brighter future for a species threatened with extinction.”
To date, Elephant Parade has raised more than $6 million for Asian elephant conservation and approximately 8 million people worldwide have experienced the expositions.
