Project Zambi & Zambi, the baby elephant.
I recently learned about Zambi, the Elephant & Project Zambi. I wanted to take a minute to let you guys all in on this great cause & adorable toy.
Earlier this year, Hasbro launched PROJECT ZAMBI, a global cause initiative tied to the new special edition FURREAL FRIENDS ZAMBI THE BABY ELEPHANT toy that is dedicated to raising awareness and benefiting programs caring for children orphaned by AIDS in Africa.
Hasbro has committed to donate 50 percent of the net profits from ZAMBI THE BABY ELEPHANT -- a minimum of $500,000 (in U.S. dollars) -- to the PROJECT ZAMBI Fund, part of the Hasbro Children’s Fund, beginning in 2009, and hopes to expand this global campaign to include additional Hasbro products and brands in the years to come. By purchasing Zambi the Baby Elephant, consumers will be supporting programs that work directly with children orphaned by AIDS in Africa.
This latest initiative is a part of the work Hasbro conducts in the U.S. and around the world to help children in need through the Hasbro Children’s Fund and product donations. In 2008, Hasbro impacted approximately four million children through its charitable programs and product donations.
Zambi the Baby Elephant can be found on Amazon & other stores for a great holiday gift that teaches kiddos about helping others, which after all, is what the holiday spirit is all about.
He's super soft & simply adorable & hugs your finger with his trunk, as well as sings you songs & interacts as all FurReal do.
Check out Zambi when doing your holiday shopping this year!
