It’s always refreshing to see celebrities putting their fame and influence to good use! Leonardo diCaprio, for example, has given generous grants to the World Wildlife Fund and marine conservation group Oceana in recent months. And now, Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr has just donated $100,000 to Friends of the Asian Elephant, a dedicated elephant hospital in Lampang, Thailand.

After personally receiving the check from Kerr last month, Soraida Salwala, founder of FAE, said that the donation would go toward nourishing neglected juvenile elephants.

“We have elephants like baby Naka, who is now one years old. His mother tried to kill him at birth, but we fed him for one year with goat’s milk to help him grow. Miss Miranda Kerr’s generous donation will be for our milk fund. In her honor, we have named the fund Miranda Kerr’s Baby Elephants Milk Fund. She is a beautiful and good woman to help elephants,” said Soraida.

Since the 200-acre FAE hospital in Lampang’s MaeYao National Reserve was founded in 1993, it has helped to treat and rehabilitate nearly 4,000 sick or maimed elephants “for everything from illnesses, knife wounds, gunshot wounds, car accidents, logging accidents and land mines.”

Human and elephant conflicts have sadly become all too common in Thailand, with the Asian elephant’s habitat under severe strain from activities such as logging, agriculture, and the implantation of landmines. In this climate, FAE’s main objectives are:

  1. To assist elephants to enjoy improved living conditions and eventually survive and adjust themselves within natural surroundings.
  2. To aid professionals related to elephants (raisers, researchers, vets).
  3. To gather data on elephants.
  4. To publicize data and produce public reports on status of elephants and movements related thereto.
  5. To undertake for a public cause or to collaborate with other charity organizations.
  6. To deal in no way with political affiliations.

There is no doubt that Miranda Kerr’s donation will help them to continue their vital work!

Kerr has previously spoken out against animal testing. Her cosmetics and skin-care line, KORA Organics, is cruelty-free and vegan (they are included on PETA’s list of companies that do not test on animals), and the products do not contain commonly-used but potentially harmful chemicals such as sulfates, parabens, silicone, formaldehyde, or formaldehyde derivatives.

Let’s hope that stars will continue to speak out for the good of animals and our planet for a long time to come!

Would this be the same Miranda Kerr who likes to drape herself in dead animals? No respect from me for this fur hag.
