If you love elephants, you’ll love Sparkle. She’s a baby elephant sized wire frame holiday display that glows a beautiful golden color under your tree or, perhaps out in the yard. Yes, we did auction one of her sisters last year as a fundraiser for Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital in Thailand. No, the Sparkle in this picture is ours and she stays with us. You’ll be bidding on another of her identical twins through our eBay auction that is currently in progress.
Do you think that maybe you’ve seen this Gemmy Sparkle ornament on display at Lowe’s? You might of last year, but they are not offering an elephant display this year. In fact, I couldn’t find her or anything similar even on the Gemmy site. That makes Sparkle and her sisters rare, indeed, and getting rarer and they are adopted into good homes. Really, who’s going to let go of this precious elephant once she moves into their home?
Did I mention that your winning bid not only gets you this exciting holiday elephant but also helps elephants? It’s true. In fact, I’m donating 100% of the winning bid price on eBay once again to the Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital. Shipping costs vary, so you’ll be responsible for that.
Don’t think about this for too long. It’s a one week auction and we already have an opening bid. Join in the fun and perhaps get your own brand new in-the-box Sparkle elephant in plenty of time for holiday cheer. Here’s the listing link again.
Update Sunday, October 11, 2015: Congratulations to Nancy Nortell for being the big winner of this eBay auction in support of FAE.
John, we LOVE our Sparkle! She looked lovely in our front window this past winter and will grace our home from now on. It’s her spot! I wonder who’ll win another ‘Sparkle’ this year? Start the bidding, people! It’s never too early to shop for Christmas!
