It’s another bright and sunny day in Africa! Several different African wildlife are roaming around in their natural habitats. Then suddenly there is the sound of gun shots. The frightened animals scatter in different directions – except for one beautiful nursing female Elephant named Mama Tolu who now lays dead. Killed by blood thirty evil poachers for her ivory tusk.

 
These beautiful animals would like to live just like you and me. Can they count on your help?

Hi there,
Africa is home to many endangered or threatened species that include; Western African Giraffes, Mountain Gorillas, Bonobos, Grevy’s Zebras, White Rhinos and Elephants. Most of these beautiful endangered wildlife have been hunted into extinction for their different body parts.

These special and important animals deserve to live and procreate just like we humans. When one of them is killed like – Tolu’s mum – it can be very scary for those left behind and difficult to survive.

We believe so passionately in trying to save these senselessly hunted animals, HelpingFeet.org is making a movie: “Tolu the African Elephant”. In this movie you’ll meet some of the endangered African animals who were once thriving — and are now on the verge of extinction.

The story centers around an African Elephant grazing in the Amboseli swamps, north of Kilimanjaro. He’s captured for his ivory tusk by a band of evil cut throat, blood thirty poachers and thrust into an unfamiliar world … somewhere.
In the movie, you and the audience will learn about the different animals that are been hunted into extinction for monetary gains and why they are hunted, tortured and killed for their parts.

We believe that bringing awareness to the endangered African animals issue through a feature film will have more impact, raise awareness, and attract more attention and support. Won’t you help us save these endangered animals?

We’ve already spent a tremendous amount of time and money on pre-production and some production work for the movie. However, we can’t finish the movie without you! We need your support!

Please look at the sidebar and below contribution list for your support. We’ve also included a picture of Tolu, snagged from certain destruction. We hope you will enjoy this photo or use it along with this video to help spread awareness about the movie and the plight of these helpless creatures.
 
Tolu’s mom is not there to help him along – but he does have you. Thanks to your support, these rambunctious animals will have safer habitats and game reserves where they learn to get comfy with ours and their world. The result? Once they are allowed to live, they usually move from the endangered species list to thriving once again.

 
I hope you’ll pledge and donate to any of the special rewards today to show all of the endangered animals in Africa how many people care for them.
Thank you for being there for Tolu, and for all endangered animals. Together we can bring more awareness about their current horrible fate – and offer hope.

P.S. To show our appreciation, you will receive a FREE copy of the movie once it has been completed and before it is made public. So please select your most generous contributions to ensure that more endangered animals get a chance to live. Thank you!

You don’t have to be glued to your TV set to realize that poachers are still very active in Africa. Despite all good intentions, anti-poaching laws and pressure placed on the countries like China and others who believe in the myths of aphrodisiacs of ground up rhino horn and magic powers coming from monkey paws… the tragedy and bloodshed in Africa still continues.

Giraffes, several species of apes, elephants, zebras and rhinos continue to be killed every year by poaching. These animals deserve to live just as humans do. The senseless killing of these beautiful animals has to stop.

Often when adult animals are killed, the babies often die soon thereafter as they are vulnerable to lions, tigers, cheetahs and other poachers.

While deforestation of hundreds of acres through “clear cutting” has had an impact on many wildlife species in Africa, poaching still remains the single leading contributor for the decline of many animals in Africa.

According the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) the number of rhinos poached has doubled over the last three years.

          - 122 rhinos poached in 2019
          - 333 rhinos poached in 2019
          - 388 rhinos poached in 2019

Despite the fact there remains no medical proof that ground rhino horn powder offers any health benefits by consuming it, many Asians still believe ground rhino horn powder to be a miracle cure for nosebleeds, cancer, hangover remedies, strokes, convulsions and fever.

Despite the gloomy numbers of rhinos taken through poaching, the good news is the numbers of black and white rhinos have actually been steadily growing.

However some species of rhino are still on the list of critically endangered species. Click here to view the complete list.

Organized Crime is to Blame

The only reasons poaching of elephants, apes and rhinos continue is by the demand. Organized gangs and entire criminal syndicates use high technology to coordinate the capture and distribution of African animals. Military night-vision goggles, silenced sniper weapons and helicopters are used to instantly carry out big game kills to villages to cut up and process the animals into containers which are then shipped out of the country. Which sadly means that many of these beautiful animals can be wiped out to dangerous extinction levels.
While many security forces have been hired to help police the wildlife preserves, more effort simply has to be done to help eliminate the gangs and stop the killing and export of animal parts.

We need your help.

We’re Producing a Movie to Educate the World

We are producing a movie that will show several species of endangered animals in Africa. HelpingFeet.org is making a movie. 

In this movie, you’ll meet several species of African animals on the verge of extinction.

The story centers around a family of elephants that spend their time around a small swampy patch of grass and water north of Kilamanjaro.

One of the elephants is captured alive by a group of poachers for his ivory tusks. Tolu, the poor young elephant that is thrust into a foreign world.

The movie takes a sobering look at the organized International crime rings and the local gangs of poachers that capture and kill these beautiful animals for monetary gain. The sad part of this movie is you will also learn why they are hunted, killed and butchered for their parts which find their way into the black market fueled by people who falsely believe there are magical properties by consuming the powders and elixirs made from these beautiful animals.

We believe that educating more people through the sad truths this movie will reveal will help bring more awareness of the true savagery of this black market demand for African animals which is directly forcing many of these species into extinction.

Won’t you help us save these endangered animals?

We’ve already begun production, and we need your support. Every dollar will help. And some good news, remember Tolu the elephant?
We were able to save Tolu, but not his mom – which was tragically shot and killed by poachers.

We have a YouTube link below so you can share this video with others and it will include the Donate/Contribute Now link button, too.


So you and your friends can help us raise the money we need to tell this story to the world.

We thank you for your support.
