During an exploratory Zoom today, I was asked again about my logo, so I shared my respect and concern for elephants and how I simply wanted to honor them within my logo. My new contact then told me that he was originally from Kenya and that he recently adopted an orphaned elephant through the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT). I immediately researched SWT and I’m proud to say that we adopted Roho the elephant today!
