Leona Lewis might be PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian of 2008, but that doesn’t mean her work stops with animals! Leona recently lent her famous face to the Elephant Project – an organization that raises money and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association.
The Elephant Foundation was started by David Niederhoffer after he watched his grandfather suffer with the disease and decided to take action. To raise money, David has celebrities pose with a stuffed elephant and sign an Elephant Project card which is then auctioned off. The winner of the auction receives an 8×10 of their chose star, a signed card and the stuffed animal. So far Hollywood hotshots like Zac Efron, Adam Sandler, Julie Andrews, and MANY more have donated their time to help raise over 11,000 dollars for the foundation.
The Summer 2008 round of Elephant Project auctions began yesterday with five to six auctions going live each day until Sunday, July 27th. So hurry on over to ElephantProject.org and bid, bid, bid!
