Miranda Kerr is proving she is not just drop dead gorgeous, but beautiful on the inside too. The Australian model has donated $100,000 to help elephants in need.

The animal lover, whose skin care line, KORA Organics, is completely cruelty free, personally handed the founder of Friends of the Asian Elephant in Thailand the hefty check to help with their mission.

“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,” explains Soraida Salwala, founder of the non-profit organization. “In her honor, we have named the fund Miranda Kerr’s Baby Elephants Milk Fund.”

In addition to nursing abandoned baby elephants, the organization also helps wounded and sick elephants who are victims of knife or gunshot wounds, car accidents and other consequences of the frequent human and elephant conflicts taking place in Thailand because of logging and landmines.

Friends of the Asian Elephant was founded in 1993 and has helped nurse and release over 4,000 elephants back into the wild so far. Kerr’s donation will ensure they keep helping these beautiful and smart creatures for even longer.
