Shannen has joined 'The Elephant Project' which is an organization to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association.

To raise money, and awareness, the company have celebrities pose for a picture with an elephant beanie baby, which are then auctioned off in an Elephant Project auction package! Each package consists of an 8x10 photo of a celebrity posing with the elephant, a signed Elephant Project card by that celebrity, and a special elephant beanie baby!

More details will be posted soon. The company will let me know when her auction is up. For now, you can view the the photo:

HOLY CRAP!!! I am obsessed with elephants, been collecting knick knacks since I was younger of elephants and had beanie babies and i still have a stuffed animal my brother gave me that are all elephants...that picture just made my day! I would love to bid on that, even though I don't have lots of money, it would be worth it for the cause, and for shannen and the elephant...two of my fav things together...ahh! Thanks for the info Dianna!

Shannen looks really great and cute with the elephant. I used to collect some Beanie Babies, but not elephants.

I want a purple Elephant...

I wonder if anyone in her family is suffering from Alzheimer's

I have to tell you this story...When my brother and I were young and we were( we were living in FL at the time..we just moved to FL because my brother was so young) We were seated at the airport and this sweet elderly lady was seating in her wheelchair she had no idea where she was, she was crying( she seems like she was crying) She seemed so alone and its was so sad watching it. I remember I was sad for her..she had no one with her.

That is cool that you work with people like that, its a great thing! I recently just got into an elephant craze after being in Greece. My Indian friend who was on the trip with me, started telling me how elephants are sacred over there, etc. And I bought a cross-body purse that had elephants on it and looked very Indian. lol. This is a neat idea for a charity, I am sure a lot of people will be on board because Shannen is, and hopefully they'll raise a lot of money!

I am really happy to be able to work around seniors and to be able to help with projects like alzheimer's and such. Some of them just dont' get the love and respect that they need. It's sad. But this project is so endearing. Elephants are truely special. I once read or heard that elephants trunks must face the windows if you have them on your shelves, etc...like knick knacks...and everyone of mine does...bc if not it's bad luck! Don't know how true it is, but i won't take my chances with it...lol That's awesome that you are into elephants, too!
