About Our Auction
Some items reduced up to 50%!!!! Get a good deal.....and do good.
Just in time for the holidays! Popular children’s book author, Karen Gross, is auctioning off an extensive collection of giraffe sculpture and other themed items to benefit giraffes. A sad fact -- with less than 100,000 giraffes left in the Africa, there are now fewer giraffes than African elephants. Net proceeds of the auction will be donated to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, which co-sponsored Karen’s latest book, Lady Lucy’s Laugh Giraffe Journey, co-authored with Marc Wine.
The colorful book is fun to read, and helps kids learn by laughing! It also serves another important purpose: to assist the Foundation in their efforts to prevent giraffe extinction. A small portion of the proceeds of this auction will also go to buy Lady Lucy Laugh Giraffe Journey books for kids and libraries in need.
So go ahead! Get a great stocking stuffer or holiday gift for someone and know that the money you spend is helping to save giraffes.
Some fun giraffe facts to dazzle friends, family and co-workers with: Did you know that there are four species of giraffes – each with its own spot formation? Even better, that no two giraffes have the same coat pattern? Their coats are like human fingerprints. Or that a group of giraffes is called a tower?
Shipping notes: please be aware there is a $15 shipping fee for items shipped within the U.S. You may also make donations by clicking the green "Donate" button on the top right of this web page. Shipping fees waived for NextDoor.com neighbors purchasing books.
