This, folks, is Zambi.
And he is wicked sweet.
See, he's a FurReal friend! You know, the stuffed animals that walk and move and make all sorts of snazzy sounds? Aww yeah.
Well, this is the gift that my Aunt Emily got me for Christmas this year! (Yes, despite the fact that I'm nearly 18 years old. Pffft, you can never be too old for adorableness!)
In September, she went to the country of Zambia (in Africa) for a 2 week long missions trip, and as soon as she got home, she was ready to go back! So needless to say, for the past few months, Zambia and Africa in general have been on her mind. So imagine her surprise when she found Zambi, the African Elephant!
The really awesome thing about Zambi is that the artwork on his ears (and the bracelet that comes with him) was done by children in Africa! 50% of the proceeds from Zambi go towards Hasbro's Project Zambi Fund, which supports programs that help make life better for children orphaned by AIDS in Africa.
So besides being simply adorable, this gift was also just so special, and unique! Zambi just makes you wanna go out and by all of his twin brothers sitting on store shelves ;)
