Patrick Mavros luxury jewellery and sculptures are purchased by Royalty as well as anyone with a love of beautiful animal work. Patrick is a great friend to the Turgwe Hippo Trust. He is a Zimbabwean silversmith.
Patrick is helping towards the sponsorship of this trip by donating some exquisite pieces.
The third five pieces (shown below) will be entered in a draw held at Hippo Haven in Zimbabwe on July 4th, for the minimal amount of 20 pounds, US$25 or 25 Euro per participation. Go to donation link to participate the draw with the 20£, US$ 25 or 25 € minimum amount. Of course you can donate more than once if you would like to. Any donation entered here between now and July 4th will enter the draw.
I will notify the winner and two runners up on July 4th by email with a small video.
I am coming to the UK for a hippo talk and photo presentation at the Royal Geographic Society in London, at the Ondaatje theatre on November 21st of this year.
I am very lucky to have the beautiful Jill Robinson of Animals Asia introducing me and there will be amazing art works by Suzie Marsh and Richard Simmonds for sale as well as my book A HIPPO LOVE STORY.
I last spoke there in 2007. It is time that I return, as a lot has happened to the hippos since then.
I will send updates about the talk later this year.
Love Karen and the hippos
