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.
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.
Patrick is helping towards the sponsorship of this trip by donating some exquisite pieces.
The first three pieces (shown below) will be entered in a draw held at Hippo Haven in Zimbabwe, on 3rd February, for the minimal amount of 20 Pounds, US$ 25 or 25 Euro per participation. Go to donation link to participate the darw with the 20£, US$ 25 or 25 € minimum amount. Of course you can donate more. Any donation from now until 3rd February will enter the draw.
I will notify the winner and two runners up on 3rd February by email. We will do our upmost best to have the pieces arrive at your postal address in time for Valentines Day but cannot guarantee this, as it will depend on your location.
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
