Ol Pejeta: Doodle a Rhino and Help Stop Poaching in Kenya

Feeding-Hope-credit-Lewa-Willdife-ConservancyHello everyone! We are helping our dear friends, actor Kevin McNally and his amazing daughter Rachel McNally spread the word about their friends, Daryll Pleasants and Donna Purvis’  Ol Pejeta Conservancy Project.

Due to an overwhelming and generous response resulting in a large amount of fabulous donations, the auction will take place internationally via an online auction site which will open August 1, 2014 . The auction will officially launch with a private view and anti-poaching dog presentation at THE FORUM, NORWICH, Saturday, July 26, 2014 from 7pm -9 pm. Bidding will run for four weeks throughout August at: All proceeds will go towards the upkeep and expansion of the anti-poaching dog section and anti-poaching efforts to protect the elephants and rhinos at Ol Pejeta.

As part of the auction, the organizers have asked talented and well known artists and sculptors to donate a piece of artwork, print or sculpture to their cause. In addition, celebrities/actors/personalities were called upon to consider supporting the ‘Doodle a Rhino’ campaign, in which they doodled a rhino in pencil/pen/paint/crayon (anything!) on a piece of A4 card and signed for authenticity.

Please see Daryll and Donna’s website for more details:, or, contact Rachel McNally via Twitter at @MissRaeMcNally. You may also contact Black Chick Media here. Ready…Steady…Bid!
