Gerard Butler: Elephant Project Proud

Gerard Butler poses with an elephant stuffed animal in support of The Elephant Project, an organization to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association.

The organization was started by David Niederhoffer, now 19, after his grandfather passed away from Alzheimer’s disease. There is a phrase that says “elephants never forget,” and in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, David is striving for those affected by the disease to “never forget.”

Here’s how it works: Celebs pose with an elephant beanie baby and sign a special Elephant Project card, which are then auctioned off to raise money to fight Alzheimer’s disease. Each auction package comes with an 8″×10″ picture of the celebrity and the elephant, a signed card from that celebrity, and an elephant beanie baby. Gerry, Jennifer Garner, Lady Gaga, Brandon Flowers, Ashley Tisdale, and many more have participated in the project.

Currently, over $15,500 has been raised for Alzheimer’s care, research and support! The Fall 2009 round of Elephant Project auctions began Saturday with 34 auctions live until Tuesday, October 13th. Get in your bids at eBay.com!
