I see that the Nature Conservancy is auctioning a Martin guitar signed by Paul to help with their elephant conservation efforts. Sorry, but I don't know how to bid on it but you can make a matching donation today to the cause. https://support.nature.org/site/Donation2?12240.donation=form1&df_id=12240&src=e.give&lu=3321760
^ Dave, thanks so much for posting this, very much appreciated! http://nature-africa.tumblr.com/post/94452137965/paul-mccartney-helps-saveelephants-signed-d-28
***You can bid on this guitar starting 9am ET, Wednesday, August 13 from this page. The link to the auction will be live HERE at that time, so please come back.***
Many thanks to (((((Paul))))) for his efforts in helping to save these beautiful creatures!
I just finished watching An Apology to Elephants on HBO. Absolutely heartbreaking to see the devastating cruelty inflicted upon these incredibly intelligent, majestic creatures. For those who may be interested and have access to On Demand, this documentary is available until the 31st of December.

Paul recently signed a Martin D-28 left-handed guitar, which was put up for auction and raised an astonishing $50,000 within minutes. Bidding began in the morning on eBay with a starting bid of $10,000 and quickly reached the impressive final amount in no time. Proceeds from the auction will go to The Nature Conservancy's African Elephant Initiative. Alongside his signature, Paul also scribed, "This guitar saves elephants" on the Martin guitar. A fitting slogan since the funds will be used to increase security for elephants on the ground in Africa and reduce demand for ivory.
