What It IsZambi the Baby Elephant is one friend who really gives back! A special-edition Furreal Friends plush toy, Zambi is part of Hasbro's Project Zambi, a global cause initiative dedicated to raising awareness and supporting programs that help care for the estimated 15 million children who have been orphaned as a result of the AIDS epidemic in Africa.
Zambi the Baby Elephant features soft and cuddly ears and feet that are covered in a special fabric pattern designed by boys and girls from Zambia in one of the communities dedicated to caring for children orphaned by AIDS. Like the other animals in the FurReal Friends line of come-to-life plush pets, when kids play with Zambi, he will play, blow kisses, raise his trunk, and trumpet his elephant call! He'll also have a sensor on his trunk so he can hold onto your finger and shake your hand.
Fifty percent of Hasbro's net profits from the worldwide sales of Zambi the Baby Elephant will be donated to Hasbro's Project Zambi Fund. Hasbro has committed to donate a minimum of $500,000 (in U.S. dollars) to the fund beginning in 2009. This fund will benefit programs that help make life better for children orphaned by AIDS in Africa.
