Buttons The Foster Elephant, Tŷ Hafan Charity Cuddly Toy

Those who are familiar with FFP will know the familiar story of the two elephants Buttons and Blue who have helped countless children and foster families to discuss the concept of fostering. Both Buttons and Blue have already been transformed into eBook characters, Cartoons, and loads of different pictures and art projects by children and young people. Now Buttons is going on his own adventure and he needs your help and support in his quest to raise as much money as possible for Ty Hafan.

You can help by purchasing your very own Buttons through our eBay store https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/familyfosteringpartners, each Buttons comes in their own specially designed pet crate equipped with elephant friendly (paper) hay as well as special care instructions. Buttons will be a young elephant and far away from his birth family, therefore, he will need all the help and support in his new home with you. We encourage everyone who can to take Buttons on his own adventures be those in the home or in your local area and to take as many pictures as possible, send them to us on Buttons@familyfosteringpartners.co.uk and we will share them across our social media accounts so that everyone can see and experience all of Buttons’ adventures. Furthermore, we will choose the best picture each month and make an additional donation to Ty Hafan in their name.
