November 9th, 2011, 10:26pm–I know what you’re thinking; how strange is this? But Rupert Grint is painting an elephant for a good cause. Rupert, along with several other celebrities, are painting elephants to support the Asian Elephant Foundation and proceeds will go to the said foundation as well as the Wildlife Reserves Singapore. The funds will pay for elephant hospitals and land for elephants to roam in the wild. There will be a total of 162 elephants being painted and will be displayed in Singapore for the Elephant Parade which is calling itself “largest open-air art exhibition solely dedicated to saving the Asian elephant.”
Unfortunately no word yet on what Rupert’s elephant looks like. But you can read all about this here which better explains everything.
UPDATE: We DO have a picture of Rupert’s elephant now, along with a quote from Rupert of what inspired him:
My inspiration comes from the human heart with its intricate veins and arteries, intertwined with faces depicting various expressions of human emotions.
