The Boyertown Area Times - - COMMUNITY - — Sub­mit­ted by Hay­ley Crouse

Ains­ley (Ace) Crouse, 7-years-old, is an an­i­mal lover and when she learned about the en­dan­ger­ment of the ele­phants, she de­clared that she wanted to come up with a way to help. She came up with the idea of “em­brACE the ele­phants,” where she hand sews stuffed ele­phants and sells them, with 100 per­cent of the prof­its go­ing to an ele­phant char­ity. In only a few weeks she has al­ready raised more than $2,000. Ace is learn­ing her skills from her mother who is a lo­cal fab­ric and sewing pat­tern de­signer with a stu­dio in her home. In ad­di­tion to start­ing this ven­ture, Ace is also a pro­fes­sional model and ac­tress in NYC and is film­ing com­mer­cials and TV shows in be­tween mak­ing ele­phants. For more in­for­ma­tion visit her Etsy page: em­brACE the ele­phants.
