The enormous elephants surprised tourists who were enjoying their holiday on the busy touristy street of Khao San, popular with backpackers. Many tourists succumbed to the charm of the elephants and donated some of their holiday money. The campaign was organised by the Ayutthaya provincial Red Cross centre and the elephants' owner in an effort to help victims of the quake in Haiti. The money donated will be sent via the Red Cross to Haiti.
