> One Tire One Good Deed Campaign (16th Dec - 30th Jan 2014)
To kick off Ecopia Month, Kong Nuon Group is launching a One Tire One Good Deed campaign. For every one tire sold in Kong Nuon Group's own shops, KNG will donate US$1 to support Chhouk and its prosthetic leg.
Ecopia month is a 1.5 months long event whereby we spread and share awareness of Bridgestone's eco-friendly tires - ECOPIA.
Who is Chhouk? Chhouk, a tiny elephant calf, was found wandering alone in Mondulkiri having lost part of his leg to a snare. He was rescued by Wildlife Alliance and the Cambodian Forestry Administration and taken to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center. Wildlife Alliance contacted the Cambodian School of Prosthetics & Orthotics, who created a prosthesis to enable Chhouk to lead a normal life.

Chhouk required a new foot every 6 months to match his growing size and energy.
