The HK House of Peers and Harmony Kingdom offer you the
opportunity to win
prototypes of Haji's Hero and the Elephant Wee Beastie. At the same time you can
assist NAMI [National Alliance for the Mentally Ill], a grass roots
organization dedicated to eradicating mental illness and improving the
quality of life for those affected by these diseases.
Haji's Hero Prototype
Haji's Hero was created in England by
Harmony Kingdom artist Monique Baldwin. It was one of the redemption pieces for
2002 Royal Watch members. This piece was
named after an elephant calf born November 28, 1999 at the Dickerson Park Zoo in
Springfield, Missouri. The 31-month-old elephant calf, Haji, the first to be conceived by artificial insemination, died
suddenly from elephant herpesvirus.
Haji's Hero Prototype
The Elephant Wee Beastie was also carved by Monique Baldwin, and was available only from the Dickerson
Elephant Wee Beastie Prototype
The prototypes differ from the issue pieces in several ways:
- Haji's Hero prototype is a solid piece; not a box
- The base is
marked Elephant Redemption Piece Prototype
- The base of
the Elephant Wee Beastie prototype is marked Wee Beastie Elephant #001
Elephant Wee Beastie
was held on eBay
and ended April 27, 2003
NAMI is the nation's leading grassroots organization solely dedicated

(major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia,
obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety disorders). Their
efforts focus on support to persons with serious mental illnesses
and to their families. They advocate non-discriminatory and
equitable federal and state policies; increased research funding
into the causes, symptoms, and treatments for mental illness; and

illness. Through advocacy and education, NAMI translates
biomedical research advances into effective treatment and services
