”The Elemoont or Andrei Lubensky’s diverse elemoontian stories” ("SLUN" in Russian, "Elemoont" in English) is a fantastical tale relating extraordinary adventures of an absent-minded elephant falling from the Moon. The tale was published in Russian and Ukrainian newspapers and magazines. The book of Elemoont is taking part in the international charitable action "Help Children." The writer and journalist Andrei Lubensky who is the author of the tale suggested to all editions and publishing houses in any countries to publish freely the story of Elemoont on condition the royalties will be transferred for medical treatment of the children who are ill with leucosis. Every publisher may independently determine addresses for help.

The action was supported by many Russian and Ukrainian printing and internet editions and funds. The charitable action is continuing. There is the aim to change the story about Elemoont into a “brand” that will constantly work for ill children for the sake of their life-saving.
