What if every person who reads this blog today sent their favorite post or video or photo or an email that explains their new friends at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest to seven friends, family members or co-workers? How many new friends could the seven chimpanzees have by next week? And what if those seven people contacted seven of their friends? How long would it take before millions of people knew about these fantastic folks with many more stories to tell?
I’ve personally told all of my family, friends, and former co-workers about the Cle Elum Seven and my new great job taking care of them, but I would bet that there are at least seven people in my address book that I haven’t told yet. So, first thing in the morning, I’m going to find those people and let them know! I hope that you will do the same – go out and find more friends for Annie, Burrito, Foxie, Jamie, Jody, Missy, and Negra.
You’ve been learning about the chimpanzees, and I think the chimpanzees should also know about you!! We’re not open to the public, but the chimps respond to photos, so I want to make a photo album of all of their friends! So, in addition to letting seven people know about the sanctuary, please send me a photo of yourself, your dog, your favorite mountain, whatever. It doesn’t have to the best photo in the world – just send something. With the photo include your name, email address and mailing address and whatever note you’d like. (You can send photos to PO Box 952, Cle Elum, WA 98922 or you can email me digital photos. If the photos start coming in, I’ll do the first friend photo album in time for a showing on July 20th – the big party day for the chimpanzees.
Let me know what you think!
