First – the CSNW store is almost ready to launch! We’re waiting on word that the merchandise will arrive this week, and I’ll let you know as soon as the store is live. I’m so excited! I received such great feedback about the items we will be carrying – just wait until you see everything “in person.” I’ll likely be adding stuff as we go, but the initial items are note cards, calendars, tote bags and t-shirts. We’ll do our very best to get orders out in time for x-mas so that the Cle Elum Seven to be well represented at your holiday gatherings.
Second – Cory Michael and Fresh Facials and Skincare had their open house this past week. 20% of all sales went to CSNW, and they released a new product – Chimp Balms! Jesseca will be adding them to their website store soon. 15% of all sales from their website and direct sales of products and services for the rest of November will go to the sanctuary. I went on the site the other day and bought all kinds of great stuff.
Third -Tamela found a really great BIG acrylic mirror that we can mount in the chimpanzees’ enclosure so that they can admire themselves! You can help pay for the mirror by making a donation online or by mail and including a gift note that says “wall mirror”.
Fourth – Michelle of Rabbit Ridge Designs is busy spreading the word about CSNW in Alaska. She is donating 10% off all sales for the rest of the year, including shows she attends and online sales. She raised nearly $300 for the chimpanzees a few days ago at a show! Because I don’t “do” wool, I was particualarly interested in the bracelets and the hand-dyed soy silk yarn that Michelle sells – definitely check out her site.
Fifth – Shelly C. is advertising her beautiful Lights of the Valley soy candles on the forum and any sales she makes through the fourm she will give 20% to CSNW.
