Today’s sponsor-a-day is in memory of Kate Daugherty’s mother, Delores Daugherty. Kate is a chimp house volunteer. This is what she shared:
“I would like to sponsor this day of sanctuary for the Cle Elum Seven in memory of my mom, Delores Daugherty. Today would have been her 79th birthday. She passed away when I was 16 and I miss her every day. But I also see and feel her every day in all that I do and most love in life. I am so very grateful to her for that. I know that she would be as madly in love with these seven chimpanzee people as I am. I’m profoundly aware of the importance of the mother/child bond. So with my mom in mind, I also honor all that each of the chimps has lost and all that they carry with them.”
Thank you so much for honoring your mother’s memory in this very special way, Kate.
