We are less than one week away from our 4-year anniversary (June 13th)! And that means it’s almost Negra’s honorary birthday! Because Negra was born in the jungles of Africa, we do not know her actual birthday, and because she is the Queen of the Cle Elum Seven, we chose the chimps’ anniversary of their arrival to their sanctuary home as Negra’s special day.
Negra is not only the Queen of the Cle Elum Seven, she is also the Queen of nuts! Nothing makes her happier than her nightbag (nightbags are paper bags of nuts, dried fruit and seeds that we give the chimps each night after their dinner)– check out this video from a couple of years ago. It really is the best part of her day.
In honor of our Queen, we are hoping to stock up on unsalted, in shell nuts! Nuts.com (formerly NutsOnline.com) is a great company that has care packages specifically designed for the Cle Elum Seven, so we hope you will support them while supporting the Seven, too. For $25, we get 1 lb bags of mixed nuts, raw pumpkin seeds, hard shell pecans, raw almonds, raw walnuts, and raw Brazil nuts! It’s a great deal and is sure to make Negra and the rest of the gang so very happy! Visit this link to place an order.
We would also love to stock up on Safeway gift cards. We’ve got big plans for Negra’s big day next Wednesday and really hope to buy some great produce for the party- including lots and lots of lettuce, another one of Negra’s favorites! You can order gift cards and have them mailed to us directly by visiting this link.
Help us give Negra the best birthday yet! We promise to throw a spectacular party for the Queen!
