If you are a subscriber to our newsletter, you know that we had a lot of news to share yesterday. For example, there’s a story about the chimps’ new friend and ally, Glee star Charlotte Ross. Charlotte spent a wonderful day with the chimps recently and Burrito completely fell in love with her. I think the feelings were mutual, and Charlotte challenged our supporters with a $1,000 match donation. I’m excited to say we’ve already met the match! Thanks so much to Charlotte and everyone who stepped up to her challenge. Here’s Burrito’s new best friend with the staff (and yes, I am counting Jamie chimpanzee in the background as one of the staff). Photo credit: Stephen Brashear.
And there’s more! We met our $30,000 goal for our anniversary fundraising efforts! But we’re not stopping there. We also shared in the newsletter that we were raising the bar – to $36,000 by tomorrow, which is Foxie’s 36th birthday. Can we do it? I think we can! We’re already at $33,397, so we need just about $2,600 to mark Foxie’s birthday as complete. Help us meet this goal by making a donation NOW!
If you’ve already made a donation, or even if you haven’t, help us expand our reach by sharing this post on Facebook using the little “f” button above. Make sure to add a personal note about why you love these chimpanzees, and introduce your friends and family to the sanctuary and the work we do here. These things only take a second, but they really help!
