Donna and Doreen Hughes are long-time friends of all the primates here at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, especially their pal, Foxie, with whom they share a special love of trolls. They are twin sisters living the life in their beloved Big Apple and today is their birthday! Being the kind and compassionate souls they are, they chose to celebrate by sponsoring a day of sanctuary for the chimpanzees and shared this message:
“We’d love to celebrate our birthday by sponsoring today! We love Foxie and all of the chimps. What gift could be more meaningful than to help the Great Apes? We hope the 23rd of January is a wonderful day for the chimps, and every day this year! We hope to visit the sanctuary in 2015! Love from NYC!”
Donna and Doreen, thank you for all you do to support great apes everywhere. We are so lucky to have you as part of our chimpanzee family. We hope you have a beautiful day and that all the love, joy, and kindness you send out into the world comes back to you tenfold! Happy Birthday!! (Maybe try some back-flips in Central Park, Foxie-style! Or at least give your trolls a good toss about!).
