Today’s day of sanctuary was sponsored by Stephanie Marx in honor of her mother, Gillian Jerden’s, birthday! Stephanie shared the following message about today:
“My mum’s birthday is May 28th. She lives in the UK and I live in Seattle so we rarely see each other on our birthdays. She loves to hear about the sanctuary and what the chimps are up to and has always been very supportive of my passion to help CSNW. I want to thank her for her support and wish her a happy birthday!”
As a member of the amazing team we are fortunate to call our Board of Directors, Stephanie contributes so much to the sanctuary, ensuring that the chimpanzees’ present and future are filled with security and hope. We are so touched that Gillian shares her daughter’s passion for the chimpanzees and we’re lucky to have this human family as part of our chimp family.
Stephanie, thank you so much for thinking of the chimps in honoring your mother and celebrating her life today. Gillian, we wish you a beautiful day full of love and joy! Thank you for all you do for the chimpanzees to make their lives better. Birthday pant-hoots to you from all of us here at CSNW!
