I have to admit, with temperatures pushing 100 degrees it’s hard to get into the Christmas spirit. But after receiving dozens of items from our wish list over the past week, you can’t help but feel the spirit of giving in the air.
We’re so grateful for the support you’ve shown us – you helped stock our shelves with office and cleaning supplies; you gave us new medical equipment so that we can keep the chimps healthy; you sent food and treats for the chimps to enjoy and toys and enrichment to keep them occupied; and you gave us two gently used GoPro cameras so that we can give you a different perspective on life at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. We are truly humbled and grateful for your generosity.
This morning, we collected many of the items we’ve received so far and threw a little party for the chimps. I hope you can see the difference you make in their lives.
By the way, if you sent an item from our wish list and you don’t hear from us in a reasonable amount of time, please drop us a note. Packages from Amazon don’t always include information about the donor and we’d love to be able to thank you!
Merry Christmas in July!
Wow, what a wonderful celebration! Thank you to the people who donated the 2 GoPro Cameras! Those shots of the chimps (and the gorgeous view) with the GoPros were hysterical! Love the way the dolls colorful hair drop into the camera and then we see Foxie with the dolls tucked into her leg, and then her fingers sneak into the frame — it’s like an art film, so colorful! Oh Foxie, you steal the show! And Missy and Annie at the end, love it. Oh, be still my beating heart, that was fun. Merry Christmas in July to everyone!
