Today’s day of sanctuary was sponsored by Kimberle Stark in memory of her mom, Maxine Stark. Kimberle shared this lovely message about her mom:
“My mom passed away on July 4th and she loved chimps and loved the sanctuary for the good life you’re now providing for the chimps who deserve a better life.”
Kimberle, we’re just honored that you would think of the chimpanzees today. Thank you so much for wanting to give them a special day in honor of your mom. It makes us so happy to know how much Maxine loved the chimps and we will all be celebrating her life with you, along with all the many forms of freedom generous supporters like you make possible for the chimpanzees to experience in their sanctuary home. Especially, the freedom to just be. Our hearts are with you today and we wish you a day surrounded by the love and memories of your mom.
