Our second day of sanctuary for the chimpanzees was sponsored by Jordan Bower in memory of her mom, Susan Olson. Jordan shared this very touching message about her generous gift:
“It is during the holidays that I miss my mom the most. Her greatest gift to me was to impart the love and respect she had for animals. She also loved to give gifts. I can’t think of a more fitting way to honor her memory on Christmas Day than to sponsor a day for my 7 favorite animals on the planet! Thank you for all that you do to give these 7 souls peace and sanctuary every day. Happy Holidays.”
Jordan, we’re so touched that you would honor your mom in this way. We’re sending you all the good thoughts and hope this season also brings you comfort, peace and love-filled memories. Thank you so much for this special gift for the chimps.
“Fahoo forays, dahoo dorays, Welcome Christmas, Christmas Day.” Merry Christmas and happiest of holidays, everyone! We have two generous gifts of sponsorship for a day of sanctuary for the chimpanzees today! The first one was generously donated by Josh and Kiley Beitelspacher!
Josh and Kiley, thank you so very much for thinking of the chimpanzees today and for helping to make possible all that brings them joy, wellness and comfort. We so appreciate you!
It makes our hearts grow ten sizes just thinking of all the love and care surrounding the chimpanzees not only today, but every day! The inspiring amount of compassion and generosity from everyone who makes their lives here possible, the excitement, joy and hooting and hollering the chimps will be doing as they celebrate, all of it makes our hearts grow ten sizes just thinking of it.
From our size ten hearts to all of yours, thank you. Thank you for loving these seven amazing chimpanzees folks, the four beautiful bovines, and all those beings who we look forward to having join our family in the future.
Have a magical day, everyone!
