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.
