Our heartfelt thanks to our dear friend of the sanctuary, Kathleen Corby, for sponsoring this special day of sanctuary in honor Jane Goodall on her birthday! And since it’s such a special birthday we decided to dedicate today’s blog to honoring the three special people involved in this post.
“Today, of all days, is a day that my 16 beloved friends in Cle Elum need to celebrate with me, with all of us. Today is Jane Goodall’s 88th birthday! Happy Birthday Jane! Thank you for creating HOPE in a world that so desperately needs it, now more than ever. Thank you for scattering and planting all your Seeds of Hope amongst us. Hope lives and thrives at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. I feel so fortunate to witness it, to feel it, every single day by following the lives of 16 chimpanzees, 4 cattle, 1 barn cat, and the compassionate staff, through this blog. Clearly each staff member, volunteer, intern, and donor has a seed of Jane within them. In your individual ways, you inspire all of us. Thank you Jane Goodall for being my inspiration and for helping me to see that even the smallest action can create big ripples. Each of us can make a difference.”
To the great joy of this beloved someone, they got a new box today. Scroll through to see who (though you may already be able to imagine who it is…):
