The Comfort & Joy online auction is well underway! It started last week and will go until November 18th. I’ve been adding items as we go, and will continue to add more fun stuff before it ends!
Enrichment Coordinator Chad gave me a list of items that he had his eye on. Some are included in the auction as individual items, and yesterday I decided to create an enrichment fund under Help Fund Big Items so we can get all of those small items on Chad’s list.
One of the things we’d like to get is an Amazon Fire TV Stick, which, as I’m typing this, I’m realizing is not exactly an enrichment puzzle. It is, however, enrichment! We should be able to use the Fire TV Stick with our existing TV so that we can stream movies and television shows on Amazon Prime for Cy and friends (right now, we have a large collection of DVDs, but we don’t have the ability to stream).
There are several chimpanzees in Cy’s group who are very into their screen time.
This afternoon, I had YouTube playing for Willy B on my tiny phone screen:
I left my phone there for a while because Rayne had also taken an interest with Dora, Mave, and Lucky sidling up once in a while to watch a little.
So, there’s the start of my pitch for the Big Items funds. You’ll see two appliances on there too. HUGE thanks to those who have already donated towards a frost-free freezer and new dryer!
In addition to donating towards those three funds, there are SO MANY fun comfort & joy items for you to bid on – some for the chimpanzees and some for you to win for yourself! Check them all out now, and keep checking back for new fun stuff!
Here are a couple of bonus close-up photos from today.
