Arlene and Michael Okun, supporters of Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest for the last several years, are celebrating their anniversary today and have chosen to include sponsoring a day of sanctuary as part of their celebration.
They included this very touching message, which I think everyone should take a moment to read before you head into the rest of your day or your weekend:
We have so much to be thankful for, and as we count our blessings we include CSNW among them. Thank you for the outstanding work that you do. We would like to share our special day with the chimps. We wish them and all of you what I think we all would like: to be well, to feel safe, to feel loved, to have good company, to be happy, and to find joy in every day.
What a beautiful message, Arlene and Michael!
It is what we wish for everyone reading this too. A big happy anniversary to you both!
