Anna K. is pledging to give $1000 towards a new chimp proof window if we can raise the remaining $1500 to cover the costs of installation. Come on blog readers!! All of us staff will tell you what a huge difference the window makes. It lets in so much more light and the chimps absolutely love it. There are a lot of windows in the playroom with caging that we could replace with clear chimp-proof glass. Imagine seeing Negra looking out at the valley without having to look through bars.
Share Anna’s challenge (below) with others and let’s see how quickly we can give the chimps another view!
Ok â€“ Iâ€™m thinking grandly here. But sometimes if you have high aspirations, the universe surprises you by coming through! 🙂
One of the b-i-i-i-g things on CSNWâ€™s wish list is another chimp-proof window. And itâ€™s so heartwarming to see how much the chimps are enjoying the one they have â€“ wouldnâ€™t it be great if they could have another?!
It costs about $2500 total to acquire all the parts/materials/labor to install a chimp-proof window. Iâ€™d be willing to seed the pot with $1000. Iâ€™m wondering if there might be 15 folks out there each willing to throw in $100?
Any takers? Could we gather enough money by Christmas to collectively give the chimps another window this winter? If youâ€™re interested in participating, please reply here in the blog or contact me off-line at kirchera at hotmail dot com.
Kudos and cyber-hugs will be freely distributed to partners in this venture â€“ Iâ€™ve got my fingers crossed for another cage-less view of the world for the chimps!!
