Dear Friends of Jungle Friends,
"Until he extends the circle of compassion to all living
things, man will not himself find peace." ~Albert Schweitzer
Jungle Friends has been given the opportunity to extend
our compassion to 13 monkeys who are currently at a lab and are being
retired from research. There are 9 capuchins and 4 squirrel monkeys ready
to relocate to Jungle Friends. We have been given until spring to prepare
a home for the monkeys’ retirement here at Jungle Friends. To do this, we
are asking for your help.
Sandie Friedland, Jungle Friends monkey sponsor, is
hosting our Share Your Heart campaign this year. Sandie painted a
beautiful Portrait of Howard for this year's Share Your Heart card and
campaign. Howard is one of the squirrel monkeys recently retired to Jungle
Friends from the same lab.
We will send a beautiful Share Your Heart card with the
Portrait of Howard on the front. We will include with the card, original
monkey art on a 3 x 5 canvas for a donation of only $25 and original
monkey art on a 5 x 7 canvas for a donation of $50. We are making the
cards right here at Jungle Friends, so if you would like to send it as a
gift we will type in any sentiment that you would like, from "Be My
Valentine" to "Happy Birthday" . Just let us know by filling out the
donation form (www.aesop-project.org/Share_Your_Heart_form.pdf) that you
will find on the Share Your Heart (www.junglefriends.org/share.shtml) page.
Sandie is also donating beautiful 8 x 10 canvas Portraits
of Howard to Jungle Friends. Howard's Portrait will be your gift for your
$100 donation to Jungle Friends. All of the donations in the Share Your
Heart (www.junglefriends.org/share.shtml) campaign will go directly toward
the lab monkeys’ retirement.
If you are in the area or are going to be in Gainesville,
we could sure use your help building the habitats. Our normal "Volunteer
Day" is Saturday starting at 10 am; however, we will be working on
habitats for the lab monkeys every day.
Please make a contribution toward this very important
mission today. Please Share Your Heart (www.junglefriends.org/share.shtml) and send this beautiful Valentine Card to your friends and loved ones.
Help us help those who cannot speak for themselves. Thank you so much for
Lots of monkey love,
Kari and the monks
