Have you heard of Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest? Recently a customer who volunteers for the organization told me about their mission and I knew I had to help.
According to their website, the CSNW is located on a 26-acre farm in the Cascade mountains, due east of Seattle. CSNW is one of only nine sanctuaries in the country that cares for chimpanzees.
CSNW was founded in 2003 to provide sanctuary for chimpanzees discarded from the entertainment and biomedical testing industries.
The farm is home to the Cle Elum Seven, a group of chimps who were rescued from a lab in Pennsylvania last year. You can learn more about the gang here on the website, and also see videos like these on the charming blog.
We hope you'll join us on Saturday, October 25th as we host a fundraising shopping spree at our store. We'll donate 20% of the gross sales that day to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest. (All merchandise and custom orders qualify. New gift certificate purchases excepted.)We want to raise as much as we can for these beautiful animals, so please tell your friends!
