Blankets for the Chimpanzees

Chimpanzees love blankets. Most of the sanctuaries welcome blankets for their Chimpanzees as a donation. For those that know of me, and those that don't, I once made the mistake of owning 2 Chimpanzees, Mikey and Louie. While they were still very young I decided to place them so that they could be with others of their own kind. Last weekend we went to Garden Ridge and bought 32 blankets to send to where Mikey and Louie are for all of the Apes that they have. There are Garden Ridges in about every state. We only paid $3.00 a blanket! They are soft and large enough for the chimps to play with and snuggle with. Before we bought at Garden Ridge we would buy them from IKEA which also were only $3.00.

The picture above is at the UPS store after the blankets were packed. I believe the shipping for these were less than 40.00. As you can see it isn't expensive to help the Chimpanzees and to make them happy.

Pick your favorite Sanctuary and send them some blankets, it really does make you feel good.

    Judie that's so nice of you, what a great idea.
    I'm sure the Chimpanzees will love them.
