This year so far, I have donated gift certificates to two Windermere Foundation auctions (for the Queen Anne & Madison Park Windermere offices), and to the upcoming auction on Oct. 1 benefiting Chimp Sanctuary NW. CSNW was founded to provide a place for chimps once they are released from research. It is a wonderful organization and I love following the blog of daily life for the chimps, now that they have better lives. One of the chimps even likes to collect troll dolls. 🙂
I am looking for other ways to use my skills to support worthy causes and organizations working with those in need in our community, so let me know if you have any ideas!
