Jungle Friends' Share Your Heart Campaign

A letter from , Founder/Director of Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary:

29 January 2005

Dear Friends of Jungle Friends,

Jungle Friends has been given the opportunity to extend our compassion to 13 monkeys who are currently at the 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 this beautiful Share Your Heart card to your loved one(s) for Valentine's Day. 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 we are able to type in any sentiment that you would like, from "Be My Valentine" to "Happy Birthday". The inside of the card has the poignant quote: "Until he extends the circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace."

Just let us know by clicking here and filling out the Share Your Heart donation form [in Adobe Acrobat .pdf format.]

Jungle Friends is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Donations are tax deductible and can be made on your credit cards from Jungle Friends web site at

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 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 and send this beautiful Valentine Card to your friends and loved ones.

Jungle Friends also has a 2005 Calendar, featuring monkeys who were rescued. All proceeds directly benefit the monkeys at Jungle Friends. Click here for more information.

Help us help those who cannot speak for themselves. Thank you so much for your generosity!

Lots of monkey love,
Kari Bagnall, Director
