I would really like to help my friend Connie. She has been caring for Chimpaneze and other primates for most of her life. I met Connie over 10 years ago and then worked for her for about 4 years. She has fallen on hard times, but still trys to keep a smile. I would like to raise money for her to be able to get a non-for-profit license. She has no steady income. Without help soon, she may lose more than the chimpaneze. She has had some of the primates for over 40 years. She went thru a terrible divorce which left her without any money. She has cared for chimps that were from small circuses, zoos, or privately owned that could no longer care for them. Connie provides a safe environment for these animals.
I would like to help her by helping her get a license and hope after that has been established, she might get more help from the goverment. I honestly don't know, how and where to get help for her. I just know she needs help( that is why I joined Crowdrise). So I have no amount in mind, just any amount, would be great. Connie is a wonderful woman that is only trying to care for these animals. These animals are her life.
