Gorilla Foundation
March 3, 2013

The Gorilla Foundation has been around for years, and Penny and her team continue to do outstanding work with the gorillas and promoting awareness. When I was in 5th grade, I discovered and read "KoKo's Kitten". The book gave me a new appreciation for the primate world. I began writing letters to the foundation and recieved handwritten responses in return from them, even from Penny herself. I decided to hold a can drive at the elementary school I attend and we raised funds for the gorillas. I received a very special letter and 8x10 picture signed by KoKo herself!! The money they raise is distributed for multiple purposes including the new BIGGER habitat that was built, medical and general care of the gorillas, upkeep of the preserve , awareness and continued studies among a multitude of other things. They rely on donations to continue to do the work they do. I am 28 years old now.....and still love and appreciate the primate species as much as I did when I was a kid! Would LOVE the opportunity to volunteer or work at The Gorilla Foundation! LOVE the work you do!!! Thank You.
