Sloth Fan, July 2013!
We are thrilled to announce our new Facebook Fan of the Month, Natalie of Cape Cod, MA.
About 2 months ago I received an email from a mother/daughter team (Sue and Natalie) who had recently learned about the Sloth Sanctuary. They were so enthusiastic about raising funds for us that they decided to create their own handmade products to sell. Natalie is 8 1/2 years old and is a budding entrepreneur. Together they created handmade bubble wands with their very own special handmade bubble soap and individual homemade bars of soap. At a local fair Natalie with the help of her brother (pictured above) set up a table and greeted their customers and told them about the Sloth Sanctuary and their mission to help us. She was able to sell enough of her soaps to donate $25 to the Sloth Sanctuary.
With her donation we were able to buy 25 pounds of carrots and enough fresh harvested cecropia leaves to feed our hungry, hungry sloths! Cecropia leaves are from a rainforest tree that grows its leaves high up in the canopy. It takes a good climber to be able to harvest the leaves. This is one of the reasons that sloths love these leaves so much ….. they are tree dwelling animals and they are great climbers.
Thank you so much Natalie and Mom! We appreciate you!!!!!
