MOUNTAIN GORILLAS - $5 sponsors wanted to "Adopt a Gorilla"

With the 1st birthday of this site fast approaching, I thought it might be a very nice idea if we could find 10 sponsors who'd be prepared to donate $5 each (about 3 GBP), club together, and adopt a wild gorilla infant as the official mascot of Another Chance To See!

I collected ten $5 payments through PayPal, and will now use the money to adopt the gorilla infant from the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund website.

I'll provide all sponsors with a copy of the Adoption papers when they are issued, and I will of course give full credit to each of you on a future blog post.

The sponsor list is now full, but if you would like to adopt your own gorilla or simply make a donation, please visit the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund website.

** The order has been placed, and I have received an email from the DFGF that processing has begun... I look forward to revealing the name and picture of our adopted infant very soon! Thank you EVERYONE!

Aww. I was planning on being one of the sponsors, but if you have other plans in adopting more gorillas, let me know.

Brilliant! Nice to do something which actually means something in honour of Douglas Adams.

Thanks Gareth!
