Merry Christmas

As this Christmas 2011 day dawns, our hearts are moved by love, appreciation, gratitude and wonder for the year that has been.  The greatest gifts of love, hope and strength have been bestowed on our residents by friends, new and old.  New volunteers, new supporters and new people stepping forward, voting for SBFPS in the Aviva Challenge.  As the saying goes "friends we have not met yet".. We did not make it through to the Finals, but the feel we have "won" so much along this journey.  Even in our wildest dreams we could not have dreamt of this year - Pockets Warhol becoming known world-wide and bringing awareness to the sanctuary.  Our hearts are full as we reflect on our devoted volunteers, Ann, Jen, Little Jen, Leslie, Sam, Kim, Charmaine, Izzy, Erica, Melissa, Jeannine, Vanessa, Sepi, the list goes on.  We are so blessed to work alongside Sherri, an inspirational woman, who deals with many demands, personally, professionally in her police work, and still has the will, love and determination to make the lives of the monkeys her priority and give them the best life. 

May we all reflect on the blessings and gifts we each receive!

Merry Christmas everyone!
