primate greeting card

In honor of #GivingTuesday, a day devoted to helping others rather than heading out to the stores to buy more stuff (how many of us really need more), The Jane Goodall Institute has released the most adorable e-cards you can imagine. My favorite is the one above, but “Stick close to the ones you love” is definitely a close second.

Shawn Sweeney from The Jane Goodall Institute told us, “#GivingTuesday specifically calls people to consider their purchases around this time of the year, and encourages them instead of buying more stuff, to support their favorite causes. We have some of the best supporters out there and wanted to make #GivingTuesday something extra fun for all of us.”

Take a moment today to support your favorite cause, whether it’s endangered species like chimpanzees, clean water, human rights, farm animals or any of the other worthwhile issues out there that desperately need funding. Nonprofits can only do as much as their bank accounts allow them to. They depend on all of us to fund their work to make the world a better place. Who will you donate to today?

(And don’t forget to send a chimpanzee holiday greeting!)
