On the 27th of March, volunteer Pascale Kahn and friends from Pymble Ladies' College organised a ‘Wear Orange for Orangutans Day’ along with a stall selling merchandise and palm-oil-free foods in order to raise funds and awareness for The Orangutan Project.
It was a great success, with almost $2,000 raised and the entire school wearing orange to support the cause.
We also had our RSPCA Million Paws Walk stall in Homebush, on 17th May, organised and ran by Jenny Donnelly our merchandise & Adoptions co-ordinator & TOP volunteers. Also, on May 9th, Peter, Lynda, Deb and Anne had a stall at Hornsby for Mother's Day! They raised $1250 including 4 adoptions. They also sold around 20 of our new orangutan bags at $7.00 each, and gave one to people as an incentive for sales of $50 and over, so very successful day!
The Art Exhibition's results and story will be in the next ENews AND thanks to everyone who is helping TOP in nsw!
