Shannon has been busy making the cutest necklaces, bracelets, magnets, rings, keychains and earrings, and I ordered postcards and photos. We brought our brochures, business cards, adoption certificates and signs and gave the island’s souvenir table a much needed facelift.
In the few short days we’ve been here, we have seen an amazing response! Just about everyone that visits has purchased a postcard, and most insist that we “keep the change.” Shannon has sold a few of her creations as well! It’s a great way to send people home with something to remember the island by, as well as another way to generate money. 100% of the proceeds go directly toward the monkey’s well being.
Gilberto is over the moon with excitement! He’s making us save all of the money we make and at the end of our trip, we are going to count it together.
