We Love Bonobo Pants!

Last year, www.bonobos.com became one of our corporate sponsors. In case any body hasn’t heard of them, they make the most stylish pants around. The first pair of pants I’ve bought Brian that actually fit!

Bonobos.com adopted three bonobos last year, and in response to the food crisis, I got an e-mail from the president, Andy, who said they would donate $1 for every new customer! That means they are sending us another $6,000 in addition to the $1,720 they’ve already sent us, which is a fifth of the budget for the food shortfall!!

To show our gratitude, we did a photo shoot for them, featuring (what else?) the Congo pants, and stylish 100 percent organic cotton T-shirt. The pants were modeled by Brian, and introducing our female models: Waka (licking Brian’s head), Sake (peeping between Brian’s legs), and our very own Kata (fishing around in Brian’s pocket).

Like Tyra says on “America’s Next Top Model,” “Find the light, girls, find the light.”

Donations

We are roaring along on our food donations and are now up to a total of $11,348 for the $33,000 short fall. We’ve also had some larger sponsorships, so I’ll send those through shortly!

Thank you to Stuart L., who donated $150, Our WLD faithful blog follower Dina C. who donated $140, Wendy B., Francis B., Stephani A., Lee Shane, Elizabeth Burston, and Robin Zimmerman who all donated up to $50 and finally to David Bendelman who adopted Lomela on behalf of Polina Labovskaia. You’re all wonderful, thank you.

Wow, more than $11,000 in three weeks – and to think that at our Friends of Bonobos board meeting last july, we only had eight people who had sponsored bonobos!!! Thank you all so much. More update on the food situation soon. Hopefully Lomela won’t have to go without bananas!!
