Thank You For The Help

To date this project has received $833 in donations. Our webmaster, David Forester, has a three year old 20” iMac desktop he needs to sell. Since my old laptop is on it’s last leg we offered to buy the new/used desktop for $800. David accepted the offer and brought the beautiful computer over last week, September 28th.
The new computer has a webcam so that in the future my colleagues will be able to actually see me rather than the old photo of me holding Chichas, the Two-toed Sloth we rehabilitated and released last year here at La Reserva.
This project is progressing thanks to all of you. Check out the photo of me sitting back in my office chair, a real slouch, at the new computer. Also a photo of David Forester, Daniel and me the day he brought the computer. We took it with a new software in this computer called Photo Booth. It really is like the old time booths we used to go into with our friends and do stupid stuff.
On October 12th Global Giving is once again offering their bonus incentive. There is $100,000 in matching funds, but the percentage matched is based on a graduated scale.  The more a you give, the higher the matching percentage and they're matching up to $2,500 per donor! This is a great opportunity to stretch your donation dollars even farther and help us finish our office upgrade. We still need a laptop and office furniture. Please give now and help this dream become a reality.
