We wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you who made Dr Jane’s 84th birthday on April 3rd so meaningful. We were overwhelmed by your messages of support and received almost $4000 in donations which will go a long way towards providing hygiene kits in our Peer Education program that will enable Ugandan girls to stay in school, supplying baby formula for infant chimps at Tchimpounga and helping grow our Australian youth-led Roots & Shoots groups.
Dr Jane spent her birthday in Chicago with more than 80 young women from Chicago Public Schools and delivering the annual keynote address for the Field Museum’s Women in Science group. She was then feted as the guest of honour at an evening birthday celebration in the main hall of the Field Museum – which included the reveal of a statue made in tribute to the moment in the jungle that led her to this point.
If you want to send a belated birthday message to Dr Jane and financially support her ongoing work, please join us in giving her a special gift today to demonstrate how much we recognise and celebrate all that she has accomplished and how dedicated we each are to bringing about the harmonious planet she envisions. Thank you again and Happy Birthday Jane!
