Gorilla Gala!

11-year-old Addy is on a mission to save the mountain gorillas. (Hey, just like us!)

Since first grade, she’s not only made t-shirts, posters, sold lemonade, and started a blog … she also hosts an annual Gorilla Gala with gorilla games, a raffle, a dunk tank (no humans were harmed!), crafts, and more.

“I want to get other kids as excited about gorillas and conservation as I am,” she says.

One of Addy’s more creative efforts has been her “pie in the face” challenge. For every $5 donation, she took a pie in the face to encourage not only raising funds, but to raise awareness.

Gorilla Gala 2019 (June) was a huge success — check out the photos below.

Addy — and all who support you — you’ve inspired us! Thank you for all you’re doing for the gorillas.
