Dear PS107 Families,
I am delighted to share with you a letter from the Resident Agent in Charge of the Fish and Wildlife Service, US Department of the Interior, commending our students and families for conservation efforts to save rhinos. Agent Santel read about Cinco de Rhino and the work our Beast Relief committee is doing and, as a rhino lover himself, felt compelled to write to thank us. Please see his letter attached.
We are indebted to Ali DeRosa and Erica Jensen for coming up with the brilliant idea of having Cinco de Rhino Lemonade Stands which raised over $3000 for the International Rhino Fund in one weekend, and to Katherine Eban, the founder of the Beast Relief Committee. Their work and commitment to endangered animals is truly inspiring.
