Our celebrity judges, Marcelo Pachecho and Gisela Smith Medina have made their choices and we are starting with our 4th place winner. The other winners will be announced during the coming hours.
Here is Debbie Brown’s entry:
My favorite part of the store was the store itself! How it started….to fill needs that the zoo wouldn’t/ couldn’t. To be able to add to the lives of the animals was amazing. And by adding I got so many great items and shared so many as well. My favorite…..Bonnie eating the newspaper which I titled recycle! Wore it to a beach bonfire in Malibu and people asked and I got to share the story of DCZoowalks, my friends and their work. So many people I have shared the story with through my luggage tags, post its, bookmarks and more.
One Bao Bao calendar led to friends in Merry and Allen which means the world to me.
This store created friendships throughout the world and fellowship and added to the lives of the animals at the zoo and everyone involved. And educated so many as well.
My dream was always a book with Allen’s photos and Marcelo’s wit. Not giving up on that one!
