Safe journey my friend! Hope your days are full of the best kind of adventures!
Bon Voyage my friend. Have a great trip and fun.
I'm going to SWEDEN (Stockholm & Linkoping) from June 8 to 13, I'm taking my computer with me, but I don't know how much time I can spend working on it.... Hugssssssss and kisses to everybody, my friends!!!!!!!
I'm sorry, but I haven't more friends to invite to join the Group, because I have already invited all my friends.
I'm still in SWEDEN, in Stockholm, weather has been beautiful: 27 deg C!!!!!!!!
Tomorrow morning we are going back home to Rome!!
Hello Michela,have a safe trip home and glad you had fun1! I'd like to visit Rome someday when I have the time/money to go.I hear it's wonderful!
I'm back HOME in Rome!!!!!!
HELLO MICHELA, I INVITED ALL MY FRIENDS!
Today I'm back in Rome from Sweden (August 17 to 23)!!!!!!! Weather here is terribly HOT: 38 - 40 degrees!!!!! I miss Swedish weather!!!!!!!!!
A salute to you Michela for the interest you have generated for this most important issue. We appreciate the huge effort you are making on the Orangutans' behalf. Janet x
Thanks for the invite Michela I will send out invites to this group
I've invited my friends.
Sent out more invitations, hopefully to pick up the newer friends I haven't already invited.
"Invitations will be sent to all of your friends who have not been recently invited."
At the Taman Safari animal hospital in Indonesia abandoned orangutan Nia have no problem snuggling with Sumatran tiger Dema. In this sanctuary they enjoy the same activities as their wild brothers and sisters. I think they are adorable!
invitations have been sent
i sent invites to all of my friends
the whole earth was covered in water,would an ocean be enough?
Would love to SAVE THESE MAJESTIC ANIMALS FROM EXTINCTION
my page title is save the tigers, I'm starting to think,not enough undeserving humans,
no matter how many we get, will be able to correct the heartless legacy of abuse and underappreciation of the beauty and importance of our wild world.
maybe,it's a mental disorder with some people, where they just can't or won't come to terms with their negative or apathetic effect on the animal world.
I hope I don't live to see the end of these incredible wonders of the earth.
After seeing that picture of that poor elephant in bondage for people's amusement; I AM REALLY STARTING TO WONDER.
Hi.My friends list doesnt seem to be working.I will have to try another way.Is this group on facebook? I have loads of friends on there but dont know all their e-mails.Thanks
I just invited my friends. I hope they will join and help.
Thanks for all you do Michela and other friends here!
Dear Michela and all friends,
I was not sure where to post this; here, under multiple topics, or as a personal message.
On September 22, 2011; I selected the "Invite all my friends who have not recently been invited" option. 97 invitations went out. I copied, pasted and printed my list of invitations onto paper and compared the names with those on the (NEW 9/11) Members list. I found 9 with matching first name and surname initial and number of friends + 1 with matching first name and surname initial but number of friends does not match so it may not be the same person.
The success rate is not very high - about 10%. I am not sure if it would have been better to go to every friend's profile and click the "invite to group".
I have a lot of Care2 "friends" who have not signed my kangaroo petitions. (I can only check my 2nd petition and only for people with a complete surname on their profile).
It is not necessary to compare all my friends but just those who received invitations since some may have already been members of the "ORANGUTANS - Men of the Forest" group. I hope that the system is foolproof and that it sent invitations to all who had not received them previously.
Michela, I can send you a list of the names that I matched up as having joined due to my invitation in a personal message. Pleased let me know if you wish me to do so.
I hope that these statistics are of interest.
- Simon, to see if they belong to this Group it is easy to be checked in their Profile, under the: Groups item.
- "Invite your friends that have not been invited yet" is what I do 4 or 5 times a day, as always new friends have been invited by me every day.
- Otherwise sending my standard Invitation Text directly to the person, it's more difficult as I have 1800 friends.....
Group refers to: Indonesian OrangUtans,Tigers, Elephants, Rhinos, Wildlife, Biodiversity -Not only Orangutans in the 6,514 Care2 Petitions I signed since June2010 were all kinds of Animals. There are several General-AnimalGroups from a Dog to a Bison where to Post “other”Petitions. I am humble enough to realize I cannot save all Earth’s Animals in this Group, that has a specific
..Subject&Space. I ‘d never Post “my” OrangutanPetition in Groups for Pets/Horses/Cats; JaneGoodallGroup rejected it:for Orangutans,Primates,not Chimpanzees/Gorillas. I’d have liked to create another Group for Chimpanzees but going to bed at 4:00-5:00a.m. I must accept my limits.Please! don’t say -as the lady that Unjoined before+Deleted friend- that I care Onlyfor Orangutans
Thanks for the invite Michela just happy to be able to save more animals!!!
Hi ya Mic,
I HAVE POSTED NAME & E-Mail ADDRESS IN "COMMENT" SPACE
FOR NEW MEMBERS TO FIND THIS GROUP~
BREAK OUT THE " WELCOME " MAT
FaceBook Disabled my Account in May2010!!! When on FB, I recruited more than 3,500 to my Animal/Environmental Causes (OrangutanOutreach, OrangutanLandTrust, Don't Palm Us Off, JaneGoodall Inst., TheCove, Rapes in Congo, etc) I had 3,000 Friends & made Donations for $635. I LOST EVERYTHING when FB Disabled my Account (Entered the Care2 Community thereafter:June2010). FB Disabled my ACCOUNT because I was posting my Link to “my” Petition for Orangutans, Tigers, Elephants, Wildlife, Biodiversity, Rainforests, “Label PalmOil"(On my Profile) for which I worked hard, even 10 hrs/day, since when my UK friend Ryno Nel wrote it & I signed it for 3rd. FB considered it as a SPAM declaring I violated their rules!! Isn’t it more probable that the "PalmOil"/Oil/Logging Lobby(Corporations) defend their Money/Greed Interests?? Same days: FB blocked also the Petition Against BP(the Gulf Disaster)!! Even if they DISABLED me: my Orangutan Petition reached Total 6,445 Signs!!! Afterwards it was awaiting decisions by the EUParliament.
If I DISAPPEAR also from Care2........... you know why!!!!!!!!!!!!!! michela
Invitations will be sent to all of your friends who have not been recently invited.
Thank you Michaela, I am proud to be a member of your group. I will try to get more members for this group.
I just invited everyone I could think of. Hope you get a lot of new members. Happy traveling Michela.
I think I finally spelled your name right.
and I have invited all my friends!
Public pressure is crucial!!
My invitation's personal message:
Please join this excellent group! The owner, Michela, is dedicated to saving Orangutans and Tigers from extinction, mainly due to rainforest destruction for planting palm oil. You'll learn a lot by being part of this group, and your help will be greatly appreciated. Especially by the animals whose existence is in Immediate Peril.
If not interested in joining groups at this time, no need to reply.
However, I urge you to seek out related petitions and give your voice to the voiceless.
With best and most sincere wishes,
"I'm only a single DROP, ALL together WE are an OCEAN" inspired me, but except for a few Members, my continuous requests to Members to "INVITE friends" are not followed.
But I still continue going to bed at 4:00-5:00 a.m. for Endangered Species & Signed 6,880 Care2 Petitions since June 2010, as I'm convinced that WE MIGHT make the Difference...
-Please don't Open New Topics!!!!! Add as Comments in the related Thread There are problems of SPACE! I had to ASSEMBLE SEVERAL Petitions in the SAME Topic!!!.
-Comply with the Subj. of this Group, i.e. Southeast Asia / Palm Oil (also in other parts of the World). Don't post for whatever kind of animals Thank you!!!
Going to UK tomorrow, until Tuesday!!! I'm going with Jasmine, to meet her Grandfather, in Blandford Forum, Dorset, and Grandmother in Weymouth, Dorset. Alan, my husband is already in UK, in Portsmouth. I'm obviously taking my computer with me.....
I am in UK, coming back home to Rome on Tuesday night. I'm in Southampton, at the Marriott Meon Valley Hotel and Country Club. I'm with Jasmine, to meet her Grandfather, in Blandford Forum, Dorset, and Grandmother in Weymouth, Dorset. Alan, my husband, was already here, as he works in Portsmouth. I obviously took my computer with me..... Hugs to everybody!!! Michela
I am back home in Rome from UK!!!! Jasmine is staying in London with her boyfriend, until Monday.
When I created this Group I didn't think to POST Petitions to get a feedback from Members. As I state in my invitation: Petitions are here AVAILABLE for everybody to be Signed.
Then I realized that results are obtained if I POST them!!!
But if I POST:
MANY complain to get too many Emails, UnjoinGroup & DeleteFriendship!!! (I don’t delete friendship (e.g.) to Cher/SimoneD. because I get pages of messages&hellip. What shall I do???
Have a happy Women's Day from our closest female Cousins: Orangutans & Chimpanzees, sharing respectively 97 & 98 % DNA with Women

from Debbie Williamson: As a child I often visited the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo with my family or classmates, and still recall those fond memories. In 1998, I realized it had been almost 20 years since my last visit, so I felt the urge to grab the camera and re-live those past excursions. One of the trip's highlights was a young female Orangutan rolling around within her burlap "sleeping bag", and performing for the smiling crowd. She then seemed to pause for a moment, allowing the shutterbugs to snap off a few memorable photos.
from Cindy R.: HI MICHELA, I LEARNED FROM A FRIEND ALL ABOUT YOU & ALL OF THE WORK YOU DO FOR ME & MY RELATIVES, & ALL OF THE OTHERS WHO LIVE HERE IN THE FOREST! I JUST WANT TO SAY A PERSONAL THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR ALL THAT YOU DO FOR US! MUCH LOVE & MANY, MANY HUGS, BABY ORANGUTAN XOXOXOXO
