Jane Goodall on the Emotional Value of a Gift
Each present contains a unique message and decides how to deliver appreciation and gratitude. We asked our friend Jane Goodall about this and received exciting suggestions and inspirations.
Dr. Jane Goodall was born on April 3, 1934 in London and is a primate researcher, UN peace ambassador and environmental activist. She gains worldwide fame for her tireless dedication to animals, nature and humans. She is also the founder of the non-profit organization, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), which also works worldwide to promote respect for animals and humans, and for the conservation of species and nature.
WHAT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL YOU HAVE EVER GIVEN?
A plush sheep I received from blind magician Gary Haun for my birthday. Since then he has accompanied me to over 61 countries and has been caressed by more than 4 million people - because the inspiration is rubbing off.
WHAT VALUES MUST PRESENT A PRESENT FOR YOU?
That depends on the person to whom you want to present the present. It should express several values: gratitude, respect, appreciation, love and friendship.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE? WHY?

Something that the recipient appreciates and with which the one who combines a beautiful experience: a collection of poetry, photos or, for example, a porcelain figurine made by locals. Something that lasts long, nothing that decays: no food or flowers.
