April The Giraffe's Baby Gets A Name

After several weeks of online voting, April The Giraffe's baby has an official name. 

People donated $1, which went to fund the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, Ava's Little Heroes, and the Animal Adventure Park in New York, just to pick from a list of names like: Apollo, Geoffrey, Gio, Harpur, Noah, Ollie, & Patch. 


In the end, the public voted that the caretaker, Allysa, pick the name, so she settled on "Tajiri" (Ta-Jeer-E). It's Swahili for hope and confidence. (MSN)
