Kids Worldwide Help Orphan Chimps

Dec 28, 2006-- Orphaned chimpanzees in Africa will get a new place to rest their heads thanks to the remarkable efforts of hundreds of young people: Third graders in Los Angeles raised $430 selling hand-crafted necklaces; Youth at a zoo in Sweden raised $1,500; 8 year-old Brandon collected jars of "chimp change" totaling $319.26 from local students at Eastern Illinois University. All of them were members of Jane Goodall Institute's Roots and Shoots program, and collectively raised $40,000 in 2006 for a new care facility for more than 120 orphaned chimps whose mothers and families have been killed by illegal poaching. Roots and Shoots is a global network of more than 8,000 groups in 96 countries that plan and implement community service projects on behalf of animals, the environment and the human community.
