Jambo! Sha Sha the chimp here! Spokes-chimp for 42 other chimpanzees at my home, chimp village at the Wildlife Waystation in Los Angeles County, California - It costs $29.95/a day to feed and care for each chimp. Money from my fundraiser will be used for chimp village enclosure enrichment and improvements. Please Help me Help my Village. Asante!
Sha Sha, the chimp, and her 42 companions at the Wildlife Waystation are going bananas over a recent gift from golden girl Betty White. As spokeschimp, Sha Sha recently launched a fundraising campaign to raise $150,000, and White, a long-time supporter of the organization, made a challenge grant. White will match donations, $1 for $1, up to $20,000. Money from Sha Sha’s fundraiser will be used for enclosure enrichment and improvements for Chimp Village and for the care of the chimps.
"I have been supporting the wonderful work at the Wildlife Waystation for 35 years,” White said. “It warms my heart to help Sha Sha help her chimp mates. So, I encourage others to go ape with me! Please support my challenge.”
