Action Idea to help Chimpanzees

The recent undercover investigation by the Humane Society of the United States has been constantly on my mind. Just today I had a great idea: Light a candle and donate a dollar in support of retiring Chimpanzees from research.

In your community or on your college campus you can host a table that hands out candles to individuals for a dollar donation. If possible have them light it and set it in the same area. After time you will have a nice memorial in recognition of Chimpanzees that are forced to live their lives confined in research labs. By involving others you can create a huge impact and raise money to donate to the cause. For background information and a suggested recipient of donations please click on the links below.
