Save the Chimps, Please

Alison.jpg I just took down the post I put up this morning because I remembered I wanted to post about Save the Chimps. I started donating to them last year, but this year the Arcus Foundation is matching donations up to $500,000 up until December 31st. So, if you give $100 it’s like giving $200, but it’s only for a couple more days. If you’d like to donate, click here.

It’s heartbreaking, the lives they’ve led, which you can read about on their website, if you can stand it. I know people are suffering, children are suffering, but their suffering isn’t any less. We need to help everything that lives, I think, and try not to grade each species in value. Pain is pain and one only has to look into their eyes to see they are feeling it just as we do. (And fear. There’s one touching photograph on their website of a chimp holding onto the cage, afraid to let go and be free.)
