We should all try to go to the Disney movie "Chimpanzee" during the first week of it's release. Dr. Jane Goodall is not in the movie but she did consult in the making of the movie. A percentage of the ticket sale only during the first week will go to the Jane Goodall Institute. Her programs help children all over the world to get involved and implement community volunteer projects. She also helps programs which help protect Chimpanzees and the environment.
