“…one of the most dedicated, and perhaps the most inspiring, friend of the chimps is 10-year-old Brandon Wood. Through his blog, Make a Chimp Smile, Brandon is raising money for Save the Chimps Sanctuary and raising awareness for the Great Ape Protection Act to free chimpanzees from laboratories.
It all started last December, when Brandon started flooding his mom’s inbox with chimpanzee photos. He wanted one as a pet. But in the course of his research, he found the Save the Chimps Sanctuary website. He realized that chimpanzees belong in the wild or in sanctuaries, not in homes or labs. But he didn’t give up on the apes. Even if he couldn’t have one, he could still help one. “
