A chimpanzee named Sha Sha and her 42 companions at the Wildlife Waystation are going bananas over a recent gift from Betty White.
The organization launched a fundraising campaign to raise $150,000, and the octogenarian, a longtime supporter of the organization, made a challenge grant, matching donations, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000.
The fundraiser will be used toward enrichment and improvements for the Los Angeles sanctuary 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."
