Disneynature’s CHIMPANZEE pre-screening GIVEAWAY- Toronto & Waterloo

I will be seeing this film and I’m excited about the movie AND the fundraising efforts Disney Canada is doing to help the Chimpanzees. Read more below to find out more. At the bottom is an awesome giveaway to attend a pre-screening of this movie.

On April 20th, just in time for Earth Day, Disneynature is taking moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with the release of CHIMPANZEE, a new true-life adventure that introduces us to the adorable young chimp named Oscar and his chimpanzee family. Featuring Disneynature’s signature breathtaking, never-before-seen footage, CHIMPANZEE showcases the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom.

In celebration of the film’s release, Disneynature has joined forces with the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada for a “See CHIMPANZEE, Save Chimpanzees” program where for every moviegoer who sees the film on opening week, a donation will be made to JGI Canada to help protect chimpanzees and their habitats, now and into the future.

In the spirit of the film, and to further do Walt Disney Studios Canada’s part to help protect these amazing animals, they are launching a “‘Like’ Us, Save Chimps” program on the Walt Disney Studios Canada Facebook page today – and we need your help!

If Walt Disney Studios Canada can reach 22,000 “likes” on their Facebook page (facebook.com/WaltDisneyStudiosCanada) by Sunday, April 22nd – Earth Day, they will adopt two orphaned chimpanzees through the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada’s Chimp Guardian Program. The two certificates of adoption will later be shared with their fans on their Facebook wall.

  1. I would want to see this movie with my niece and nephew to teach them how everything we do has a good impact or a bad impact and that we should be always be aware of what we are doing. It would be great for them to see that even though it doesn’t seem like they are doing much to help by just going to a movie but every little bit matters no matter how big or small. It would also be great to learn more about how they interact with each other in the wild:)

  2. I’d love to see this movie. It looks a bit heartbreaking but in a good way and seeing how chimps are more like humans than we really know will be fascinating. OMG – I am so going to cry at this one! Regardless of whether I win I’m so taking my kids to see this one.

  3. I have always been fascinated with chimpanzees and have also loved the many Disney nature movies we have seen – Oceans & Earth. They are beautifully done and always deliver a powerful and poignant message to share with our children. I would love an opportunity to share yet another great message with my kids — who by the way I know would delight in their antics too!

  4. May I ask who the winner for this was? Rafflecopter doesn’t say?
