If you know Rachael, then you know just how much she loves animals! A few months back, she heard about an amazing organization called Project Chimps. They're working to create a sanctuary in Georgia on 236 acres of land for rescued chimps who’ve been locked up in research labs their entire lives -- and to do her part to contribute, Rach hooked them up with a brand new kitchen!

Once completed, this new home will welcome up to 300 rescued chimps so that they can feel the grass, see the sky, and live the happy lives they should -- with a little help from us. Also pitching in to help are celebs Kat Von D, Adrienne Armstrong and Billie Joe Armstrong. Check out the video above to see the incredible work they’re doing, and click here to learn how you can help support these beautiful creatures.
