Did you know that you share 96.4% of your DNA with orangutans? You can proudly show off this fact, by purchasing one of the t-shirts, as modelled by the lovely Tim on the right, from the Sumatran Orangutan Society’s online shop.
In addition to this, the Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS) are also holding some Jungle VIP auctions where you can win various items from celebrities, and one of these items is the shirt that Tim wore during his ‘Ready For This?’ tour! You can start bidding tonight from 8pm at the SOS’s eBay page.
Proceeds from the auctions and t-shirt sales will go to the SOS so that they can continue their work in helping protect the critically endangered Sumatran orangutans and the apes’ environment.
More information about the work they do, and about the other Jungle VIP auctions, can be found on the SOS’s Jungle VIP website.
Tim’s extending his stay in LA to play an intimate show at Largo at the Coronet on the 9th April 2012!
The venue holds a measly 280 people, so if you want to see this panda-eyed Australian up close and personal, you’d better get a move on as the show is already on sale!
Tickets are available exclusively online at Largo’s website here.
Tim is joining Eddie Izzard, Larry King, Jim Jefferies and many more at KROQ’s annual Kevin & Bean’s April Foolishness show on Saturday April 7th 2012 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles.
Tickets go on sale this Thursday, March 1st, at 10am PST via Live Nation.
For the full line up and further details, including ticket prices look here.
Ticket proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project and Cedars-Sinai Maxine Dunitz Children’s Heath Center NICU.
If you’re in the mood for some foolishness then act fast when this goes on sale, as it’s likely to sell out.
