I caught a documentary on Chimpanzees on PBS a while back, http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/chimpanzees/.
I was on the website of one of the organizations the show mentioned, www.savethechimps.org. They mention the need for crafty stuff on their website and I thought of Craftster.

Make decorations. The chimps in New Mexico don't have much of a view, so we hang decorations outside their cages to brighten up their home. We have volunteers who make wall hangings, wind chimes, and other decorations that we use. If you are artistic or creative and would like to make decorations for the chimps, please send them to our site in New Mexico where they will be hung up for the chimps to enjoy!
They also ask for non-toxic paints & supplies, books, magazines, stuffed toys, and other items that crafty folks might have on their wish list:
