Challenging all animal advocates!
I’ve always loved Peaceful Prairie’s blog posts for their moving, beautiful, and often tear-jerking renditions of the lives of the sanctuary’s animals through the animals’ eyes.
When an e-mail from Peaceful Prairie popped into my inbox this afternoon, I knew I had to share with you the campaign the Sanctuary’s embarked upon to promote greater awareness amongst Vancouverites and in the Greater Vancouver Regional District of the suffering of dairy cows and caged and free-range hens.
Here’s an excerpt from their e-mail:
Thanks to generous donors who have pledged $5,000 to this campaign, we now challenge all animal advocates to help us expand the reach of these ads to city buses and online ads which have the potential to reach millions of people.
Please help us secure these ad placements with a generous contribution today.
Imagine the power of teaching the person sitting at the breakfast table with the morning paper, while reading the Milk comes from a Grieving Mother ad, and having that person suddenly realize that they will no longer be the cause of so much suffering.
Commuters will be told the truth about egg production and stop being duped into being complicit in the mass murder of baby roosters and spent hens. They’ll realize that switching to eggs labeled “cage-free” or “free-range” are NOT a “humane alternative” despite what the producers would have them believe.
These ads are groundbreaking in their honesty and powerful in their advocacy for the billions of farmed animals who are trapped in the line of production.
And here’s a picture of what one of the commuter ads looks like in action:
Like these ads in the New York Times, they’re hoping to place ads in the local news dailies, and such ads can be very expensive.
What wouldn’t I give to walk into work one morning and open up the Vancouver Sun to one of these ads!
For a moment, try to imagine the amazing impact this campaign could have in the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of factory farmed animals. The ads could help achieve so much in our common goal of ending the suffering of animals.
Please, if you can contribute to the campaign fund, even if you have a few dollars to spare, click on this link right now to donate whatever you can to help this very effective cause. Every dollar counts, and Peaceful Prairie is one of the most deserving recipients I know of.
