What teens and kids can do for the animals

1. During school you can educate others by doing research projects. Writing
papers on the cruelty free is a great way to helping make this a more compass-
ionate world to live in, and help educate others. If this sounds like anything you
would like more information on, please e-mail [email protected] for additional

2. Is there a animal rights organization in your area? Ask your local group if you
can assist them in planning a demonstration outside the closest P & G Facility or
in front of a local department store that continues to carry P & G products.

3. Could you start a youth group. Most people love animals, maybe a few of your
friends could focus on your community and how you can help educate others on
cruelty free products, and contact local stores, media, etc and educate them on
the horrors of animal testing. You can contact IDA for literature and brochures on
P & G's animal testing, and include this in your presentation or local protest letters.

4. Boycott all Proctor & Gamble products. This is easy and very effective consid-
ering that profits come first for them. Taking away their profits will force them to
listen, so use your purchasing power! Every time you buy a product, you send a
message to that company. Make your message loud and clear --- that you will
only buy products that are cruelty-free. If enough people do this we'll see only
cruelty-free products in the future, and that means less suffering for animals. For
a list of cruelty-free companies, visit IDA's website at and
follow the directions to the Proctor & Gamble Campaign.

5. Use the power of the pen! Write to companies that still test their products on
animals and let them know that you won't buy their products until they stop. Inform
family & friends of the torturing of animals in Proctor & Gamble's labs. Ask them
to join in the boycott and convince them to write letters of their own. Write to your
Senators and Representatives urging them to support animal protection legislation.

6. Spread the word! It's as easy as wearing a button on your shirt. You can raise
the awareness of hundreds of people.

7. Arrange to have a speaker knowledgeable about animal protection talk at your
library or club.

8. You can join In Defense of Animals (IDA). It is group of people who are against
animal testing. For a small fee to join (which is used as a donation and is tax
deductable) you will receive a monthly bulletin and other interesting literature.

By joining IDA you will assist them in the fight against Procter & Gamble, support
their on-going campaigns and most of all help make this a better world for the

9. Call Proctor & Gamble's toll free line at 1-800-543-0485. Keep talking as long
as you can because they have to pay for the call! The longer you keep them on
the line the more money they lose. Call while passing a pay phone. Be creative!
