There are several things you can do this Earth Day to
help the animals of the world.
* Go Vegan for a Day -- If you're vegetarian, go vegan
for Earth Day. You'll be saving lives, as well as natural resources
* Help the Homeless -- Donate food, time or money to
local no-kill shelters. This is puppy and kitten season. They need lots
* Charity -- Make a donation to a no-kill shelter or
animal rights organization, and make it a large one!
* Teach -- Teach people about the meat industry, fur,
leather, animal testing, puppy mills, hunting, fishing, etc. Many people
don't know the real deal. Ignorance leads to bad decisions. You might be
surprised at how much people don't know.
* Get the Kids into it -- Give your kids things to do:
clean litter around the neighborhood, collect cans and bottles for
redemption and donate the money, let them try new vegan meals, let them
"adopt" a cow, etc.
* Buy to Help -- Buy clothes, CD's, keychains, and other
items from charities.
* Become a Human Billboard -- Wear a shirt with a strong
animal rights message and post stickers and leaflets around public
Earth day is not just about honoring the physical planet
upon which we live, but also its inhabitants, human and non. By engaging
in these very simple activities, you will be helping Earth's creatures,
thereby living in the true spirit of Earth Day. And best of all, these
activities can easily be conducted within your everyday affairs.
