information with your friends and family, and invite them to sign the
fur-free pledge, too.

This Friday, we are officially launching our Fur-Free Campaign with the
first of a series of full-page advertisements in People magazine.
We'll deliver a simple message to the magazine's three million
readers: animals need their fur more than we do. We’re telling consumers
that they have the power to directly save animals by choosing compassion as
their fashion – because ultimately shoppers decide what’s hot and what
Put simply, wearing fur or fur trim contributes to needless animal suffering
and death, and all of us can help expose the hidden cruelty stitched into
every fur garment. Thank you for joining me in the fight to end the fur
