They are as smart and capable of joy, pain and dispair as our dogs and cats. We can give them a better life, every action, every meal is a choice that makes a difference.
Give Hope to Animals is a new peer-to-peer campaign to raise funds and awareness for Mercy For Animals' mission to end the exploitation of animals for food. Across the country, people like me are joining forces to fund Mercy for Animals' mission to construct a kinder food system and make the world a better place for farmed animals.
Let's imagine that world for a moment. Picture yourself riding through the countryside. Those long metal sheds that used to confine thousands of smart, sensitive animals in miserable conditions have transformed into greenhouses nurturing fresh produce. Rivers and streams run clear, and wildlife flourishes. The nearby small town has sprung back to life. Our planet is a little cooler. Species extinctions have slowed. Our healthcare system is unburdened. Fears of pandemics and antibiotic resistance have dissolved. Factory faming is universally recognized as a cruel, failed experiment. A new food system built on kindness has taken its place.
You can make the world brighter for farmed animals—and bring us one step closer to a truly compassionate food system—by making a donation to Mercy for Animals on my behalf. Your gift will fund innovative work like Mercy for Animals' Transfarmation project, which helps factory farmers transition to growing crops; undercover investigations that drive major institutional policies to ban the worst abuses inflicted on animals; and campaigns to expand plant-based food options on menus and supermarket shelves.
Thank you for your generosity today and for giving hope to animals.
