I'd like to encourage each one of you to take the initiative and get out there to get signatures for the ballot initiative to allow pigs, hens and calves the ability to stand up, turn around, and stretch their limbs in California. Time is short -- we only have 50 days left, and over 500,000 signatures still need to be gathered. Every person's efforts are crucial for this one-time chance to help millions of animals. We are all busy and have lots of things going on in our lives, but if each of us takes a little time out for those animals who don't have a voice, we can and will make a difference!! Please go to
today and get involved with this campaign. If I still haven't convinced you, read an excerpt from an email from GISELLE, the
ORGANIZER of AVEC MES AMIS (animal rights meetup group in OC):
I KNOW THAT ALL OF YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE THAT ARE KIND AND CARE ABOUT ANIMALS...THAT'S WHY YOU'VE JOINED THIS AND OTHER ANIMAL GROUPS. THIS IS WHY I'M REMINDING YOU THAT THE TIME IS NOW TO TAKE ACTION.
WE ONLY HAVE 7 WEEKS LEFT TO PUT A MEASURE ON THE BALLOT TO HELP END THE SUFFERING OF 20 MILLION ANIMALS CONFINED IN FACTORY FARMS. WE HAVE ONLY ONE CHANCE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN, AND THE ANIMALS ARE COUNTING ON US.
THERE ARE MANY WAYS YOU CAN HELP. IF YOU WERE TO ONLY GATHER ONE SIGNATURE PER DAY, THAT WOULD CONTRIBUTE IN A HUGE WAY. HERE'S HOW FROM A MESSAGE FROM OC CAMPAIGN ORGANIZER, RONNIE STEINAU:
10 IN 10 AND TELL A FRIEND!!
Potential if you participate... 128,550 signatures in 50 days
All you need to do is get one signature per day!
With 7 weeks left in the campaign it is important to realize that your chance to help millions of farm animals statewide will soon be gone!
New Years Resolutions:
We need everyone to commit to "something". If each of us makes even a small effort to get 10 signatures we can produce thousands of signatures weekly!
I'M HERE TO HELP YOU HELP THE ANIMALS. THESE PIGS, CALVES AND HENS CANNOT LIE DOWN OR TURN AROUND IN THEIR CRATES THEIR ENTIRE LIVES. WE CAN CHANGE THIS!
BE A PART OF THIS LAW CHANGING, LIFE CHANGING INITIATIVE!
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A REGISTERED VOTER: ONE OF MY BUDDIES WAS THE MARKETING MANAGER FROM THE HUMANE SOCIETY, OUT HERE VISITING FROM MARYLAND. SHE COLLECTED SIGNATURES ALONGSIDE ME, AND THEN AFTERWARD HANDED THEM OVER TO ME.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE ABLE TO WALK: RONNIE STEINAU BROKE HER LEG SHORTLY AFTER STARTING TO GATHER SIGNATURES. ALTHOUGH SHE CAN'T DRIVE, SHE HAS GATHERED OVER
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE CREATIVE, ATTRACTIVE, SMART: LISTEN, WHATEVER YOUR SELF DOUBT IS, GET OVER YOURSELF! YOU'LL BE A BETTER PERSON FOR GETTING SIGNATURES AND GETTING INVOLVED!
NEED A HELPING HAND? NEED A RIDE? NEED FORMS AND WHAT TO SAY? NEED A KICK IN THE BEHIND? CALL ME:
[masked] GISELLE'S CELL.
THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE ORGANIZING SIGNATURE GATHERING EVENTS AND TRAINING. I WILL BE SENDING THAT INFORMATION OUT SHORTLY.
PEACE AND LOVE,
YOUR AVEC MES AMIS ORGANIZER
