Hi everyone,

I'm forwarding this to implore you (if it's within your means) to take advantage of the Mercy for Animals matching donation drive, which ends tonight.? I will personally match any donations made today from members of this group up to a modest $250 -- which in essence will TRIPLE your donation. :)? To confirm your donation with me and have it matched, please email your MFA receipt to [address removed] before 10pm EDT tonight.

I wanted to make sure that you saw this email I sent you last week. We are in the final hours of MFA's matching donation drive, which ends at midnight tonight! In these last few hours, I hope you will consider making a special tax-deductible donation to support Mercy For Animals' vital work. You can donate at:

Our goal is to raise $100,000 by midnight. We have raised $90,000 so far. Please help us close the gap. Thanks so much for your support!

Dear Friend,

Right now, at this very moment, hundreds of millions of farmed animals are suffering in silence. They desperately need your help - your voice - to end their misery.

You see, throughout our nation, factory farmers routinely subject animals to abuses so extreme and vile that they would be labeled criminals if dogs and cats were their victims. It's shocking, but in our country farmed animals lack the same basic legal protection from cruelty that our beloved companion animals receive. For the most part, factory farms get a free pass to abuse and exploit cows, pigs, and chickens exactly as they please.

It's a shame, but on modern industrialized farms, "food" animals are cut, mutilated, burned, thrown, kicked, ground up, disposed of, locked up, starved, chained, and slaughtered. By the billions.

Their suffering - and cries - often go unnoticed. Unheard. Unseen. And unreported.

And that's just not right.

But there is hope. Mercy For Animals is dedicated to turning around this heartbreaking situation. We are determined to give a powerful, uncompromising voice to abused and neglected farmed animals - perhaps the most harshly treated creatures on earth. Click here to watch a powerful new video, highlighting MFA's important work on behalf of these animals.

But we need your support to do it.

Throughout this month, I've been telling you about a special matching donation drive currently underway. One of our generous supporters has pledged to match, dollar-for-dollar, all donations up to $100,000 made by June 30th - for a total of $200,000!

This is an incredible opportunity to have your contribution go twice as far to support MFA's lifesaving campaigns - helping twice as many animals.

Thanks to an outpouring of support from our members, we have already raised just over $60,000. We need your support to help raise the remaining $40,000 within the next 7 days. Please, click here to donate now.

We need your support to expand our vital campaigns on behalf of farmed animals. In the coming year, we have ambitious goals for tackling farmed animal cruelty and promoting veganism, on a variety of fronts.

In the coming year, MFA aims to:

  • Expand our Undercover Investigations - By placing more investigators in the field, we can hold more animal abusers accountable. Our growing investigations department works with law enforcement to prosecute perpetrators, companies to adopt animal protection standards, and lawmakers to strengthen policies.
  • Support Vital Legislative Campaigns - MFA is playing a leading role in a historic ballot initiative in Ohio that will provide protection to over 27 million farmed animals each year - banning veal crates, battery cages and gestations crates.
  • Launch National, Youth-Focused, Pro-Vegetarian Advertisement Campaigns - With your support, we can bring our message into the homes of millions of young adults across the nation - exposing them to the abuses animals face on factory farms, and encouraging them to explore a vegetarian diet. Our ad campaigns have a proven track record of effectiveness and cost-efficiency.
  • Increase our Humane Education Programs - By positioning more educators inside high schools and colleges, we can educate and empower thousands of students to live and eat in a manner that respects all animals.

With you standing by our side, we can achieve these important goals - preventing cruelty, sparing lives, and moving us toward a more compassionate future.

MFA constantly goes head-to-head with multi-billion-dollar corporations, with vast resources and lobbying power. But time and again, MFA has proven to be effective and diligent in pushing for real, meaningful change on behalf of the animals these companies abuse and exploit.

We need you as a supporter to be a strong, unified front for the animals that suffer in silence, locked in tiny cages and stalls on filthy factory farms.

Please take advantage of the matching donation drive - which ends next week, on June 30th. This is an incredible opportunity to have your gift doubled - dollar-for-dollar. Click here to donate now. Your support, no matter how small, will go a long way in helping us reach our goals.

For the billions of animals suffering in silence - who desperately need your voice - I thank you for your kindness and compassion.

Very truly yours,

Nathan Runkle
Executive Director

P.S. Be sure to watch our powerful new video, highlighting MFA's important work. Then, please make a generous tax-deductible donation by June 30th - it will be matched, dollar-for-dollar! Please donate now.
