Be Among the 1,000 Who Change the World for Animals by ScottVanValkenburg

As you may know, Bob Barker recently gave PETA $2.5 million to create a new nerve center for animal rights in Los Angeles. At the time that the Bob Barker Building was dedicated, Barker issued a challenge: He offered to donate an additional $2 million to match certain gifts to PETA—one of those gifts being new memberships. And that’s where you come in, even if you already are a member.

PETA always has more opportunities to help animals than financial resources to carry out the work. The new Bob Barker Building isn’t just about bricks and mortar. Just as PETA investigators go wherever change for animals is needed, PETA wants its staff members to be based wherever they can benefit animals the most. By relocating our International Grassroots Campaigns, Youth Outreach Campaigns, and Marketing departments to our new Los Angeles headquarters, PETA will have more space to grow and more power to carry out our mission. You can help us change the world for animals by supporting Bob Barker’s challenge.

If you are not yet a member, please step forward now with a contribution of $16 or more and support PETA’s work to end cruelty and promote respect for all animals and Bob Barker will match your gift. We are trying to recruit 1,000 new members by July 31 to kickstart our fundraising goals. You can become a PETA member by clicking here. Your donation will make a great difference because PETA is efficient as well as effective, with almost 81 cents of every dollar going directly to programs that help animals—and in this case, Bob Barker will double your dollar!

If you are already a member, please help us by finding one friend or family member who will step forward now for animals and have their gift matched by Bob Barker. You can help by sharing this blog post via Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail or in any other way that you can think of to help spread the word.

All current members receive a one-year subscription to PETA’s colorful and informative magazine Animal Times, which features great new vegan recipes, heart-warming stories about animals, and information on how you can help protect animals.

In the first three decades of PETA’s existence, we’ve seen great progress,but there is still so far to go. Won’t you seize this historic opportunity to build PETA’s membership so that we can continue to expose cruelty and act to end it? Please help PETA meet Bob Barker’s challenge and change the world for animals!

If you make a donation of more than $100 before July 31, not only will your generous gift be matched, you will also receive a signed copy of Ingrid E. Newkirk’s book One Can Make a Difference: How Simple Actions Can Change the World.  Here are the rules:

  • Receipts must be dated between June 11, 2010, and July 31, 2010, and must be received by PETA by August 15, 2010. E-mail us your donation receipts or mail them to the following address:

Name

c/o PETA
501 Front St.
Norfolk, VA 23517

  • Requesters must be U.S. residents.
  • Limit one book per household.

    I love the fact that Bob Barker just keeps on trying to spread the word , i am on a disability and do not have as many funds as I would like to have but I have 5 rescue cats all spayed and neutered and yearly shots and are treating like children which they are to me . I think in this world that I should get a bonus for NOT having children , I am pro animal and will always do my part to protect them and i am just devestated about the oil spill even though I am in Canada a long way away but this is just about ruined an ocean I can not even fathom it

    Right on, Sally! I too have 2 rescue dogs that are my children. The oil spill is worse than we can even imagine. We’re hurting mother earth and she’s crying tears of oil in the gulf. This should be a real wake-up call, if we only listen. I live in Pensacola, Florida. The oil is here on our beautiful beaches. It breaks my heart to think of all the innocent animals that have to suffer and die because of man’s stupidity.

    I applaud Bob Barker. He’s always been a champion for animals and we need more people like him who care about animals. I’ve been a PETA supporter for many years and we desperately need to end animal cruelty of all kinds.

    Bob Barker was always a classy and fantastic animal advocate just like myself.
    He has earned great respect with all of the animal organizations. Always remember what Bob Barker said on The Price Is Right; “Have your pet spayed or neutered.”

    Amazing grace! There are ALIVE people on this dead planet!
    Too bad I cannot make donations as I am pauper as well as 50% physically disable as a result of human torture. Even then I feel elated to learn there are people out there who voluntarily assists LIFE, which is God’s creation but not appreciated by man. I neither have money to donate nor the ability to bless you, so I pray to God to deliver His priceless Grace through people like you to make LIFE meaningful here on Earth. May God bless you with grand success with your noble mission.
