Yes on Prop 2 - Watch Ellen DeGeneres 9-26-08
With just 5 weeks left before the election, we've got to do all we can now to get our message out far and wide and ensure that California votes YES! on Proposition 2 -- a modest anti-cruelty measure that will end the inhumane confinement of 20 million farm animals in tiny crates and cages where they can barely move for their entire lives.
Agribusiness corporations nationwide have poured millions of dollars into their deceptive campaign to fight Prop 2 - they want to keep the status quo and defeat this commonsense initiative that simply provides animals the room to turn around and spread their limbs. Millions of animals are counting on us to stop them.
Here are four important ways you can get involved in the campaign to pass Prop 2 this week:
Tune in to the Ellen DeGeneres Show tomorrow, September 26th -- Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, will be talking with Ellen about Proposition 2, and how it will help millions of farm animals in California and across the country.
Click here to see when the show will air where you live.
Watch our new video to hear straight from the, ahem, pig's mouth about how you can help farm animals. It's a funny animation, with a tune I bet you'll recognize, but don't get me wrong -- the heinous treatment of farm animals is no laughing matter.
Watch this short movie, then be sure to share it with everyone you know in California:
If you haven't already, I encourage you to join the hundreds who have joined the $20/20 campaign. The concept is simple, but the potential benefits for the campaign are staggering: Ask 20 friends and family to donate $20 each to help California's 20 million farm animals. Our online tools make it easy to create your own personal fundraising page. And with deep-pocketed agribusiness corporations spending millions to defeat this reasonable reform, the campaign desperately needs donations to get out the vote.
Join me in telling the world why you're voting YES! on Prop 2 this November. Make a short video expressing your support! Be creative, funny, or serious -- tape it by yourself or with your (furry) friends -- just be original! We'll have a celebrity judge choose the Grand Prize Winner, who will receive a sweet prize. The People's Choice winner, voted on by our supporters, will also receive a prize. All videos will be displayed on our YouTube page and shared amongst the YES! on Prop 2 website and social networks, like Facebook and MySpace.
And remember...it's so easy to make your own video -- just grab your cell phone or digital camera! You've only got until October 8th! Take a look at my own video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUYhKGifO5A
