A Simple Act Can Create Big Change

Posted by Lisa Franzetta, ALDF's Director of Communications on October 21, 2009

We’re at the halfway mark in America’s Giving Challenge, and the $50,000 victory is within our reach–but ONLY with the financial support of each and every one of our supporters! If every one of you reading this blog donates just $10 right now, “Abuse an Animal, Go to Jail!” will rocket into first place TODAY! Imagine how many animals we could help with the $50,000 prize–and all it would take is for each one of you to donate $10–no more than the price of a couple of cups of coffee. We cannot do it without YOU!

Now is the time to take action!

  1. Go to the Cause “Abuse an Animal, Go to Jail!”

  2. Select donate (if you don’t have a Facebook account, choose the "Donate Without Facebook" option)
  3. Donate $10, and invite all your friends and family to do the same (you can only donate once per 24 hour period)

If you can donate more than $10, please give $10 on different days so that each of your donations counts towards the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s total number – bringing us one step closer to winning $50K. You can only donate once per 24 hour cycle, and the cycles go from 3pm Eastern time to 3pm Eastern the following day.

Here are other ways you can help:

  • After you donate, please post our Cause on your Facebook wall if you have a Facebook account, and urge all of your contacts to donate just $10!
  • Make it your goal to personally recruit one of your contacts today to join the Cause “Abuse an Animal, Go to Jail!” AND to make a $10 donation.
  • Forward this message to any friends or family before the challenge ends on Thursday at 3pm (EST)!
  • Check back over the next two weeks for updates about animals who deserve justice–a kitten burned alive by two teenage girls; a horse viciously beaten by a man and his daughter; a dog savagely dragged through the street to his death. In the most tragic cases, all we can now offer to these animal victims is justice. Please help us in this critically important fight and donate $10 to “Abuse an Animal, Go to Jail!” each day you check back!

It’s not often that we have a chance to win $50,000 to help animals–let’s not pass up this incredible opportunity!
