Along with the many top activism stories I’ve shared in the past couple weeks, here are several more I keep forgetting to get to because I was saving them on email and not in my normal places. Check them out:
One Pig’s Story & World Farm Animals Day: “As World Farm Animals Day approaches, I am compelled to share with you the story of one pig whose struggle changed my life forever. I watched her suffer to death, and I can still vividly remember her screams of pain, her cries for help, her pleas to live….”
Save Dolphins from Dirty Oil: Last April, life for dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico changed in an instant. Instead of peacefully playing in the Gulf’s warm waters, they had to dodge an evil oil slick.

Not only does drilling in the fragile Arctic risk catastrophic spills, but burning that oil accelerates climate change. A stable global climate underpins the very systems we depend on to survive. Our friends at Oxfam estimate that global food prices will more than double in the next 20 years – up to half of that due to climate change. This isn’t an abstract issue – VW’s policies directly threaten life. Today you can help protect your planet and change VW….”
Fashioning Change: “When a purchase is made it is a “vote” for the practices of the companies we buy from. This “vote” can protect our health, the Earth, and human rights or be a “vote” that compromises our health, pollutes the environment, and perpetuates the use of sweatshops and child labor….”
