Unsuccessful

Today was the day for the March of Dimes leafleting event at Bob Noble Park from 8:30-10:00...It was ver unsuccessful, only Crystal and I showed up and we got kicked out after about ten or fifteen minutes. The local head of the March of Dimes was very rude to us in saying that "PETA is never welcome here !" and "If it wasn't for animal testing we wouldn't be here right now". He told us that we had to leave and that anything with PETA on it was not allowed to have any part in the March of Dimes...He was as rude as Jason Watkins ! Besides the local head of M.O.D., everyone else was glad to hear our message. We handed out a few leaflets and earmark stickers and alot of people were glad that we were standing up for the lives of animals and babies. They were also glad that we were letting them know whats going on, and that we encouraged them to still walk but earmark their donation. I think we could've done a better job if we had one or two more people...But oh well, I just hope we get a better turnout for our upcoming KFC demos.

The Hallelujah Diet

If any of you are interested in going vegan, you should check out www.hacres.com, which is the Hallelujah Acres website, a site devoted to information about the Hallelujah Diet. It's pretty extreme, but promises to heal virtually any ailment through diet alone. They follow a strict vegan diet, mainly focusing on raw fruits and vegetables. I tried to follow it for a few weeks before I got pregnant, but it left me hungry, because I eat a lot. Anyway, thought I'd pass that along!

Successful KFC Demonstration !

As you all know, C.A.R.E. recently held a demonstration against the food-chain Kentucky Fried Chickenon Jackson Street in Paducah from 11:30-1:20. Even though it was cold outside we got our message across loud and clear to the citizens of Paducah that cruelty to chickens is NO JOKE. Of course we got the occassional stare and laughs along with some mocking, but other than that, we received positive praise from all the Paducahans. We only had three people at the protest, which I am VERY dissapointed in ! We usually have a great turnout for the meetings, but when it comes to demos people suddenly dissapear...

T-Shirts

As everyone knows, C.A.R.E. is getting t-shirts ! I will be going Monday to River Graphics:
I don't have an estimate on the shirts yet, I'll get that Monday, if you want me to change your size or the way your name is spelled, e-mail me (VeggieBoy82@aol.com)
I went over everyone's feedback from the e-mails and the consensus was green shirt with purple writing. The front is going to have a big purple "V" with "Citizens for Animal Rights Education" written in white (it'll show up better). Then on the right sleeve we will have our name, then a purple ribbon with "AR" on it. Then on the back we will have our mission statement, "As citizens for Animal rights education, our mission is to educate the public on animal rights issues, how it effects their everyday life, and what they can do to change animal cruelty. CARE operates on the simple principle that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for enteratinment."
The T-Shirts will be, if I remember correctly, $10.87....WHAT A DEAL !!!
