Birds and Breakin' Hearts
This week we have been reaching out to people all over the country about the brutal practices of animal testing and McDonald’s vicious treatment of chickens!
It’s hard to believe that Warped Tour 2009 is half way over; it seems like it just started. We’ve spent the past week in the hot and humid South. It’s been boiling in North Carolina, Florida, and Georgia, and we were right in the middle of it. Hey someone’s gotta tell folks about the painful and torturous tests that are inflicted on millions of rats, bunnies, and mice every year in cosmetic testing facilities. We’re proud to brave the heat in order to get people to think more deeply about the products they use and just how those products were deemed “safe for human use.”
Come to our table when Warped Tour rolls into your town and we’ll hook you up with free stuff! We’ve got cruelty-free shopping guides to help you find better cosmetic and body care products for you and the safety of our animal friends. The DVDs at our table feature such bands as Rise Against, Cobra Starship, and Chiodos talking about a variety of different animal rights issues that mean something to them. Of course, we also have our stickers! Everyone seems to love our stickers and even love putting them on their phones, hats, and faces. As long as you guys are spreading the word and promoting animal rights … we’ll continue to provide you with stickers! Deal?!
At our hometown show in Virginia Beach we even had our good friends Anti-Flag stop by to do a signing at our table!
I’m out for now! We’re heading North into Cincinnati, Detroit, and Chicago, so keep an eye open for us! I’m going to let Paige finish this baby off …
This week we hit up LA, Chico, Seattle, Edmonton, and Calgary with the 10 for 10 tour talking to hardcore fans about the routine cruelty McDonald’s practices on chickens, like being scalded alive in feather removal tanks. Our new pals from California, hardcore band The Ghost Inside, had some members sign the petition.
And Justice, singer of Trapped Under Ice rocked a McCruelty sticker during their set in Calgary.
We also made some new friends and visited with some old ones stopping to get some amazing vegan donuts along the way in Seattle!
Keep a look out for us the rest of the summer and sign our petitions to help!
