Over the past week, news outlets across the country have been covering the story of 6 people and a dog who are believed to have been murdered over an X-Box. We received word from Street Teamer Jonathan Gleason’s mother that he was among the 6 human victims. Obviously this has made the mood around the PETA office a little somber.
We feel that we should honor this amazing young man for the positive things he accomplished in his time on this planet, in order to cast some positive light on this tragedy. Jonathan dedicated his life to making the world a better place for all animals, so in his memory, PETA2 is sending a call to action to all our Street Team members around the world, asking you to make Monday, August 16, an international day of action in JonathanÌs name.
Whether you download some leaflets and head out to your local KFC, post peta2.com Web banners all over the Internet to spread the word, organize a showing of “Meet Your Meat” for your family and friends, or write a letter to the editor about the link between violence to animals and violence to humans, please take some time to continue the work of one of our most dedicated Street Teamers. Mark your actions “Jonathon Gleason action” when you submit them for points on August 16, and weÌll give you double the usual number of points.

The Alternative Press picked up the scoop on Juliette Lewis and the Licks’ letter to KFC and even linked to PETA2’s feature. Check out the AP article here.
Krystal Guerra, known as “cubanveganhippie” on the boards, is the latest Street Teamer to get a letter to the editor published. You can read her letter by clicking here. Good job Krystal.

I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

"It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
