Hello buddies. How’s freedom fighting for the animals going this week? It’s been pretty good for me, and I’ve even got a trip planned out to Portland, so I’m excited for that. I’ll be screening I Am An Animal at Portland State University for free, so drop me a line if you need details. We can totally hang out and eat vegan doughnuts.

The point of this blog, though, is to announce the winner of the peta2 video contest. After reviewing dozens and dozens of great entries, I’m happy to announce that Claudia from Miami, Florida, has won the contest. Along with this honor, she’ll get her own chicken costume and some rad merch from our store. Claudia’s video, “Leave Chickens Alone” defends chickens in a creative way that plays off of the viral video “Leave Britney Alone” by Chris Crocker. I think it’s brilliant. What do you think?

Here’s her video:

Claudia tells me that she loves Oldies music and speaking up for animals and the environment. She first got interested in animal rights after hearing about the Iams Cruelty campaign, and she continues to also be interested in that as well as campaigns against PetSmart and KFC. She’s not even halfway through her time in high school, so I know she’ll influence a lot of other students in the next few years.

Congrats, Claudia, and thanks to everyone else on the Street Team who entered! The videos were really inspiring, so make sure you send them to all your friends so they can see your great work.

    Very amusing but, just like Chris Crocker, a little bit irritating too!

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.

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.
