Mail the Trollsen Twins Your Hair

We’re a thoughtful bunch here at peta2. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have a birthday coming up, and we wanted to come up with a birthday present for them. We figured that since they seem to be in such dire need of extra hair on their bodies, why not donate some of ours to them?

Animals have no choice when they are skinned alive, clubbed, gassed, or electrocuted for their fur, but those of us giving hair to the Trollsen Twins certainly do have a choice. Want to wish Hairy-Kate and Trashley a Happy Birthday—while sending a compassionate message?

If you’re getting a haircut soon, or simply have a lot of hair in your brush, put that in an envelope along with a note that reads, “Please, use my hair instead of the animals’. Happy Birthday.” Mail it to the Trollsen Twins at the address found here. And of course, send a picture to StreetTeam@peta2.com so we can see your fine work! Check out what we’re mailing to the twins from peta2:


My good friend Paul got really into this mission. Check it out:


Is the idea of wearing human hair weird? Certainly—that’s the point. I’m sure if animals could speak human, they’d let us know (in some strongly-worded language) that it’s really weird that people wear animal fur—and awful, selfish, disgusting, and cruel, too.

PS – Do you think it’s any coincidence that the Trollsen Twins’ birthday happens to fall on Friday the 13th?

    I have to say that this is great. Sometimes being nice JUST DOESN’T WORK. It may take a little more stuff like this for the Trollsen twins to finall “like, get it”

    I just got my hair cut a few weeks ago…but I sent it to Wigs for Kids (another worthy cause, ne?). Do you think it would work if I cleaned out my cat’s brush and sent that as a belated b-day gift instead? It’d be like “Use what’s not being used.” or something… or would that just be compleatly irrevalent… Kitty’s hair is animal hair weather he’s useing it or not, right? But it would be a good use for all the Kitty(hair)stuck to my pillow…. Hmmm, it’s an idea.

    OMG!! I want to do that!
    that sounds like a good idea instead of them wearing ugly animal hides.
    they belong on the ANIMAL not the people. If people were meant to have fur woe’d have it now wouldn’t we?

    I’m doing it.
    I don’t see why they won’t give in and stop wearing fur. It’s so trashy looking. Yuck.

    That’s a hilariously awesome idea, I just cut off 13 inches for a different cause (making wigs for children with cancer, but with no profit to the organisation because they do animal research I wanted to help the kids without hurting the animals) last month though so I don’t really have any hair to spare :(

    sounds weird at first, but then again, wearing someone’s skin is just insane. and they ARE wearing hair, so really I’m only doing them a favor ^.^
    don’t have much hair being a boy, but I get points you say? hmmm I do like getting points ^_^

    I have plenty of hair to send ’em but, as I’m in the UK, by the time it arrives in America their birthday will have passed!

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
