Wrappin' Up Warped Tour!
Well, we’ve reached the end of Warped Tour 2009. It seems like just yesterday we were starting the tour in Pomona and now 2 months later it’s over. Pretty crazy! We’ve had days of intense heat and humidity, downpouring rain and even a few days that were pretty cold. Throughout all the varying conditions we had a great summer with you all and we hope you enjoyed your time at Warped Tour as well.
We spent this Warped Tour raising awareness about the animals that are kept in labs while various cosmetic and household products are tested on them. It was our job this summer to inform all of you of the horrible practices and to tell you about the companies that do not test their products on rats, bunnies, or any other animals. During our 2 months on Warped, over 218,000 of you signed our petition to demand companies stop these barbaric experiments.
Plenty of your favorite bands from the tour gave us their support including Chiodos, Hit the Lights and Silverstein. Speaking of the latter, our friends in Silverstein stopped by our booth at the August 22 Chula Vista, CA, show to sign autographs for some their fans at the show. The fans had a great time and Silverstein was thrilled to meet all of you.
The wonderful people at Warped Tour put together a little goodbye video for all you wonderful supporters. Check it out! We’re in it, sort of … who do you think sports our shirt the best?
We’re all going home for a few weeks to rest up before heading back out on the road this autumn. What tours and campuses will we be on? Just check back in—we’ll be out soon with brand new petitions for you to sign and more ways to help animals! If you start to miss us too much, remember that there’s always lots to do to keep you occupied!
Hopefully your summer was as cruelty free as your hearts.
