I wish I could say it’s a snazzy new trend in cruelty-free makeup, but sadly, it’s quite the opposite. In fact, Wonder Dust may be the cruelest kind of “makeup” around.
Ringling Brothers’ “training” consists of beating elephants with steel-tipped bullhooks, sometimes until they’re bloody. Former Ringling employees report that handlers then cover the wounds with a gray powder called “Wonder Dust.” When placed on fresh cuts and punctures, Wonder Dust closely matches the elephant’s own skin color. Just when you thought they couldn’t be more shady, right? I “wonder” how these handlers sleep at night. Really.
Sadly, the elephants suffer from wounds, cuts and punctures whether people see them or not. That’s why it’s up to us, the general public, to stop paying for this to happen. More and more people are boycotting the circus, not to mention the many celebs that are speaking up for animals in the circus.

Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
