Student Group Wins peta2 Award
Remember Hannah DeZara and her awesome student group, Students for the Protection of Animals? They took a stand against the cruelest show on Earth by protesting Ringling Bros. circus and passing out leaflets outside the show in Chicago!
Well, this group definitely knows how to stay loud for animals. Check out everything that its members have done for animals since then:
- They organized a three-day vegan bake sale at school and used the opportunity to speak out against the cruelty of shark finning and fish farms.
- They spread the word about the suffering of animals in movies by urging friends and family not to attend The Hobbit.
- They created their very own public service announcement to promote World Animal Day!
- Most recently, they brought some holiday cheer to homeless animals in their local animal shelter by organizing a fundraiser at school—how cute is that?!
Yep, told you they were awesome. This is why peta2 is excited to give Students for the Protection of Animals a Star Student Group Award—way to go, guys! 😀
