Sunday is World
Kindness Day, and even if you don't need a reason to be kind, consider doing
something extra-nice for animals. It doesn't take much effort to make a world
of difference for animals, and animals who need help could be right in front of
you. Take a look around your neighborhood and see if there's a chained dog
who needs fresh water, or take this opportunity to clear your closet of leather
and your refrigerator of eggs,
and other animal products.
To recognize World
Kindness Day, we're giving away a signed copy of PETA President Ingrid E.
Newkirk's book Making Kind Choices,
which includes an introduction by Sir Paul McCartney
and is chock-full of simple suggestions to help animals every day, including
how to deal kindly with mice in your home, how to help birds get through the
winter, advice on caring for your animal companions, cruelty-free shopping tips,
and more. To enter, post a comment below telling us how you are kind to animals,
and the winner will be chosen at random from comments submitted that are animal-friendly.
Can't wait that
long? Pick up a copy of Making Kind Choices
today by visiting the PETA
Winner will be chosen at random from animal-friendly comments submitted on this blog. The contest ends on November 21, 2011, and we'll contact
and terms and conditions,
as you're agreeing to both by commenting.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
