For almost two months, rescue workers from around the world have been hard at work trying to clean up the devastation in the wake of Haiti's tragic earthquake. Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti, with support from PETA, continues to address the needs of displaced animals in Haiti, while Maryland-based Food for Life Global—the world's largest vegan relief organization—is distributing vegan meals every day to hungry people in Port-au-Prince. Thanks to the hard work of both of these organizations, the world can see that it is possible to relieve suffering without harming animals.
How can you make a difference? Lift the spirits of those who are helping the animals and humans of Haiti by posting a brief message of support to rescue workers now, and consider honoring their hard work by pledging to go vegan, volunteering at your local animal shelter, or donating to PETA.

As you know, the situation in Haiti is dire, and aid is still desperately needed for all victims of the earthquake. Last week, PETA joined the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH) to assist animals in the area—this week, PETA staff members are baking their buns off for this weekend's national vegan fundraiser, and all proceeds will go toward helping the victims of this disaster. Our vegan desserts and treats are sure to be delicious and—since we'll be following baking tips from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine—healthy.
Want to get involved? Check the long list of bake-sale participants at Post Punk Kitchen—if there isn't an event organized in your area, sign up to organize one. Then tell us which one (or three!) of PCRM's recipes you'll be making.

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.
