Oh, how "tweet" it is to be loved by you! Thanks to your nominations, PETA is now one of the top five finalists for this year's Mashable Award in the Must-Follow Non-Profit category. We're really itching to break out the "We're #1" foam finger, so how about lending us a hand?
According to the Mashable Awards' website, the awards "celebrate major innovations and achievements in the digital and social media landscape by companies, people and projects via an open, multilingual, international, community-nominated voting platform."
All you have to do to nominate PETA for the award is sign in using Facebook or Twitter—or both. Select "@PETA" and hit "vote." (FYI: Retweeting PETA doesn't count as a full vote.) You can cast one vote for PETA per day, so please vote every day until the voting ends on December 15.
Thanks for your support. (If there were a category for Best Supporters Ever, we would totally nominate all of you!) Please vote now, and then check out what we're up to on Facebook and Twitter.

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.
