Besides vegan chocolate chip cookies, what do you like to make? At the top of my list, in no particular order: A difference. Progress. Change. Now it's a cinch for like-minded do-gooders to make all three with PETA's new Change Makers personal fundraising program.
Because animals need PETA's vital lifesaving efforts more than you need yet another tchotchke, it makes perfect sense to set up your own Change Makers page. With just a few strokes of the keyboard, your friends and family can support PETA's programs through a donation in honor of your birthday, wedding, or other special event.
(Just in time for the upcoming holiday season, you can say "Farewell, fruitcakes; hello, Change Makers.")
Here's an incentive to become a Change Maker today: Anyone who raises more than $50 by November 30 will receive a PETA key chain.

Over the years, we've appealed to the United Way to do away with cruel fundraisers such as kiss-a-pig contests, puppy raffles, and greased-pig chases, so we are pleased to see that the charity is getting the message. Check out this cool footrace in which all the participants have two legs instead of four. No animals suffered for this fundraiser!
Remember, you can support our campaigns to get animals out of sports such as horse racing and help all animals suffering around the world by donating to PETA through your workplace giving program. If your company doesn't participate, ask your human resources department to get on board.

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.
