Showing the world that you're compassionate toward animals is easier than ever with PETA's purple ribbon. Today we reached our goal of 100,000 postings of the ribbon on Facebook, thanks to you, our ever-helpful supporters. By reposting this ribbon, you're telling friends and family that animal abuse will not be tolerated and that public awareness of animal issues is growing.
Now that's something to be proud of. Let's keep this momentum going. Who knows? Perhaps a new record will be reached, which could only mean more good news for animals.

What's the latest must-have application for compassionate online activists? PETA's Purple Ribbon, of course! With the click of a mouse, you can fight cruelty to animals by posting our Purple Ribbon to your Facebook wall and asking your friends to post it too.
We're fewer than 40,000 likes away from the 1 million mark, and with the help of this ribbon, we might just reach our goal. The more likes we have, the more people we can reach. The more people we can reach, the more animals' lives we can save. So how 'bout it, Facebook friends—will you help spread compassion?

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.
