The (Lifesaving) Color Purple

Written by PETA | January 5, 2011

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?

    We have purple ribbons for all kinds of causes, I don’t believe the color is what matters here, but what it is protraying. We can use purple ribbons for Cancer, Alzhiemer, etc, its what is linked to that matters. There all very important, but I feel the animals have no voice but ours, therefore I share this and several links each day. I may get one of 300 people a day to accept or join Peta or sign a petition, its not easy when people are blinded by their own ignorance.

    My family owns a rabbitry and I would just like to point out that all the pictures I upload to Facebook, Myspace, or Print out when it’s time to sell bunnies, always have the purple ribbon on the picture somewhere

    The purple Ribbon now stands for 3 things?? Domestic abuse, Pancreatic Cancer and now Animal abuse?
