Martin Luther King Jr. Day is fast approaching, and here at PETA we’ve decided to take our cue from President-elect Obama, who suggests that you make January 19 a day of service instead of just a day off. We think it’s a fantastic idea for everyone to spend their day doing something to make a difference, and we even have a suggestion: Help animals! Luckily, it’s easy to get active with PETA, whether you want to put a bumper sticker on your car or organize a demonstration. Check out our Action Center to find out what you can do, or try a few of these ideas:

Step 1: Get Social
You could throw a banner or two on your MySpace page, support our cause on Facebook, send a tweet on Twitter, embed some of our YouTube videos on your personal Web site, or create an animal-friendly e-mail signature or out-of-office auto-response. It’s as easy as that!

Step 2: Participate in Action Alerts
Check out our list of Action Alerts for opportunities to sign petitions, send letters, and make a real difference in the lives of animals. Most of these will take less than a minute of your time, and you can forward them to your friends when you’re done.

Step 3: Spread the Word
Order some PETA leaflets and set up a table. You can get out the word on anything and everything you feel strongly about, whether it’s KFC cruelty or animal birth control. We even have a handy guide to tabling to help you get started.

Step 4: Make It Official
PETA is always looking for potential volunteers, interns, and employees to help save animals across the country. Check out our job listings or join our A-Team.

    I’m with you Cynthia. It’s very sad that living creatures were killed. Yes Joe any time a living animal is killed or suffers we are sad….as anyone with a heart should be. Sadly I feel it’s indication of how people are pushing nature out of the way….

    I am also very upset about the flock of geese in nyc. i actually posted a comment in an animal activists forum I belong to. there must be something that can be done to prevent this.

    Ah poor geese in New York City! I bet you guys are extremly upset over the tragic and untimeley death of that innocent flock that got sucked up into that EVIL A320! Perhaps we ought to BAN all LaGuardia flights untill PETA can ensure that there wont be anothe bird loose their life because of our arogant human progress!
