How Effective Is Online Activism?

Come on now, can you really help animals and support PETA’s lifesaving work with just a few minutes online?

That’s a resounding “yes”—just ask some of our top members on Causes. Causes is the number-one tool on Facebook to help you speak up for the issues you care about. You can create a cause to support a nonprofit (such as PETA), create petitions for your favorite campaigns, and donate to your favorite Causes. We here at PETA are lucky to be connected to more than 300 Causes with a total of more than 5 million dedicated members!

With so many supporters signing petitions and recruiting new members, it’s hard to choose the best. So instead, we bring you just some of our most active members on Causes. These are the people who go all out—invite everyone they know, promote petitions and messages, and keep the Cause pages active.
