What Are You Doing to Make a Difference?

Published by PETA.

To celebrate “Make a Difference” Day—a national day of volunteering taking place on Saturday—we’re offering you the chance to win a copy of the aptly named One Can Make a Difference: How Simple Actions Can Change the World autographed by PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk to help inspire you to make a difference for animals every day.

One Can Make a Difference contains more than 50 original essays by “differencemakers,” including Sir Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Russell Simmons, Brigitte Bardot, and Oliver Stone. The book also makes the point that you do not need to be famous to impact the world—all you need is determination.

To enter to win a signed copy of One Can Make a Difference, leave a comment about what you are doing to make a difference for animals.

To pick up a copy of One Can Make a Difference right now for yourself or for a friend, visit the PETA catalog. Happy “Make a Difference” Day!

The contest ends on October 31, 2011, and the most inspiring animal-friendly comment will win. We’ll contact the winner on November 1, 2011. Make sure that you read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting.
