Tweeps, we need your help! USA Today has announced that it will donate a full-page ad (a $189,400 value) to the nonprofit organization that garners the most tweets on Twitter. If PETA wins, we will use the ad to call for an end to Canada’s annual seal slaughter, which is happening right now and may result in some 388,200 seals being bludgeoned and killed on the ice this year. Imagine if just one tweet could save one seal.
The contest ends on Friday, April 16, so please tweet, retweet, and post our tweet on your Facebook pages ASAP. Just be sure to include “#AmericaWants @PETA to get a full-page ad in USA TODAY” in your tweet so your vote will count. If you haven’t yet joined the “flock,” please sign up for a Twitter account now so that you can make your voice heard. A tweet for PETA is a tweet for seals!
