Los AngelesPamela Anderson does her holiday shopping early. Less than a week after Thanksgiving, the honorary PETA director has sent Kim Kardashian a one-of-a-kind gift: a coral “eco-fur” coat that she custom-designed for the reality star with Russian faux-fur manufacturer Only Me.

“I know your young fans would admire you and your brand even more if you dropped fur,” writes Anderson. “As we all ponder New Year’s resolutions, won’t you consider making a meaningful one to stop wearing fur? You’d be setting a trendy, compassionate example.”

Pamela Anderson’s letter to Kim Kardashian follows.

Dear Kim,

Happy holidays from France!

In the spirit of the season, please accept this coral hip-length faux-mink coat, made especially for you by my partners at Only Me Eco Fur in Russia. As we all ponder New Year’s resolutions, won’t you consider making a meaningful one to stop wearing fur? You’d be setting a trendy, compassionate example.

Vogue Paris recently featured Gisele Bündchen on the cover of an issue dedicated to cruelty-free fashion, about which she said, “So happy that Vogue Paris dedicated this issue to animal protection, sending a strong message that wearing real fur is never an option!!”

Also this fall, Gucci announced that it would stop using real fur because it’s “out-dated”—joining Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, BCBG Max Azria, Calvin Klein, and other stylish brands that have shed fur.

As Elaine Welteroth, the editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, recently stated, “Ethical fashion is the future of fashion. Gucci’s decision to ban fur is a smart step in the right direction—for the environment, for animal rights, and for its massive base of young brand fans who will soon represent the largest consumer base in history.”

Kim, I know your young fans would admire you and your brand even more if you dropped fur.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!

Kindest regards,

Pamela Anderson
