News recently broke that “Mr. Come on Down” himself has donated $2.5 million to help the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) open a new office in Los Angeles. That’s a lot of cash!
Barker has been a longtime supporter of the animal rights organization and lent his celebrity status to a number of important campaigns.
The building, which opens today, will be home to the group’s media, marketing, youth outreach and campaign departments.
PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk told reporters that Barker could have just given them a refrigerator but instead paid for an entire building to be renovated. Ain’t that the truth!
From all of us here at Ecorazzi, we give Mr. Barker 3 humongous cheers! Keep up the great work, sir!
