Is there no limit to the sheer breadth and depth of Bob Barker’s charitable good will toward winged, scaled and wet nosed creatures the world over?
The beloved three decade long Price Is Right host — who months ago donated a staggering $2.5 million to aid the construction of PETA’s new Los Angeles headquarters and just last week foot the bill for the permanent retirement of four lion cubs that were rescued from a life of stupid human circus tricks — is clearly all about making his greenbacks facilitate real-world animal welfare change.
Barker must be pret-ty pleased with the progress that PETA has achieved thus far in their never ending mission to educate the public about animal rights (along with their legislation efforts and rescue missions) because now through July 4th, he has committed to match all financial donations in their current online fundraising drive in an effort to keep the activism ball rolling.
Seriously…that’s a LOT of smackers! PETA’s somewhat ambitious goal of reaching $250,000 in roughly three weeks will be made all the more sweet (and ka-chingy-ier) when Bob coughs up $250,000 of his own funds…so how ’bout helping a brother out?
Yes, times are tough, but if you can spare an extra $25, $50, or cool hundy for this excellent cause, it’s technically going to go twice as far toward making the lives of animals a little better. Seems like a really great investment, don’t you think?
