It’s no surprise that actor, Ricky Gervais has been named PETA’s 2013 Person of the Year. Gervais has been keeping his 5+ million Twitter followers informed on all matter of animal rights issues and news and has even encouraged them to speak up and support some great charities. Never one to hold back, Gervais has gotten pretty brash for the sake of our animal friends, but has also often shown his softer side. He has certainly gotten some conversations started!

Gervais said in a JustGiving interview, “I probably don’t do anymore than anyone else on Twitter, but with 5.3 million followers, I can reach an awful lot of people at once, and if you’re passionate about something that has touched your heart, chances are it will touch many other people’s hearts in the same way.”

Congrats to you, Ricky! To celebrate your achievement, we hope our readers will revisit some of our favorite Ricky stories of 2013. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in all in 2014!
