National Animal Rights Day Needs Your Help
National Animal Rights Day is expanding across the U.S. and into Canada, but it needs funders like you to help make the celebrations a smooth success.
National Animal Rights Day (NARD) was established in 2011 by the non-profit group Our Planet. Theirs Too, which, according to its website, “aims to help human and non-human animals share this planet in peace and harmony.”
NARD is celebrated across the country “for the purpose of giving a voice to all animals and raising awareness for their rights, until these rights are established and protected by law.” This year it will be celebrated on May 30 with special events in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and for the first time in Colorado Springs, Seattle, and Ottawa, Canada. A celebration will be held on June 7 in New York City.
The organization is seeking donations to cover the costs of their celebrations, which include a requiem ceremony commemorating the billions of animals who die every year by human hands, public readings, the signing of The Declaration of Animal Rights, as well as food, speakers and performers.
The group is aiming for $10,000. Right now, they’re just shy of $2,000 with a deadline of April 14. The organization is calling on people to donate $10, but for those who donate $20, they will be shipped a NARD T-shirt.
Every little bit counts to help spread the word of animal rights.
