30 Bananas a Day!

Yes, this is the name for a local benefit held yesterday at Five guys burgers and fries for "The center for animal welfare", a local shelter for cats and dogs. The irony is astounding... Help animal welfare by eating burgers ! One of my employees volunteers there and got several people to order lunch for this "worthy" cause. Im not sure how to react to this.... I would prefer they pick a new fundraising spot next year, so letters of pro
test ?

more speciesist foolishness!

however, these things sometimes provide good education opportunities as well as a venue for watching people make bizarre rationalizations which you are welcome to share here:

welcome to 30bad too, amanda!

Use this as an educational opportunity.  Write a letter showing parallels between puppy mills and factory farms.  Ask why they are not showing the same compassion towards all animals.  Make suggestions for other ways they can raise funds.

Thanks for the advice!  It was really hard to know how to handle because the girl who volunteers for the shelter at my work was so excited about the fundraiser!  The next day I did recommend that she watch the movie "Earthlings" since it deals with treatment of animals in shelters, and she might be interested in watching.  She said that she was going to watch it... kind of sneaky way to make a point but I think that the images will have a more meaningful effect than any words that I can say!  I do plan on writing a letter.
