Send Your Personal Message to Leafleters
As I began to lose feeling in my fingertips, I said to myself, “In this freezing cold, who is going to take their hands out of their pockets to take one of my leaflets?!” But I was pleasantly surprised!
When I present a leaflet, I look directly at the person, smile, and say, “For the animals.” There were several who took a leaflet only after they heard the words. They would pass me by, then turn around to take one. It was heartwarming. One person said, “Thank you for doing this.” And one person said, “Please give me two of them.”
When I feel too cold, my mind immediately goes to the farmed animals who are transported to slaughter in open trucks, in both frigid and torrid temperatures, and my heart just breaks and breaks and breaks. The horror of it.

Please take a moment to say “thank you” to the Outreach Coordinators and volunteers who are braving the cold weather to leaflet for the animals. Leave your thank-you message here. It only takes a minute, and it will do so much to inspire our activists to keep up their critical work.
