Re-posted from our weekly News Alert:
Know any young animal lovers? Please pass this message on to them:
Hey kids, have you heard the word? It’s time to put down those pencils and pick up some orange markersthere’s work to be done! We need you and your friends to go orange for animals for the entire month of April. That’s right, this is your big chance to tell the world how much you love animals and don’t want to see them hurt. Cool beans, eh?
Here are a few things you can do:
Join the Club
Wish there was an animal club at your school? Now’s the perfect time to start one. Ask your favorite teacher to be your advisor, and at your first meeting you can discuss all the cool things you can do to help animals.
Open your closet and get out those bright orange pants, hats, caps, bandannas, shirts, sneakers and socks! No worries if the orange clothing fairy passed you by, thoughorange nail polish makes quite a statement, too!
Show Your Shelter Some Love
Ask your teacher if your class can send letters to your local animal shelter, thanking the staff and volunteers for taking care of the animals in your neighborhood who don’t have homes.
So what are you waiting for? Go check out our fun and easy Ways for Kids to Go Orangeand remember, even little kids can create big change when it comes to helping animals.
P.S. A very special shout-out to Mrs. Ferro's class for hosting lunchtime bake sales and making super-cool ASPCA posters to hang around their school!
