Kids Color to Save Wolves
I often receive clever drawings and colored pictures from animal-loving children urging me to do everything I can to protect America`s wildlife.
These young activists are passionate about saving the lives of imperiled animals " and they`ve led us to launch Kids Care, a brand-new initiative to give children a way to help stop Sarah Palin`s cruel aerial wolf killing in Alaska.
We`ve already received illustrated messages from kids all over the country urging Palin to end her brutal wolf killing program. Please visit EyeOnPalin.org and get your children involved.
Kids Care is the latest effort in our determined campaign to end aerial wolf killing in Alaska and prevent it from spreading to other states.
With the generous support of caring people like you, we were able to air Ashley Judd`s television ad on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News during last month`s meeting of the nation`s governors in Washington, DC.* And we`ve mobilized tens of thousands of wildlife activists demanding she stop the slaughter.
We`re leaving no stone unturned to stop this awful practice. This winter alone, more than 100 wolves have already fallen victim to Palin`s aerial wolf killing program -- shot to death or chased to exhaustion and killed by gunners in low-flying aircraft.
If you have or know a child who wants to help us stop Alaska`s aerial wolf killing programs, please encourage him or her (and their parents or legal guardians) to visit the Kids Care page on our Eye on Palin campaign website to send their own illustrated message to Governor Palin.
Children can color a wolf and write a message to Governor Palin or create their own art. Kids Care messages will be posted online and hand-delivered to Governor Palin around Earth Day (April 22).
America`s children deserve a chance to enjoy wolves during their lifetime. With your help, we can give them one.
