I got an email over the transom:
WebThriftStore, an online charity fundraising platform, today announced its new partnership with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). PETA now has its own online store where donated items (such as clothing, electronics, furniture, household items, etc.) are sold into the marketplace to benefit the nonprofit in support of its mission to protect and strengthen animal rights.Right.
Some outfit I have never heard of with a very dubious business plan is emailing me to tell me about their partnership with the direct mail fraud factory known as PeTA?
I am not sure that hits the right tone or delivers the message they are looking for!
Here's a hint: If you have stuff to sell online, stick to Ebay, and if you want to help animals with cash, give to your local No-Kill shelter right in your own area.
PeTA does nothing to help dogs and cats, spends almost all of its money on direct mail, and kills almost every dog and cat that crosses the threshold of the only "shelter" (actually a slaughter house) they run in Norfolk, Virginia.
