Compare and Contrast, Charities!

I think that the Suzuki Foundation should be unlisted as a charity. There is nothing charitable about that organization.

In the spirit of Christmas, we all give more, so I ask you to compare and contrast these two, tell me who you would give your hard earned money to:

Rolling Dog Farm

Help me help the Rolling Dog Farm win a $25,000 donation from Mozilla. The charity that raises the most for the Mozilla campaign will win.

This was a project that my dad cared deeply about and he passed that passion on to me. Please help these animals. Throw them a bone.
The Rolling Dog Farm in northern New Hampshire rescues and shelters disabled animals. Every animal who arrives at the Rolling Dog Farm gets another chance to have a safe and loving home. Their residents include blind dogs, blind horses, deaf dogs, blind cats, and animals with other neurological and orthopedic disabilities.


 These are real people, helping real animals without squawking daily about how much their cause helps animals. True heroes. 

Next up, PETA:

Silk Production Causes Painful Death for Insects
The so-called “silkworm” is actually a domesticated insect who, in nature, goes through the same stages of metamorphosis—egg, larva, pupa, and adult—that all moths do.(5) Silk is derived from the cocoons of larvae, so most of the insects raised by the industry don’t live past the pupa stage, as they are steamed or gassed alive in their cocoons.(6) Approximately 3,000 silkworms are killed to make every pound of silk.(7)

Funny how PETA thinks it's painful for insects to die in the pupa stage. I wonder if they think that aborting a human baby in the "pupa" stage is painful too?  Just asking!

Oh, by the way, your WOOL coat, made from renewable growth by sheep, is also BAD. What do these guys recommend? 

This season, cross coats made with wool and down off your shopping list, and opt for items created with synthetic materials, recycled fibers, and soft cotton instead. Whether you're looking for polished or practical, you can find a cruelty-free look you love right here:
This jacket is perfect for daytime errands and lazy weekends. Add a pair of bright mittens, a scarf, and a hat for extra warmth.

WARNING. Do not click on any of the images on PETA's site because they lead you to companies trying to sell you something. PETA is all about marketing "ideas" and nothing about actually saving any animal. Notice that they are selling "synthetic materials"? Hey PETA, that means nasty oilsands products! Are they so dumb they don't know what "synthetic" means?

Synthetic Fibers are made from synthesized polymers or small molecules. The compounds that are used to make these fibers come from raw materials such as petroleum based chemicals or petrochemicals.

So, I ask you, where would your money go? Rolling Dog Farm or PETA?
