  • Variety - The Children0s Charity, today announced English actor and television presenter Warwick Davis as the charity's latest Celebrity Ambassador.

    The STAR WARS and HARRY POTTER star will be formally inducted into his new role at Britain's Biggest Pub Tour's finishing party on 26th September at the Slug and Lettuce at Tower Bridge, London.

    The Stonegate Pub Company is fundraising for Variety through a group-wide event, 'Britain's Biggest Pub Tour', which has been running from 18th May throughout the summer. The tour aims to raise funds through a variety of events at Stonegate establishments and has raised more than £100,000 to date. Armed with a giant ‘Pledge Passport', the tour started at Yates in Hastings and teams from each pub on the 5,555 mile route delivered the passport from pub to pub, using quirky and ingenious modes of transportation. From roller-skating to zip-wiring, barrel-rolling to helicopter riding, the challenge has been to complete the tour in just 124 days, culminating in an exceptional party on 26th September.

    Warwick said of his new role: "The welfare of our disadvantaged and disabled young children should be at the top of every agenda, so I'm honoured to represent Variety, the Children's Charity, and the incredible work it does across the country. I'm really looking forward to joining Britain's Biggest Pub Tour and celebrating the fundraising efforts of the Stonegate company and its employees for such a fantastic cause."

    Variety Chief Barker, Trevor Green, said: "Variety has a rich heritage of support from the show business community and so it is only right that we continue to move forward and work with the stars of today. I would like to thank Warwick for agreeing to dedicate some time to the charity, we know that, with his further support, we can mobilise more people around the country to help improve the lives of others, less fortunate."

    Variety, the Children's Charity, is dedicated to supporting children and young people across the UK who are disabled and disadvantaged, facilitating positive experiences for them, through its vast array of programmes and initiatives. Since setting up its UK division in 1949, the charity has raised over £200 million and supported more than 800,000 children.

    Warwick Davis joins a long line of illustrious celebrities who have supported Variety since its inception. The charity has its roots in showbusiness and stars such as Sir Michael Caine; James McAvoy; Barbara Windsor and Joan Collins, have all pledged their backing in recent years, and helped contribute towards Variety's rich entertainment heritage.

  • LilySarahGrace (LSG) today announced its latest fundraising campaign, "Color Outside the Lines," based around drawings from more than 40 artists in film, television, music and visual art that were specially created for LSG.

    The campaign will officially launch on Saturday, October 25, 2014, at the first-annual LSG Gala at Jack Studios (601 W 26th St).

    Featured artists in the campaign include Adam Scott, Ben Harper, Bruno Mars, Carole Feuerman, Casey Affleck, David Copperfield, Diane von Furstenberg, Ed Helms, Elizabeth Banks, Elle Fanning, Eric Bogosian, Helen Ficalora, Jack Black, Jason Bateman, Jason Schwartzman, Jemima Kirk, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Biel, Joaquin Phoenix, Johnny Knoxville, Julianna Marguiles, Julianne Moore, Justin Theroux, Justin Vivian Bond, Laura Dern, Laurie Simmons, Lena Dunham, Lionel Richie, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mario Batali, Mark Seliger, Mary-Louise Parker, Naomi Watts, Natasha Lyonne, Nigel Sylvester, Rufus Wainwright, Sage Vaughn, Scott Caan, Tina Fey, Tom Arnold, Whoopi Goldberg, Will Ferrell and will.i.am.

    As part of "Color Outside the Lines," LSG has launched a Kickstarter campaign to publish these one-of-a- kind drawings into a book, titled You Can't Memorize This. For more information about "Color Outside the Lines" and to donate to the cause, click here.

    "My daughters were creative beings, each with their own individual passions and gifts. All three shared challenges in literacy. I witnessed Grace flourish in a creative, art-infused classroom, and Lily panic in a rigid, traditional one. No child should be frightened by school. Sadly with the removal of the Arts, this is very common in Public Education today," LSG Founder Matthew Badger said. "This campaign is all about promoting the joy of creativity. I just think it is really awesome that so many creative people showed up for this and took the time to do a drawing. The family of LilySarahGrace suddenly just got so much bigger! I hope this campaign furthers our reach into the classrooms across America. The country is filled with public elementary school teachers that are desperate to bring the arts into their classrooms. They know how art creates a love of learning for their students."

    LSG provides underfunded schools with supplies and educational tools to teach their curriculum through the arts. Whoopi Goldberg, Charles Best and Hans Tullman will be honored at the Gala for their significant contributions and dedication to arts education.

    LilySarahGrace was founded by Matthew Badger and his partner, Abby Ballin, after his daughters -- Lily, Sarah and Grace -- tragically passed away in a fire on Christmas of 2011. Lily was 9 and twins Sarah and Grace were 7. Badger witness firsthand how vital the arts in school were for his girls because of their dyslexia. Art was their passion. Since April 2012, LSG has given $1 million in supplies to teachers in underfunded public elementary schools to teach their curriculum through the arts. Because of LilySarahGrace, 140,000 children have learned through this method in classrooms all over America. To learn more, visit www.lilysarahgrace.org.

    In addition to "Color Outside the Lines," the Gala will feature specially designed charms from Helen Ficalora, based on a drawing by Sarah Badger. The charms are available in yellow, pink or white 14k, solid-gold – with a diamond charm or without – and sterling silver. Pricing ranges from $75 to $300. 25% of the proceeds go to LSG. Charms will be available for purchase at the LSG Gala.

    The evening will also feature a performance by Rufus Wainwright and a DJ set by Andy Rourke of the Smiths. Creative direction for the Gala is conceptualized and executed by Abby Ballin and Periel Aschenbrand. To purchase tickets for the Gala, click here.

    The Host Committee for the 2014 LSG Gala includes Laura Dern, Mindy Goldberg, Jenny Levy, Genevieve Lynch, Timory King, Tim Ives, Gaby Basora, Doug Halbert, Stacy Wall, Jake Bernstein, Michael Goldberg, Cindy Sherman, Rebecca Blumhagen, Liana Pai and Bridget Goodbody.

  • Written by Elizabeth Willoughby

    Two days after joining 400,000 environmental activists marching on the streets of New York on Sunday September 21, actor Leonardo DiCaprio spoke at the city's UN climate summit.

    "As an actor I pretend for a living," DiCaprio told the assembly. "I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious problems. I believe that mankind has looked at climate change in that same way -- as if it were a fiction, as if pretending climate change wasn't real would somehow make it go away. But I think we all know better than that now."

    With climate and extreme weather events occurring so frequently nowadays, DiCaprio says this is evidence that accelerated climate change is here now.

    "Droughts are intensifying, our oceans are acidifying with methane plumes rising up from the ocean floor, we are seeing extreme weather events and the west Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets melting at unprecedented rates decades ahead of scientific projections."

    He claims that, besides governments, industry and the scientific community, even the America military admit that climate change is happening and is a security threat. Beyond changing light bulbs or driving hybrid cars, he says governments and industries around the world need to take decisive and large scale action, including eliminating subsidies for oil, coal and gas companies and putting a price tag on carbon emissions.

    "We need to end the free ride that industrial polluters have been given in the name of a free market economy," he says. "They do not deserve our tax dollars, they deserve our scrutiny, for the economy itself will die if our ecosystems collapse. Clean air and a livable climate are inalienable human rights. Solving this crisis is not a question of politics, it is a question of our own survival."

    With a plea for the UN body to be courageous and honest about what actions to take, DiCaprio also had this warning: "You can either make history or be vilified by it."

  • Variety - The Children0s Charity, has announced full details of the inaugural "Patrons of Variety" event taking place in the stunning setting of The Shard tonight (September 29th).

    The star-studded evening, hosted by well-loved Radio and TV Presenter Gaby Roslin, will feature entertainment from Dynamo, as the Magician Impossible returns to the scene of
    his most recent spectacular stunt. He will be joined by a host of musical talent, including acclaimed soprano superstar Laura Wright.

    With over a million album sales under her belt, Wright is one of the biggest selling classical acts of the decade. Regularly performing in front of sold-out audiences at the likes of Twickenham and The Olympic Stadium, the young singer has achieved considerable mainstream success, and arrives on the wave of new album, "Sound of Strength". She has previously worked with Patrons of Variety's Founder and Chairman, Harold Tillman CBE, at the opening of the London Fashion Gala last year.

    Also set to perform on the night are young kings of the acoustic cover, The Diamond Boys; star of "The Voice", Moni Tivory; and hotly-tipped Scottish jazz musician, Jonathan Carr.

    Renowned entrepreneur Harold Tillman, Founder and Chairman, gave the night his seal of approval: "The launch of Patrons of Variety brings Britain's brightest young talent together in one room. We're immensely proud to see our generous backers and the hottest stars turning out in force for the charity. Every one of these outstanding performers will be showcasing his or her own unique brand of magic – in Dynamo's case quite literally -- and those attending can look forward to an evening of first-rate entertainment in a beautiful setting."

    The newly-founded Patrons of Variety will comprise 50 individuals, each pledging £10,000 a year for three years, to help provide vital funds totaling £1.5m for Variety, the Children's Charity.

    The evening's entertainment will commence at The View from The Shard, on the 72nd Floor of one of the world's most iconic buildings. Guests will enjoy a Lanson champagne reception, with canapés from The London Kitchen, whilst taking in the breath-taking views. They will then continue to
    Vinopolis for a three-course dinner, serenaded by the musicians before the festivities take one last magic twist with Dynamo's arrival.

    One of the oldest international children's charities, Variety has so far raised more than £267 million to help children and young people throughout the UK who are sick, disabled or disadvantaged. Variety, the Children's Charity, believes that neither disability nor disadvantage should prevent any child from reaching his or her full potential, and its Patrons will play an integral part in the realisation of this objective.

  • Aloe Blacc was honoree and performer at the 43rd annual Humanitarian Awards on Friday.

    Verizon presented the 43rd Annual Humanitarian Awards benefiting long standing partner Peace Over Violence. Each year the Humanitarian Awards brings together a diverse group of business leaders, elected officials, entertainment industry professionals and non-profit service providers. It recognizes those who have significantly helped further Peace Over Violence's goal of eliminating violence against women, youth and children.

    This year the honorees were: Kaiser Permanente -- Verizon Hopeline Corporate Award; musicians Aloe Blacc & Maya Jupiter -- Voice Over Violence Award; The Punk Singer, a Film about Kathleen Hanna -- Media Award and Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez -- Public Service Award. The event also included a special recognition of the 25th Anniversary of Peace Over Violence's Deaf and Disabled, and Elder Services Program, the first in the nation to serve deaf survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

    Aloe Blacc, the chart-topping singer behind such hits as "The Man" and "Wake Me Up", and his wife, singer Maya Jupiter, were the 2014 celebrity spokespeople for POV's Denim Day in LA & USA campaign. Their involvement brought increased awareness to the annual campaign, which supports survivors and educates people about sexual violence prevalence and prevention. Blacc and Jupiter are dedicated to social activism and frequently volunteer with Peace Over Violence, leading songwriting workshops for teens. Together, they recently founded Artivist Entertainment to bring together likeminded artists for positive social change.

    Previous attendees and honorees include celebrities such as Calista Flockhart, Harrison Ford, Lily Tomlin, Steve Martin, Sally Field, Carlos Santana, Tim Gunn and Mariska Hargitay; the casts of television shows such as Mad Men, Law and Order: SVU, and CSI, as well as corporations such as Blue Shield, Allstate, Fifth & Pacific Companies, Union Bank and Southern California Gas.

  • For the Love of Dogs star Paul O0Grady MBE has written to the Lord Mayor of London asking her to put a stop to the archaic and dangerous tradition of herding sheep across London Bridge.

    In his letter, the comedian, presenter, actor and writer calls on Fiona Woolf to drop the stunt and switch to a more compassionate form of fundraising that would not cause distress to animals.

    "I am writing to express my deep concern about the sheep who will be herded across London Bridge in a bid to raise money on 5 October, and I wanted to urge you, as the leader of the council, to replace this spectacle with another form of fundraising," he wrote. "I understand that as Lord Mayor of the City of London, you are historically entitled to the Freedom of the City, a privilege that theoretically affords you the right to carry a naked sword in public, in addition to other equally archaic practices. I am sure that you will agree that these "rights" should not be exercised simply because they can be exercised.

    "I hope you will agree that sheep are not inanimate props. As someone who has had the pleasure of sharing my home with these wonderful animals, I can tell you that sheep are intelligent and complex individuals. They flock to keep safe from predators. If threatened, they all run together for a short distance and then turn to face the danger as a group. Just like humans, dogs, chickens and most other animals, sheep make different sounds to communicate different emotions, and flock mates recognise each other, even if they've been separated for years.

    "Herding sheep down a very busy London street while cars continue to speed along the road next to them shows a disregard for their welfare and needlessly causes them distress. I have no doubt that you would be able to match, if not exceed, the donations that the previous Lord Mayor received by promoting an event without the use of any animals, and compassionate Londoners would thank you for it."

    Sheep are sentient, intelligent and complex animals. A University of Illinois study found that they perform nearly as well as pigs on IQ tests and have demonstrated problem-solving abilities.

  • West Ham United players and staff have come together with actor Ray Winstone to show their support for the British Lung Foundation's (BLF) week-long campaign to raise awareness of the lung disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), for World IPF Week (28 September -- 05 October 2014).

    West Ham United Palyers Blowing Bubbles
    West Ham United Palyers Blowing Bubbles

    The Premier League football team, which is associated with the song 'I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles', and devoted fan, Winstone, will join BLF supporters and campaigners around the world in tweeting and Facebooking pictures of themselves blowing bubbles (this year's World IPF Week theme), as a sign of support to all those people whose lives are affected by IPF.

    People can also text ‘IPF' to 70500 to donate £5 to help the BLF fight the growing impact of IPF on the UK's health.

    IPF, which causes a progressive scarring of the lungs, has been on the rise in the UK for decades, and now kills around 5,000 people a year -- on a par with conditions such as leukaemia.1,2 However, there is no known cause or cure. As a result, the disease acts with often-devastating speed: barely half of people diagnosed with IPF are still alive three years later, and just one in five will survive five years.3

    World IPF Week is an opportunity to help raise awareness for this little-known disease and to campaign for more research and better treatment and support for the patients and their families.

    Kevin Nolan, club captain at West Ham United, said: "I urge everyone to get behind World IPF Week as we are doing here at West Ham United and support the British Lung Foundation to help fight this devastating disease."

    Actor and West Ham United fan, Ray Winstone said: "I'm proud that my club is getting behind the British Lung Foundation this World IPF Week. But this isn't about club rivalry. This week is about raising awareness of a disease that affects 15,000 people in the UK, but that most people have never heard of. It can affect anyone, has no cure, and can kill with devastating speed.

    "It's time things change. I'll definitely be blowing bubbles and texting to donate in support of World IPF Week this year. I hope all Irons, football fans, and all right-minded people across the UK will do so too."

    Dr Penny Woods, Chief Executive of the British Lung Foundation, said: "IPF is a cruel disease that is in urgent need of more attention from our government, to improve the level of care and services offered to patients.

    "Having West Ham's and Ray's support this year will go far in helping us raise the profile of IPF, and helping this disease get more of the attention and investment that we desperately need."

    For further information about IPF, please visit the BLF website.

  • Canadian-born Baywatch star and honorary director of PETA, Pamela Anderson, has just sent a letter to Hannes Germann, president of the Swiss Council of States, to thank the council for approving a motion that will ban the importation of seal-fur products from Canada.

    This move, which comes after two years of debate in Parliament, follows the World Trade Organization's recent decision to uphold the EU's ban on seal-fur imports.

    "As a proud Canadian, I was delighted to learn that the Swiss Council of States has approved a bill to ban seal-fur imports from my native country," she wrote. "I became active in marine-mammal issues well before my Baywatch days and have been working for years with PETA, the world's largest animal-protection organization, to help end Canada's commercial seal slaughter.

    "The World Trade Organization's recent decision to uphold the EU's ban on seal products underscores the fact that the welfare of seals targeted by commercial hunts is a legitimate public moral concern. There were no exports of Canadian pelts reported for 2014, and the council's decision further shows that the world has moved on from seal products.

    "Thank you for joining the EU, Russia, Taiwan, the U.S., and others that have banned seal fur and taken a stand for the tens of thousands of seals who die every year for a product that nobody needs or wants."

    Anderson's letter has already garnered a response from Germann, who says: "The letter was unexpected and took me completely by surprise. But I am particularly pleased that Swiss policy is pursued worldwide."

  • Neil Finn is offering a live download of one of his biggest hits to help charity appeals for victims of war in Gaza and Syria.

    Video: Neil Finn - Don0t Dream It0s Over (live 2014) - Humanitarian Aid

    The new and poignant version of his Crowded House hit "Don't Dream It's Over" was recorded during Neil's Dizzy Heights tour this year.

    "I have been distressed to see so many innocent people become victims of war in Gaza and Syria," said Neil. "A few weeks ago I received a message from a man on Twitter drawing my attention to the lyrics of Don't Dream It's Over and how fitting the sentiments were in relation to these people's suffering. It got me thinking and I took that as a timely cue to put my song to work for a year to assist in humanitarian aid for those affected. It seems like the least I can do. That song has been good to me and I hope it can do some good for others for a while.

    "This is a live version of the song recorded and filmed on my last tour. I edited the video myself. If you wish to download the song for NZD $2 or more we will ensure the money gets to Kia Ora Gaza and The Red Crescent Appeal for Syria. I have researched the many worthy organisations that are working in these places and chosen these two that I believe to be effective and focused."

  • During the weekend, Toronto was treated to one of its most fun and funniest evenings of the year, as Chris Rock performed at Laughter Is The Best Medicine II — a comedy gala that raised $2.5 million in support of Toronto East General Hospital (TEGH.)

    With Will Arnett as Master of Ceremonies, over 1400 guests celebrated the completion of the hospital's $60-million private sector capital campaign at the sold-out affair, held at the Allstream Centre.

    Chris Rock — the multi-Emmy and Grammy award winner, critically acclaimed as one of the world's best comedians — had the crowd in stitches for more than an hour, with all-new material, prepared especially for TEGH's guests. The occasion marked the first time Rock had ever performed for a private event.

    "It's a great cause. The hospital does a lot of amazing work. And I just wanted to be with the right people; and this just seemed like the right time," said Rock about why he chose to perform at the TEGH event.

    TEGH has been proudly serving the community of East Toronto since 1929, when it opened its doors as a 110-bed general hospital. Over the years, the hospital has continually renewed its commitment to the community it serves. Today, TEGH is a large, urban, full-service community teaching hospital, providing comprehensive care to a diverse population of 400,000, representing over 40 cultural and linguistic groups.

  • The Marshall Mathers Foundation, which provides funds for organizations working with at-risk youth in Michigan and throughout the U.S, partnered with Carhartt, America's premium work wear brand since 1889, to design a limited edition Carhartt Force zip-front hoodie with all proceeds benefitting the Foundation.

    The hoodie is available for purchase at www.eminem.com.

    "This collaboration is all about two Detroit icons working together to support kids in Detroit, the state of Michigan and beyond," said Tony Ambroza, senior vice president of marketing for Carhartt. "We have been a part of the Detroit area for 125 years and are proud to partner with organizations like The Marshall Mathers Foundation that shine a positive light on the city."

    The limited edition, heather gray zip --front hoodie is lightweight and made of a 65% cotton/35% polyester blend. It has a screen-printed Eminem logo on the left chest and the back is printed with an anvil graphic with a "313" at its center. It's encircled by the words "Detroit, Michigan. 1889. 1999."

    "We chose this particular sweatshirt because it is similar to a Carhartt hoodie that Marshall often wears on-stage," Ambroza said. "Since it's part of our Force line of knits, the hoodie includes our FastDry technology to wick away sweat and our StainBreaker technology to release stains; plus it's a relaxed fit, which is always popular with customers."

    The Marshall Mathers Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to providing assistance to disadvantaged and at-risk youth primarily in Detroit, Michigan and it's surrounding communities.

  • British radio presenters Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon are teaming up with Taylor Swift in their incredible charity breakfast show on October 9th -- raising money for Global's Make Some Noise.

    Global's Make Some Noise Day will see the three take to the skies, 1,000 feet above London, at the top of The Shard to present a never-before-heard show.

    Not only will they be facing the heights of Western Europe's tallest building, but Taylor has set Dave and Lisa a terrifying challenge: whoever raises the least in the run up to 9th October -- Global's Make Some Noise day -- has to clean the windows of The View from the Shard -- from the outside!

    Capital Breakfast's Dave Berry said: "I'm absolutely terrified of losing out to Lisa on this challenge, so I'm going to need everyone's support. I'm pulling out all the stops to raise as much money as possible for our new charity, Global's Make Some Noise, so please get behind me and donate!"

    Lisa Snowdon said: "The forfeit for losing this challenge is possibly one of the most terrifying things I've ever been faced with, thanks Taylor! I need everyone's support on this -- help me get Dave up there! Come on, London, I need your help!"

    It's up to you -- are you Team Lisa or Team Dave?

    To save Lisa from scaling the shard text ‘LISA' to 70070.

    To save Dave from this window-cleaning nightmare text ‘DAVE' to 70070.

    The pair have just over a week to raise the most -- so get donating today!

    Glabal's Make Some Noise helps disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. These youngsters may be affected by illness, disability, bereavement or lack of opportunity. They want every child and teenager to reach their full potential. So they use the power of radio to MAKE SOME NOISE for those who struggle to be heard. Which allows them to award grants to specially selected projects across the country that are changing young lives.

  • The country's top therapy dog, a pit bull mix named Susie from High Point, North Carolina who overcame a terrible ordeal but went on to bring hope to both people and animals, has been named this year's "American Hero Dog" at the 2014 American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards, presented by the Lois Pope LIFE Foundation, Inc. and broadcast nationally on Hallmark Channel October 30 at 8 pm ET/PT, 7 pm Central Time.

    Susie was only a puppy when her owner beat her savagely and set her on fire, leaving her for dead in a local park in Greensboro, North Carolina. After being rescued by a local animal shelter and nursed back to health, she was adopted by Donna Lawrence, who had been the victim of a terrible dog attack that nearly killed her and left her without the ability to have children. Together, they helped each other heal from their physical and emotional wounds, triumphing over pain and fear to become voices for abused animals and helping pass "Susie's Law" in North Carolina, which calls for harsher penalties for convicted animal abusers. Susie became the subject of the movie, "Susie's Hope," and working side by side, Donna and Susie continue to make the world a better place for others by visiting hospitals, schools, and nursing homes to inspire people never to give up. This year's therapy dog category sponsor, as well as the campaign's online sponsor, is the leading animal health company, Zoetis.

Guests were also treated to a Hero Dog Art Show, featuring art works about dogs sent in by children across the country as part of a humane education initiative with Todd Kessler, co-creator of the wildly successful "Blue's Clues" television program and author of the innovative new children's book "The Good Dog."

    The Hero Dog Awards were created to celebrate the powerful relationship between dogs and people and recognize extraordinary acts of heroism performed by ordinary dogs. The event will be broadcast nationwide by Hallmark Channel on October 30 at 8 pm ET/PT, 7 pm Central. The program will air as part of Hallmark Channel's Pet Project, the network's cross-platform advocacy campaign designed to celebrate the joy and enrichment animals bring to our lives.

    During a nationwide search, 135 dogs from all across the country were nominated and more than one and a half million votes were cast by the American public, culminating in the selection of eight extraordinary canine finalists.

    "The American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards were created to honor some of the most extraordinary heroes the world has ever known, the very best of our ‘best friends' -- ordinary dogs who do extraordinary things," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, President and CEO of American Humane Association. "These courageous canines have gone above and beyond the call of duty, saving lives on the battlefield, comforting the ill, aged and afflicted, bringing hope to those who have lost it and reminding us of the powerful, age-old bond between animals and people. Choosing a top dog is difficult because they are all so terrific, but we are proud to announce Susie as the top American Hero Dog for 2014. We hope that Susie's story will inspire people to realize healing power of the human-animal bond."

    The winner is chosen through a combination of public votes and voting by a panel of animal advocates and celebrity judges including Victoria Stilwell, Naomi Judd, Prince Lorenzo Borghese, Alison Eastwood, Joanna Krupa, Bailee Madison, Lisa Vanderpump, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Lou Wegner, Christie Brooke, Philippe and Ashlan Gorse Cousteau, Leilani Dowding, Paige Dunham, Joanne Horowitz, Blake Koch, Shara Strand, Agent Jerry Means, Kristin Bauer van Straten, and Victoria Summer.

    Susie was the one chosen as 2014 American Hero Dog, but all eight finalists were winners in their categories, and we salute them for their courage, service and compassion:

    • ARSON DOG CATEGORY – Sponsored by State Farm

    WINNER: Kai (San Antonio, TX) -- The San Antonio Fire Department's six-year-old black Lab was rescued from a shelter and given a second chance and a new lease on life. Her nose for finding things was apparent when she was seen digging the only tennis ball out of the shelter's box of toys. After undergoing extensive training, she now helps keep others safe by investigating arson cases by using her powerful nose to detect the common accelerants that arsonists use to commit their deadly, destructive crime. In her four-year career she has taken part in more than 200 investigations and also helps to keep her community safe by teaching children about the importance of fire safety.

    (Charity Partner: Project Paws Alive)

    • EMERGING HERO DOG CATEGORY – Sponsored by Trupanion

    WINNER: Xena (Johns Creek, GA) -- This pit bull was knocking on death's door when she was brought into a Georgia shelter outside Atlanta. Emaciated and dehydrated, she was given just a one percent chance at survival. Unbelievably, she defied the odds, made a full recovery and was adopted by a family with a little boy with autism. Before, the child had closed himself off to the world, but the arrival of Xena sparked something in the child the family had never seen before, and he went from once silent to constantly singing to and chatting with Xena the Warrior Puppy. Now, they're an inseparable pair.

    (Charity Partner: Sheltie Rescue of Utah)

    • GUIDE/HEARING DOG CATEGORY – Sponsored by Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food

    WINNER: Xxon (Bloomfield, CT) -- In January 2010, an explosion in Kandahar, Afghanistan left Air Force Sergeant Michael Malarsie blind and killed four of his fellow servicemen, including his best friend. Though he lost his sight, Sgt. Malarsie was soon partnered with Xxon, and they became the only active duty guide dog team in the Air Force. Now retired, Sgt. Malarsie continues to work with Xxon every day as the dog helps get him safely to wherever he needs to be. The pair are also outspoken advocates for the importance of service dogs to members of the military, and have visited members of Congress to discuss this important issue.

    (Charity Partner: Fidelco).

    • LAW ENFORCEMENT DOG CATEGORY

    WINNER: Kota (Winchester, VA) -- On January 3, 2014, this member of the Winchester, Virginia police force was injured while responding to a burglary in progress. While in the process of detaining the suspect -- who had hidden himself in the upstairs crawlspace -- the ceiling gave way and the dog tumbled to the hardwood floor eight feet below. Undeterred, he bravely climbed back up the stairs and helped his fellow officers finish the call, fighting with a severely fractured limb to ensure their safety. Kota is now undergoing extensive physical therapy with hopes of one day returning to active duty.

    (Charity Partner: K9s4COPs)

    • MILITARY DOG CATEGORY – Sponsored by Shotz Natural Energy

    WINNER: Chaney (Waverly, IA) -- This eight-year-old lab retired from the Marines in 2013 after multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as an IED detection dog. While deployed, Chaney not only saved countless lives by locating IEDs, he also served as a great morale booster for everyone in his squad. Since retiring, Chaney was adopted by one of his handlers and they now spend many hours volunteering around the Midwest for a nonprofit organization called Retrieving Freedom, Inc., which trains service dogs for disabled veterans and children with autism.

    (Charity Partner: America's VetDogs)

    • SEARCH AND RESCUE DOG CATEGORY – Sponsored by Mission Manager

    WINNER: Bretagne (Cypress, TX) -- Over her long career, Bretagne has made a significant contribution to the search and rescue community through her many deployments including the World Trade Center after 9/11, the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, and Hurricane Rita in 2005. Although she retired from active duty in 2008, she now continues as an ambassador for search and rescue dogs as she visits elementary schools where she helps first graders learn to read. Even at her older age, she still goes into work with a bigger lust for life than dogs half her age.

    (Charity Partner: Penn Vet Working Dog Center)

    • SERVICE DOG CATEGORY – Sponsored by Modern Dog Magazine

    WINNER: JJ Krawczyk (Apex, NC) -- Once a shelter dog, this small hero was rescued, trained, and partnered with a young girl suffering from a rare condition known as Mastocytosis, which can cause severe reactions for her. This dog with the gifted nose can detect when reactions are about to occur, alerting the girl's parents that her life might be in danger. When she needed surgery recently, doctors requested the dog be present in the operating room to help keep the girl alive. Though she doesn't have a medical degree -- or even a pedigree -- she's one of the most powerful tools for doctors to keep the young girl's condition at bay.

    (Charity Partner: Freedom Service Dogs)

    Each of the eight finalists received $1,500 to be donated to one of American Humane Association's charity partners. Susie won an additional $5,000 for her charity. In this way, more heroes may be nurtured.

    An Extraordinary Reunion of Two More Heroes -- and an Extraordinary Gift

    American Humane Association has also been involved in helping military heroes, and has been working with Mission K9 Rescue and the U.S. War Dog Association to bring home and reunite military dogs with their hero handlers. Following an emotional scene during the 2014 American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards in which the audience met Marine Corporal Matt Foster who was reunited with his beloved former military hero dog Mick after a year apart following their service in Afghanistan, noted philanthropist, animal welfare and disabled veterans advocate Lois Pope announced a pledge of $150,000 to support American Humane Association's efforts to aid and pay tribute to the nation's brave military hero dogs and their former handlers. Mrs. Pope is donating $50,000 to the American Humane Association's "K9 Battle Buddies program" to bring more of these veterans back together on American soil where they can both live out their well-deserved retirements in the way they deserve after a lifetime of service. To bring national attention to these heroes on both ends of the leash, Mrs. Pope is also underwriting a $100,000 special effort to include these military hero dog teams in this year's America's Parade, which takes place on Veterans Day 2014 in New York City. Her generous contribution will give these reunited dog teams their own part in the parade -- and a national platform so that millions of Americans can honor them as they should be honored.

    "The thousands of dogs who serve in our nation's military have sacrificed so much," said Mrs. Pope. "They are often the first line of defense, sniffing out bombs, mines, and other explosive devices. As they did on the battlefield, they can save lives here at home, just by being a companion to the veterans with whom they served. I've witnessed the profound impact that these dogs can have on them. It is my honor to support the efforts of American Humane Association, its K9 Battle Buddies program and its participation in the Veterans Day parade."

    "Lois Pope has been one of the country's greatest supporters not only of our nation's disabled veterans, whose cause she has championed for decades, but of America's most vulnerable children and animals," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane Association's President and CEO. "You don't just talk the talk, you make a difference in millions of lives and improve our world. Lois, on behalf of all our veterans -- two-footed and four-footed alike -- we salute you!"

    Heroes to Animal Also Honored

    The Hero Dog Awards honors heroes "on both ends of the leash," and this year the Hero Dog Awards inaugurated a new element, the American Humane Association Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Technician Awards, sponsored by the leading animal health company Zoetis. After a nationwide search and tens of thousands of public votes, Eva DeCozio, DVM, of the VCA Apache Junction clinic in Higley, Arizona was named 2014's American Hero Veterinarian, and Signe Corbin of the Westlake Animal Hospital in Austin, Texas was declared 2014's American Hero Veterinary Technician.

    "To us, all vets and vet techs are heroes and this is why we want to honor the best of the best in their fields," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane Association's president and CEO. "Indeed, Dr. DeCozio and Ms. Corbin are tremendous animal welfare advocates and we are so proud to learn of their laudable accomplishments aiding the animals in need in their communities. And our thanks go out to our friends at Zoetis for sponsoring this special contest because we know how committed they are to recognizing the achievements of the veterinary community."

    Special Surprise: "Easy Rider" Motorcycle to Give Easier Ride to America's Kids and Animals

    At one special point of the evening, American Humane Association President brought out and thanked Michael Eisenberg, the Los Angeles developer and memorabilia collector for generously donating a portion of the auction proceeds from the sale of the iconic "Captain America" motorcycle ridden by actor Peter Fonda in the classic film "Easy Rider." Fonda has been a longtime supporter of American Humane Association. "We are blessed and honored to count as friends such notables as Peter Fonda and Michael Eisenberg, and to be associated with this legendary piece of American film history," said Dr. Ganzert. "The sale of the famous motorcycle in ‘Easy Rider' will now help to give an easier ride to America's children and animals, who need help from powerful benefactors like these. Thank you!"

    Honoring Our Heroes' Supporters

    Finally, American Humane Association honored the many generous sponsors who support the Hero Dog Awards and made them possible. "We thank the animals, their dedicated owners and handlers, and the generous sponsors who have helped bring about that recognition," said Dr. Ganzert. "Thank you to Lois Pope and the Lois Pope LIFE Foundation, Hallmark Channel, national online sponsor, Therapy Dog sponsor and sponsor of the Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Technician Awards Zoetis, Military Dog sponsor Shotz Natural Energy, Arson Dog sponsor State Farm, Emerging Hero Dog sponsor Trupanion, Guide/Hearing Dog sponsor Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food, Search and Rescue Dog sponsor Mission Manager, Service Dog sponsor Modern Dog Magazine, Best Producer sponsor The Beverly Hilton Hotel, and Best Producer sponsor Merial, maker of Heartgard and NexGard. Dogs may be our best friends, but these caring organizations are theirs."

  • The second annual Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards presented by YUM! Brands Foundation took place last night at the Louisville Downtown Marriott.

    The event was created to celebrate the greatness of people from around the world who are making differences in their communities and beyond. In addition to awards given to seasoned humanitarians, six young people, 30 years and younger, were honored with an award for each of Muhammad's Six Core Principles: Confidence, Conviction, Dedication, Giving, Respect, and Spirituality.

    "The Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards personify what the Ali Center stands for," said Lonnie Ali, Vice Chair of the Ali Center. "Tonight, we honored some exceptional humanitarians who are demonstrating that one person's conscious actions can effectively change the lives of many, and ultimately transform the world. We hope the Ali Humanitarian Awards continue to inspire young people to be great and do great things. It was a privilege to be among these great humanitarians who are tomorrow's hope."

    Recipients of the 2014 Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards included: former NFL star, social justice activist, and actorJim Brown; international humanitarian and entrepreneur, Mick Ebeling; Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon; musician, poet, and activist Common; six young adults (age 30 and under), and Kentucky humanitarians, Robert and Deborah Blair.

    Jim Brown was presented with the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Lifetime Achievement Award. Jim Brown is known worldwide for his Hall of Fame football exploits as a running back for the NFL's Cleveland Browns. He boldly stood up for civil rights at a time it was not a cool thing to do, and fought for equality and against injustice with necessitated courage and uncompromising integrity. It was Jim Brown who rallied the premiere athletes of the 1960s to support Muhammad Ali's right to conscientiously object to service in the Vietnam War. Brown founded the Amer-I-Can Life Management Skills program in 1988, a program that has changed and saved thousands of lives.

    Mick Ebeling was named Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year for his work as founder and CEO of Not Impossible, LLC, an organization that develops creative solutions to real-world problems. Impossible's latest endeavor, Project Daniel, is the subject of Intel's latest Look Inside campaign. For Project Daniel, Ebeling flew to Sudan to 3D-print and fit prosthetic limbs for children of the war-torn region, then left the equipment behind with locals he'd trained who continued after he left, thus establishing the world's first 3D printing prosthetic lab and training facility. Mick also created the Eyewriter: a DIY, open-source, low-cost device that enables individuals with paralysis to communicate and create art using only the movement of their eyes.

    Susan Sarandon was honored with the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award for Global Citizenship. The Academy-Award winning actress and social and economic activist's charitable work includes serving as an ambassador for UNICEF, on the board of advisors for the Yele Haiti Foundation, and on the Advisory Committee for FilmAid International. She also has served on the Amazon Conservation Team (ACT) Board of Directors and is now on their Advisory Board. Susan was Action Against Hunger0s award recipient at the "Restaurants Against Hunger Campaign" gala in 2006, in honor of World Food Day.

    Common was presented the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award for Education. Common, who is a multiple Grammy Award-winning hip hop artist, poet, and guest speaker known to motivate and empower collegiate minds at prestigious universities across the country. In 2000, he launched his own philanthropic effort, The Common Ground Foundation, whose mission is dedicated to the empowerment and development of disadvantaged youth in urban communities by mentoring in three areas: character development, creative expression and healthy living.

    "The incredible efforts of the humanitarians who were honored this year serve as a testament to the fact that one person can change the world. Muhammad Ali is a living example of that statement. It is our hope that these awards create a catalyst in younger generations to get out and make a difference," said Donald Lassere, President and CEO of the Muhammad Ali Center.

    Holly Robinson-Peete was a presenter, and Matt Lauer, host of NBC's Today Show, hosted the event.

  • Internationally renowned primatologist, Dr Jane Goodall DBE has spoken out against the suffering of primates at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (MPI) in Germany.

    Dr Goodall's call follows the joint investigation carried out by the BUAV and Soko Tierschutz at the MPI Tübingen facility in 2013-14 which uncovered the shocking use of primates for basic research into how their brains process information. Harrowing video footage filmed during the investigation featured on Stern TV and has caused a media and political storm. In Germany, there has been extensive media coverage of the investigation, causing public outcry and leading to calls for the local government of Baden Württemberg to take action against the facility.

    The investigation revealed the immense suffering of primates, who were forced to take part in experiments through the use of severe water deprivation and physical and psychological coercion. The monkeys were subjected to major surgery to implant head posts and/or head chambers into their skulls; many suffered bruised and bleeding head wounds. During the experiments, the water deprived monkeys were imprisoned by their necks in devices – with their heads held rigid by a surgically implanted post – inside dark, silent chambers and forced to carry out mundane tasks over and over for up to five hours a day, five days a week, month after month, in order to receive a small fluid reward.

    Dr. Jane Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, told the BUAV: "I have just watched the video footage of experiments involving implantation of some kind of device into the brains of rhesus macaques at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, Germany. I have seldom been as sickened by any experiments -- and the fact that this "basic research" was carried out under the auspices of an institution as highly respected as the Max Planck makes it even more shocking. In fact I cannot understand how permits were granted to conduct experiments that can lead to the kind of suffering depicted in the video. I certainly hope that this research will be stopped, immediately, and the monkeys removed from those responsible for these unethical procedures. In addition they should be provided with some relief for their obvious suffering."

    The BUAV and Soko Tierschutz, have submitted a full report to the Regierungspräsidium Tübingen, the local authority responsible for licensing the primate experiments. The animal organisations have argued that, because the researchers at the MPI failed to provide sufficient and accurate information about harms and benefits and alternatives, the authority in Tübingen had failed to apply the legal tests required by the legislation before granting licences for the primate experiments.

  • As the Maryland Renaissance Festival continues to offer elephant and camel rides, rock icon Joan Jett, who grew up in the Old Line State, has fired off a letter calling on fair organizers to nix the rides.

    As Jett points out, these animals suffer when they're confined, dragged from venue to venue, and beaten into obedience—and large wild animals pose a safety risk to members of the public, especially children.

    "As someone who grew up in the great state of Maryland, I am writing on behalf of PETA to urge you to cancel the elephant and camel rides at the state's Renaissance festival," she wrote in the letter. "Unlike musicians such as me, these wild animals do not choose to perform. In the desert, where they belong, camels live in social herds. When they are hauled around and forced to give rides, they are confined to transport trailers and small pens and denied adequate socialization, along with everything else that is natural and important to them. Elephants used for rides are trained through domination, fear, and punishment — including beatings with sharp metal bullhooks, which trainers use to strike and jab the animals on the most sensitive parts of their bodies. Furthermore, multiton elephants pose a serious danger to the public, especially when they are under constant stress from confinement and beatings. These large, powerful animals have knocked over stairways, grabbed members of the public, and lashed out at their handlers. In 2009, an elephant used for rides injured 15 children after becoming spooked.

    "Please celebrate another era with talented, willing human entertainers, not by exploiting wild animals captured and abused by humans. My friends at PETA and I — along with other organizations that have contacted you — respectfully request that you cancel the elephant and camel rides immediately and keep them out of your lineup in the future."

    PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that "animals are not ours to use for entertainment" — has posted an action alert on its website, which tens of thousands of people have already used to call on the festival to cancel the rides. The alert notes that Franklin Murray — the man providing the fair with these animals — was arrested for contempt of court in relation to four counts of alleged cruelty to animal charges. He has posted bail and continues to operate his elephant-exhibiting business.

  • The producers of the upcoming feature drama "The Good Lie" have teamed up with organizations including the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help South Sudanese children in crisis and Lost Boys and Girls' communities.

    This partnership represents a new wave in film and cause collaborations. UNICEF has played an integral role in the survival, protection and development of Sudan and South Sudan's children since 1965. The Good Lie Fund, the philanthropic initiative of "The Good Lie" film, will help to drive donations to support UNICEF's emergency relief programs in the region.

    "The Good Lie" follows several of the approximately 20,000 refugees displaced during the second Sudanese Civil War, which began in 1983 and continued through 2005. Their stories reflect those of the children who traveled as many as a thousand miles on foot to reach refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya and the nearly 4,000 who eventually resettled in the United States. Three years ago, South Sudan became the world's newest country after enduring decades of civil war. In December 2013, this young nation found itself embroiled in civil conflict again and has forced the displacement of approximately 1.8 million people.

    UNICEF is working closely with partners to quickly and efficiently respond to the needs of those displaced by the crisis. The organization has already provided access to safe water to 450,000 people, and vaccinated 570,000 children against measles and polio. Some 57,000 children suffering from severe malnutrition have received treatment, and UNICEF hopes to increase that number to 120,000 by the end of the year.

    The U.S. Fund for UNICEF has also produced a Public Service Announcement featuring two of the Sudanese actors from the film that will be shown in select theaters across the country. Emmanuel Jal, a former child soldier who stars in the film and will be featured in the PSA has said, "‘The Good Lie' is the biggest gift that Hollywood has ever given Sudan or South Sudan and its refugees, because it's no longer the story of the Lost Boys, it's the story of humanity, the story of the struggle of children and how they survived."

    "We applaud the filmmakers, the cast and everyone involved in "The Good Lie," which gives the children of Sudan a voice to tell their story," said Caryl M. Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. "While thousands of people are watching the film across the country, UNICEF and its partners will continue to help save and protect the lives of vulnerable children in South Sudan today. We urgently need the American public's attention and support in aiding these children and their families."

    The film's release comes on the cusp of the September 25 Ministerial High-Level Meeting on South Sudan during the 69th Session of the United Nations General Assembly where 17 non-governmental organizations released a joint statement on the conflict in South Sudan -- many of whom have additionally partnered with the film to leverage it to broaden their reach, cause, and public understanding of the lives of refugees.

    To learn more about these partnerships or how you can help support humanitarian efforts for Sudanese refugees, please visit TheGoodLieFund.org.

    Warner Bros. together with Joanna Coles, Peter Godwin, Dr. Amanda Foreman, Gayle King, Diane Sawyer, Mike Nichols, George Stephanopoulos, Fareed Zakaria and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF co-hosted a special New York screening of "The Good Lie" Tuesday, September 30 at The Time Warner Center. "The Good Lie" opens in limited theatrical engagements October 3, 2014. It stars Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal and Kuoth Wiel, all of whom are of Sudanese descent; and Corey Stoll. Directed by Philippe Falardeau from a screenplay by Margaret Nagle, "The Good Lie" was produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Karen Kehela Sherwood, Molly Smith, Thad Luckinbill and Trent Luckinbill. Andrew A. Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Kim Roth, Ellen H. Schwartz, Deepak Nayar, and Bobby and Deb Newmyer served as executive producers. The creative filmmaking team included director of photography Ronald Plante, production designer Aaron Osborne, editor Richard Comeau, costume designer Suttirat Anne Larlarb and composer Martin Leon.

    A presentation of Alcon Entertainment, Imagine Entertainment and Black Label Media, "The Good Lie" is a Black Label Media, Imagine Entertainment and Reliance Entertainment production and will be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

  • Music Is Hope Foundation has released the music EP "Summertime" featuring the renowned Julian Lennon and Meninos Do Morumbi for the Meninos do Morumbi & Friends album project.

    Featuring poignant vocals by Lennon backed by a hypnotic Brazilian rhythm by Flavio Pimenta and the students of Meninos do Morumbi, the track includes Lennon's longtime friend, co-writer & guitarist, Justin Clayton, with additional percussion provided by Meninos do Morumbi alumnus Julio Santos. Grammy Award winning producer John Jones, who is featured on bass, guitars and keyboards, first conceived the project. Jones has worked with Paul McCartney, Celine Dion, Sir George Martin, and Fleetwood Mac, among others.

    "I don't know how we could have had a better singer or human being to share this song with," said Jones. "His great voice, and his natural empathy for the plight of children, made him a perfect fit."

    Julian Lennon, who embraces both environmental and humanitarian issues, launched his career with 1984's Valotte, produced by Phil Ramone, earning him a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist in 1985 and spawning two top ten hits, title track "Valotte" and "Too Late for Goodbyes." His second album, The Secret Value of Daydreaming, included his first #1 single in the U.S. His latest album, Everything Changes, was released in 2013 and received critical acclaim.

    Music Is Hope Foundation produces and markets music featuring children performing alongside notable musicians, writers, and producers. The foundation is dedicated to the belief that music education enhances a child's ability to learn and develop the self-esteem and passion to improve their community and the world at large.

    Meninos do Morumbi is a Brazilian organization that teaches music and performing arts to children growing up in challenging conditions. The organization, founded by its President Drummer Flavio Pimenta in the mid-'90s, started with 3 boys, and reached a peak of 2,000 boys and girls. Due to the severe economic downturn it now accommodates just a few hundred students. Meninos has enjoyed visits from Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, two U.S. Secretaries of State, the British Prime Minister, the President of the United States, and has performed with John Mayer and the Notre Dame marching band.

    "Summertime" can be purchased from the Music Is Hope Foundation website, iTunes, Amazon and cdbaby, and is available for streaming on Spotify. Donations can be made at the website.

  • Award-winning British singer-songwriters Kate Nash and Leona Lewis have joined with bunny lovers from all over the world to say, 'Bunnies are for cuddling, not cosmetics testing".

    The stars donated bunny selfies in support of Humane Society International's #BeCrueltyFree campaign for a worldwide end to cosmetics testing on rabbits, guinea pigs, mice and other animals.

    Kate tweeted a photo of herself with Fluffy: "My bunny Fluffy is my best friend. I love her so much, and I'd never let anyone hurt her. It's so sad to think that there are thousands of rabbits just as lovely as Fluffy, trembling in laboratories as chemicals are dripped in their eyes to test cosmetics. Bunnies are for cuddling, not cruel cosmetics testing. That's why Fluffy and I support HSI's #BeCrueltyFree campaign. Let's end testing cosmetics on animals once and for all!"

    Leona Lewis and Melrose

    Leona tweeted a selfie of herself and Melrose sharing a kiss: "I want bunnies to #BeCrueltyFree with @HSIGlobal let's end cosmetics cruelty!" The Glassheart singer also recently posted an article on her Lee-Loy Blog about her desire to see a global end to cosmetics animal testing.

    Leona's blog reads: "Ending animal testing is also about getting laws changed, Bills introduced, advancing cutting-edge science, lobbying politicians and grabbing some serious face time in the beauty brand board room to get things changed. And for that you need kick-ass campaigners who know what they're talking about. Our favourite bunny-hugging beauty crusaders are the #BeCrueltyFree campaign from Humane Society International."

    Rabbits are commonly used to test cosmetics alongside smaller animals such as mice. In skin and eye irritation tests first developed in the 1940s, rabbits are held in full body restraints so that chemicals can be dripped in their eyes or spread on their shaved skin. These tests are notoriously unreliable as well as cruel.

    The European Union, Norway, Israel and India have all banned animal testing for cosmetics, and bans are being considered in Australia, Brazil, New Zealand, Taiwan, and the United States. The #BeCrueltyFree campaign has been a driving force behind much of this global progress.

    Hundreds of cruelty-free companies around the world such as LUSH, Lippy Girl and Barry M, produce safe products without animal testing. They do so by using existing ingredients combined with available state-of-the-art non-animal tests.

    Say NO to cosmetics cruelty -- sign the #BeCrueltyFree pledge and follow #BeCrueltyFree on Facebook.
