Through Earth Day (April 22, 2010), secondhand-clothing store chain Buffalo Exchange and the Humane Society of the United States jointly host "Coats for Cubs."

Animal lovers are encouraged to clean out their closets (or parents' and grandparents' closets) and donate any tacky real-fur items found there (including fur trim, accessories and shearling) back to the animals.

Of course, it's too late to give the fur back to its original owner, but it can still be used as bedding for orphaned and injured wildlife -- and it doesn't do your conscience any harm, either.

Fur in any condition is accepted and can be brought to any Buffalo Exchange location. 

(If you'd like to claim your fur donation as a tax deduction, you'll need to mail it directly to the Humane Society rather than dropping it at Buffalo Exchange; mailing information is available at HSUS.org.)

More information at BuffaloExchange.com.

From my beautiful, sensitive friend, Minoo......


The expression of gratitude by the strong and able
is through lending a hand to the meek and unable.
- Excerpt from an old Persian poem


I have to be honest...Thanksgiving has always been one of my least favorite holidays of the year.  I wish it weren't so. I usually can't wait for it to be over before it's even begun. With the exception of greeting card commercials and the obligate feel-good message carried in holiday-time movies and TV specials, so much of what I see representing this potentially-beautiful holiday is about gluttony, focusing primarily on the turkey.

Starting in November and continuing through the end of December, popular culture in the US starts throwing around words and phrases like giving, thanks, love, peace on earth, and good will to all. Absolutely wonderful ideals I think we should ALL strive to live up to, and I LOVE that the holidays remind us of those universal ideals.

But every year, I feel such a deep sense of mourning and disappointment when I see that those words mean so little to so many of my fellow humans... empty sounds that are uttered without much meaning, and in most cases, with little - if any - action supporting the meaning.

Regardless of the origins of Thanksgiving, or what the religious, historical, or political implications may or may not have been, one thing is clear....we now primarily see it as a time to sit down and stuff ourselves in the company of friends and family, "feasting" at the expense of another being's loss of his or her life. If this being were in the furry body of a cat or dog then most people in the US would object. But those same people will often not think twice when the "feast" on their table happens to be derived from an animal who, by birth, fell into the unfortunate and arbitrary category of a "farm animal".

Whether the poor bird suffered unimaginable cruelty in a factory farm, or whether she lived in the farce that is known as "free-range", or even in the very unlikely scenario where she was raised by someone in their own backyard, she still faced an early and absolutely unnecessary death. And anyone who has spent any time with non-humans of various forms, will not doubt that she felt fear, agony, and horror right before she was killed... she and the 46 million other turkeys killed for this one day of thanks each year.

I guess ever since I was a little girl, and even now that I'm in my 40's, I've never been able to comprehend emotionally WHY people choose to celebrate a day of gratitude by killing an innocent being and feasting on him/her... and moreover, why they continue marking other holiday feasts of the season, like their Christmas dinner, with similar choices. Where is the gratitude, good will, joy, or peace in that? How is that consistent with the values we teach this time of year? Why do we voluntarily choose killing over life - especially so in a holy season with such beautiful non-violent ideals?

There are many peaceful alternatives for having a scrumptious feast to share with friends and family, and even further, to share with fellow humans in need. And if you don't like the alternatives, you can certainly create your own. Alternatives that are NOT derived from suffering or death. Alternatives that allow us to teach our children that LIFE IS SACRED to every being. That BREATH IS SACRED to every being. And based on that, to teach them, that first and foremost, we must give thanks for those sacred gifts of Life and Breath.

Traditions change all the time. Any student of history, anthropology, or sociology can probably point out dozens of known traditions that have evolved or simply changed form, meaning, and practice in the relatively short history of humankind. Now in this 21st century, I do hope that one by one, more humans will come to abandon the practice of unnecessarily killing another being for the "pleasure" of their stomachs, and that they will redefine the traditions of this holiday season. Only then will Thanksgiving, and the festivities that follow through the end of the year, begin to honestly reflect the peaceful, loving ideals we all strive for during the holiday season.

Please choose peace over violence. Please choose kindness over killing. A happy and peaceful Thanksgiving to you and yours, with respect and gratitude to ALL life forms,

- minoo


P.S. A simple search on the internet will result in pages of information on the absolutely wonderful tasty alternatives for a peaceful and fulfilling meal!!

Holy smokes!

What started out, simply enough, as a hastily-written commentary on my experiences at Woodstock has turned into something bigger.

First off, I wrote the commentary because I am so sick and tired of all the people who write terrible, terrible things about what happened at Woodstock -- when they weren't even THERE!

http://tinyurl.com/CNN-iReport-Susie-Woodstock


Someone at CNN.com Live saw my iReport, called me, and had me interviewed live for the website.

http://tinyurl.com/CNN-Susie-Woodstock


Well, early this morning, I was awakened by a call from a CNN producer in Atlanta, asking me if it'd be okay to send a car to pick me up and drive me to the Los Angeles CNN studios to be interviewed on camera.... in 2-1/2 hours.  Man, did I freak out!  I was running around, trying to pick out clothing that would hide my embarrassing weight gain, emailing friends, etc.

Lucky for me (I think), the producer rang me back and said he wants me on live on SUNDAY (still tomorrow, here on the West Coast). 

Sooooooooooo........... I'm scheduled to be interviewed, LIVE, on CNN television, during the 4:00 hour of "CNN Newsroom."  Now, mind you, that's 4:00 on the East Coast, so for those of us who live out West, I'll be on during the 1:00 hour. 

The producer said it may be as late into the hour as 1:25PM but, if there's a lot of breaking news, whatever, I'll just hold tight.  There's always the NEXT hour of "CNN Newsroom," too.

So ask me if I'm nervous.  I AM SO FREAKING NERVOUS!!!!!!!!!!

But for those of you who also got to go to Woodstock, or wish they had, please send out strong wishes that my mind works well tomorrow, so I listen well to each question, and then ANSWER each question with some bit of intelligence. 

Okay, all that said, I'm going to try to get to bed early tonight, so I maybe will get a FEW hours of decent sleep in between the awakening times when I realize that I'm going to be on live tv in just a few more hours.

Hugs to all,

Susie
PEACE

FROM CNN - iReport..........

Woodstock 1969, New York //
Last updated: Aug 11, 2009




I and my fellow musician-friends drove up in a VW bus (of COURSE!).

Our first feelings of real exhilaration were when once we drove out of New Jersey (from Morristown),  got on the New York Thruway, and saw that most of the other cars to either side of ours were filled with hippies, also heading on up to Woodstock.  So many smiles and waves back and forth!  None of us yet knew what utter joy awaited all of us.

We arrived very early on Friday, so were fortunate enough to be able to park on the main road just before the little town of Bethel.  Then we walked, carrying our blankets, our food, our dope, our binoculars, whatever else.  This thin road, flanked by parked cars, was filled with other happy hippies.

When we reached the corner, before turning right to the main road (and final stretch), we saw a little grocery store to our left.  We decided to stock up even more.  When we got inside, the shelves were already nearing the bare state because so many before us had thought the same way.

Then, as we turned right to now head up to the entrance gate, a lovely old couple came out of their house (I believe it was the first one on the right, so at the intersection,) and they hooked up their garden hose and gestured to us to come onto their massive front lawn to drink water from their hose.  We had expected the possibility of hostility from the neighborhood folks – instead, we were greeted with genuine warmth and love… and giving.  A fine beginning to what ended up being the times of our lives for the next four wonderful days.

Just as we were about to pull out our $18.00 tickets, someone called out that the gate and fence were coming down, and admission was now free!  Wow!  Some of us are lucky enough to have peace symbols made from that fencing.

And now we entered the official concert area.  To our right, there was this lonnnnng row of Port-O-Sans, already nearing overflow.  There was the Hog Farm encampment.  And ahead of us and mostly to our left were, closest, the stage, and then the pasture’s natural bowl, already filling with many thousands of people.

We were lucky enough to park ourselves dead center, about halfway back from the stage, and there’s where we remained for the entire time, other than to make bathroom or bathing trips.

I remember meeting up with another girl who was looking for a place to pee, so we teamed up, and hiked through hundreds of people, then got into a lush woodsy area, where we found a surprisingly isolated and private spot to pee.  Then we walked over to the lake, took off our clothes, and went into the water to clean up.  Nice.

My guys and I didn’t miss ANY of the performances.  We were there FOR the music.  And for me, personally, it was my first break from a few years of peacefully protesting that damn Vietnam war, and working some on the Civil Rights Movement (going down South with my folks to help make changes, and drinking from the “For Coloreds Only” water fountains, and using the outhouses instead of the gas station bathrooms, which were for whites only), pushing for women’s rights, etc.  There had been three mind-numbing assassinations, and just so much horror going on.  Oh, and I had been brutally raped, impregnated, then given a legal late-term abortion earlier that year. It was time to just plain GET AWAY FROM IT ALL for a few days!

Also, ‘til then, I’d been rather shy (I was the kid in junior and high school whom everyone picked on) and leery of most people.

So here I was, at Woodstock, surrounded by 500,000 beautiful people, and I felt comfortable and safe and at peace and cared about and just on a natural high (for real).

I can’t name too many particular high points, because I was high and EVERYTHING was a high point, but I definitely remember when that helicopter started approaching from the south, and some of us began to feel a bit of paranoia, because it appeared to be a military helicopter.  And when the helicopter finally flew above us, and just hovered, I admit to a moment or two of blind fear.  Then the cargo doors opened, and out dropped thousands and thousands of DAISIES!!!!!  Daisies!  What a glorious moment!

Okay, okay, other high points… Jimi Hendrix at dawn… the man in white robes, just after the storm, who didn’t have a speck of mud or raindrops on him, who shuffled his way past us… Tim Hardin… the beautiful tall woman with the rainbow Afro… Canned Heat… watching the young, oh-so-cute Martin Scorsese (decades later, again seeing him at a Robert Altman memorial)… The Who (and Tommy!)… the bathing lake… Richie Havens… the generosity of everyone sharing everything… the homegrown pot… Sly and the Family Stone, who really got all of us on our feet… the good, good doctors and nurses… Grateful Dead… the Hog Farm… darling, darling, darling Max Yasgur… Santana…the walls of notes… sweet Melanie… Blood, Sweat and Tears (with Al Kooper, and Randy, Steve, Fred, Jim, Dick, Jerry, Bobby)… the uplifting no-rain chant… wonderful Arlo Guthrie… the knock-out Janis Joplin… the letter I wrote to someone onstage, which we watched being passed down person by person all the way to the stage and into the hands of my friend… Bert Sommer… the mud-sliders… Country Joe (and The Fish)… the breastfeeding mothers… Crosby, Stills, Nash (and Young)… the cute guy (from Pittsburg, maybe?) who stepped on a shard of glass and everyone who ran to help him out…Ravi Shankar…the LSD and mescaline just handed out…Johnny and Edgar Winter… the very end, when the pasture was covered with blankets and left-behinds, and those who stayed to help clean up…Ten Years After (having just seen them at Fillmore East)… the sharing of blankets and tarps during the rainstorm… The Paul Butterfield Blues Band… the goodness all around me… The Band… the fantastic announcement of the birth of a baby… my mother’s blanket left behind…

I loved seeing so many babies and young children there, as it should be.  After all, we were now a city unto ourselves.  I lost almost all my remaining inhibitions at Woodstock.

The rain was just another part of being at Woodstock. So what if the Port-O-Sans couldn’t be used; Mother Nature had lots of available places, too.  No fights.  No arguments.  No rudeness.  No envy.  Nothing bad happened, mostly because no one wanted anything bad TO happen.

We didn’t leave Woodstock until well into late afternoon on Monday, and it was with a feeling of sadness and already-budding nostalgia, but also overwhelming elation that we’d just been part of musical history.

When I got home to Morristown, my parents were having another one of their ecumenical meetings in our little house, so I was greeted with mixed reactions.  But one of my parents’ friends, an Episcopal priest (who always knew I was an atheist) got up, and came over and gave me another one of his grand, massive, love-filled hugs, even though I was still covered with dried mud.

For two nights, I slept in my Woodstock jeans, on the floor of my bedroom.  I could not part with either my jeans or especially that magical mud.  I went so far as to finally go into our lovely garden in the backyard, where I undressed, and then hosed off my clothes so that all that Woodstock mud would go into our garden, to be there forever.

To this day, I can still cry about my life-changing (perhaps even life-saving) experiences at Woodstock, and I hope with all my heart that, as long as my brain functions, I never forget any of my wondrous time with that music, those people, the images, and the love and peace I truly felt envelop me.

Woodstock, you are very much a part of me, and I thank you for happening.

Love and peace,

Susie

Hi Susie,

 

Thank you so much for your VERY generous support.  My daughter Ella did get re-transplanted today and is currently recovering here at UCLA.  We are hopeful that this new liver will stay with her for the new life she now has.  Your support and outreach is truly amazing, and myself and my family are stunned and amazed at the fact that people unknown to us are willing to do something so significant to save our child’s life.  Thank you a million times!

 

Jennifer

Don't know how to make this an ALERT instead of what Care2's classified it (as a blog).  This is an ALERT, and it's life-threateningly serious!


[So if you already received this, my apologies, but I wanted to try to make SURE this came across to everyone as an ALERT.]



Seriously, I'm emailing this to everybody, even if you live 3,000 miles away. Maybe there's a RICH person who can afford to fly out.  Maybe you know someone in Southern California who might be a donor.

This little baby Ella is at UCLA, in Westwood, California.

My friend Jennifer and her husband Doug have 24+ hours (this Wednesday 11/19) to find a liver for their nine month old baby. She was diagnosed with leukemia several months ago, and after intensive chemo had a liver transplant last Friday, which didn’t take.  

Ella is only 15 lbs so they need the left lobe from someone under 130 lbs with O blood type. No one in their family fits that category, so we’re sending a plea out to friends and family to see if anyone can help. Its a huge favor to ask of someone, but considering the circumstances, it’s absolutely necessary to ask everyone we know, otherwise Ella will die.

If you know of anyone who could and would be a likely candidate to help save Ella’s life, please contact Jennifer Fine IMMEDIATELY at jennifer@bestfriends.org.

She is by her computer and hoping and praying to have Ella’s guardian angel contact her in time. Please contact her ONLY if you have a strong potential lead, as time is of the essence.

Sincerely,

Rory Freedman on Ellen 

"Skinny Bitch" 

Friday

 May 23  

NBC 

 

 

From: Karen Coyne

Rory talked with Ellen for about 15 minutes (they taped the show yesterday, and it will air on Friday, 5/23).  

 

Ellen read Rory's book and is now vegan, hardcore!!  

 

Ellen called Oprah to ask about how to handle the "vegan" issue on television (meat/dairy industries have laws protecting them from free speech, etc.), and she found out that Oprah has also been vegan for the last two weeks.  This is really huge.  

 

But even two powerful people like them would have a very difficult time up against the meat and  dairy industries, which are much more powerful than oil industries.  But this is definitely a leap toward compassion for animals, good health, prosperous environment, etc.

Please forward this to all your contacts and groups, and advise them if they can be on call for either evacuation, or loading/unloading the Gentle Barn animals when we finally can bring them back home, to email me: Susie@JarrettLennon.com
 
We need loving people to come to Animal Acres and help feed and water our rescued rescues.  We need food!  We need bedding!  We need everything you can think of that goes with farm animals to make them comfortable, calm, and feeling safe.  So LOVE is a good thing to bring along, too!  If you come to Animal Acres, tell them Susie sent you; that way we'll know if this system's working.
 
I'd like getting emails so I can compile massive lists of who and what can do what.  We need folks on standby (always, not only now) in case Animal Acres needs to evacuate -- standby with trailers, trucks, the ability to load and unload panicked animals.  So email this to every group and person imaginable, so that they, in turn can email me with any and all information. 
 
And please thank all these people FOR me, okay? 
 
Thank you, everybody, who's been contacting me non-stop to offer help!  It's AMAZING how many of you love animals that much!!!!!!

EMERGENCY EVACUATION UPDATE

We want to thank everyone for their calls and emails regarding our situation, and for your commitment to the safety of the sanctuary animals. Currently, we are not in a fire zone, however, we are assisting Gentle Barn, another farm animal sanctuary, with their evacuation and temporary animal placement needs due to the fires in the Agua Dulce/Santa Clarita area. Fortunately, because of the dedication of volunteers and individuals who helped us buy animal transport trailers, WE WERE ABLE TO SAFELY EVACUATE ALL OF THEIR ANIMALS, and the animals are now being cared for at Animal Acres.

 
 
Given the state of emergency in southern California, it is clear that additional fire evacuation areas need to be established for farm animals, and we are focusing all our efforts on this over the next two weeks. We DESPERATELY need YOU to help with this effort.
 
 
 
 
 
 
PLEASE help by:

1. Coming to Animal Acres to help care for evacuated animals here. We need caregivers from 9 am. to 3 p.m. daily. No appointment is necessary. Directions may be found at animalacres.org.

2. Volunteering to help set up an emergency evacuation area for the Animal Acres animals. We need volunteers to help put up fencing and other jobs. The more volunteers who can pitch-in, the sooner we can have a site ready for evacuation needs. Volunteers are needed EVERY DAY from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call (661-269-5404) if you can join us, and let us know what day(s) you'll be joining us.

3. Donating for evacuation needs. We URGENTLY need funding for temporary housing sheds, evacuation site fencing and corrals, water troughs & water hoses - and we need to purchase one additional transport trailer to be able to evacuate all of the animals immediately. Your donation, in any amount, will means so much. Please click here to donate online.

On behalf of ALL of us at Animal Acres, and the animals who need our assistance at this difficult time, THANK YOU.
