Katie Cleary, Joanna Krupa and Care2 to Deliver 140,000 Petition Signatures to DASH Store in Calabasas to Protest Fur Sales
Petition Calls on Kardashian Sisters to Stop Selling Fur in DASH Stores and Online
Calabasas, California – Katie Cleary & Joanna Krupa will deliver over 140,000 petition signatures to the DASH store in Calabasas, California calling on the Kardashian sisters – Kim, Khloe and Kourtney – to stop selling fur at their store and online.
Both Katie and Joanna have been animal activists for years and feel that women in the spotlight have a responsibility to stand up for animals and raise awareness about what animals go through in the fur trade. “No living being should have to endure the amount of pain that these animals go through for us!”, said Katie Cleary.
“One of the most influential families in the entertainment industry that could help give animals a voice on a large scale are the Kardashians. As a fashion-forward family with their clothing line in stores all over the US, they have the power to influence millions of people around the world,” said Joanna Krupa.
