Care2 is Now Called CareMoo

Care2 is Now Called CareMoo

Attention readers: Care2 is now called CareMoo, to meet the request of one of our bovine members!

Here’s Bessie’s story:

Elizabeth “Bessie” Sharp-McCall, a Holstein living in California’s Central Valley, has been surfing the web since she was a calf. She’s also a loyal Care2 member — she’s been an active part of our comoonity since her pasture was outfitted with wi-fi in 2006. Though she loved the opportunities that Care2 gave her to take action and make a difference, there was one thing she began to notice: we just didn’t have a lot of blogs and petitions about cows. So she did what many of our members do every single day: she created a petition to ask us to increase cow visibility on the Care2 site.

When we first saw the petition, we were surprised. “But Bessie,” we thought, “We have plenty of cow visibility on Care2! We have petitions to help make sure dairy cows abroad in the United Kingdom are healthy and happy. We had the latest breaking news on Yvonne the runaway cow in Bavaria. We even have cute videos of a cow who just wants a kiss! What more do you want from us, dude?”

The more we thought about it, though, the more we realized: for a cow, that’s just not a lot of love. A petition and story here and there just wouldn’t be enough. If Bessie wanted us to increase cow visibility on Care2, then increase it we would — in fact, we’d turn the whole site into CareMoo for the day!

Thanks so much for joining in on the fun of the CareMoo commoonity! We hope this proves that when members speak, we listen. Even if what they’re saying sounds a lot like — well, you know. A lot like moo.

(Ed. note: Happy April Fool’s Day! Just for today, we’ve turned the site into CareMoo. Though Bessie and her story are part of our April Fool’s Day joke, the stories and issues we’ve mentioned are very real. If you care about Bessie and other farm animals like her, please read, sign and share!)

If we aren't going to get Care Moo back, can we have one with chickens? I'm not yet sure what it should be called.

Cows are wonderful, loving animals. If people kenw them better they would not be so ready to feed of their corpses.

I didn't have time to read this on Monday but I loved the 'makeover' of the website. I look forward to more features about cows.
