Fellow Care2 members - if you're an animal lover, please read this article too .....

Teresa W started a petition on April 25 2013, to ask Care2 to make this a Butterfly Credits item. The link is below, please check it out, SIGN and tell your friends !!!!!!!

This is a great idea - a cause where we could actually SEE our credits working - ask Care2 to give us the POSSIBILITY to support this cause with our Butterfly Credits !!!!

Come on all you members who have been stockpiling your credits - SIGN Teresa's petition and get this project moving - then you'll have something really special to support !!!

The petition reached the first 1,000 signatures in this first week but we need MANY MANY more signatures if this is going to be taken seriously ....... so please spread the word !!!!!

Apologies for posting "off subject" but I really feel this merits it - Thank you !!!
