Help Us #MakeFurHistory this #GivingTuesday
Is it fur
or faux? It’s not always easy to tell, particularly with the increased
technology in faux, and often dyed, cut or otherwise manipulated real fur. But
there is one way to determine if fur is real or not: put it under a microscope.
Fur-Bearers need to purchase a microscope that we can use as part of our
#MakeFurHistory campaign to expose real fur sold as faux in stores. Our plan is
simple: buy questionable products, put them under the lens, and determine
whether they have real fur or fake fur. If it’s real, it gives us the
opportunity to show the need for a Fur Labelling Act, increase awareness about
the cruelty of fur, and fight for change for the animals.
on purchasing a microscope with a digital camera (so we can share our findings
with you, the retailers we purchase from, and the media), and the costs for the
microscope (as well as the required slides) are approximately $475.58 after
taxes. Any funds raised beyond that goal will be put toward the purchasing of questionable
products, printing of our pamphlets, and other campaign-related costs. Please
consider supporting this initiative as part of your #GivingTuesday, and help us
#MakeFurHistory for the animals.
