This is from an "I'm Tired" press release, so feel free to (kindly) repost.
Just as the new season of National Geographic Channel's "Dogtown" is about to get underway, the cast got cozy with their favorite "Vicktory Dogs," rescued from the abuse of former NFL Quarterback Michael Vick, while showing off their "I'm Tired of Animal Cruelty" bracelets. Half the sale ($5) of each $10 bracelet goes to benefit Best Friends Animal Society, the rescue and rehabilitation center where "Dogtown" takes place.
Best Friends Animal Society was responsible for rescuing 22 of the Michael Vick Pit Bulls and bringing them to Utah for rehabilitation. Six of the show's human stars, as well as the rest of the cast, will be wearing their bracelets on the new season of the show and supporting the fundraising efforts of the "I'm Tired of..." (ITo) campaign.
The "I'm Tired of..." bracelets were created by brother and sister team, Dan Hoffman and Carrie Pollare, to fight against the world's issues that we are all tired of, like animal cruelty, world hunger, global warming, cancer, diabetes and so many more. The fashionable bracelets are made from recycled tires and
metals, creating a fun play on the word, tired, and cost just $10, so anyone can afford them. Then half the sale ($5) from each one is donated to charities the company is aligned with that support each cause. Best Friends Animal Society is the beneficiary of the sales of the animal cruelty bracelets.
The I'm Tired of Animal Cruelty bracelet can be purchased at www.ImTiredOnline.com, as well as bracelets supporting other causes, including AIDS, Autism, Alzheimer's, Cancer, Child Abuse, Diabetes, Global Warming, Heart Disease and World Hunger.
