It isn't often that I get really REALLY riled but there are some things that I just cannot tolerate. And cruelty to children and animals is right up there at the top, and I make no apologies.
I was just off to do the rounds when I came across this on Kaths blog. She saw it on Sams.

If you click on the link, it will take you to a site and there is a video on there which is pretty horrible to say the least so I will warn you that if you are likely to get upset, please dont watch it. But just take it from me that it is shocking. I only managed to watch 10 seconds then I had to turn it off - I know I will have nightmares about it for weeks.

I never realised that Mars were involved in such dreadful cruelty - and all in the name of chocolate - why??????

I am only putting this on here cos there is a petition on that site which, if you feel like me, you will probably want to sign, and I'm guessing that like me, you were not aware that Mars were involved in this sort of thing. I will never buy or eat anything that has come from them again. Sam's reasons for posting was that if it saves just one animals life, then it will have been worth it.

Something nicer tomorrow but I had to put this on cos I am so angry and upset. And thanks to Kath and Sam for highlighting this. TFS xx

Thanks so much for posting about this and for getting people involved ... if anyone is in any doubt about its validiy I urge them to google PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) or write to Masterfoods (who own Mars) and find out more information for themselves rather than just taking my word for it :)

By the way, lovely blog you have here, some really beautiful creations :)

Hi Dawny

Found your blog through Cheryl's. Great post on Mars - afraid I can't look at the animal cruelty thing - it would be too upsetting. But I will spread the word about their products.

Btw I love your cards! They are just fabulous. Will be linking to your blog and visiting from time to time.

love and light

Hi Dawny
I know, this is disgusting - I've got it on mine too and like you couldn't bring myself to watch the video.
No more Mars products for me...
Who knew what was going on????
Hope you are well
Dawn
