It
might have looked to passersby like we were having a sleepover at the Bob Barker Building, PETA’s Los Angeles
office. Throngs of teens and kids came in toting blankets as well as bags full
of leashes, collars, toys, and towels to donate to homeless animals at shelters
run by L.A. Animal Services. But this wasn’t your average blanket drive.

Some
of the most compassionate young stars in Hollywood came out to support peta2 (PETA’s youth division)
and PETA Kids, the joint hosts of the event. Renee OlsteadChristian SerratosFivel StewartHaley PullosPia Toscano, Miranda Mayo, Bret Lockett of the New
York Jets, and Randall of “Honey Badger
Don’t Care” fame collected donations, took pictures with fans, and helped
kids make buttons to take home and catnip toys for the shelters’ cats. At the
end of the day, we had collected more than 19 boxes full of donations and
mountains of goodwill for animals.
