Day 225: Shark Fin Soup Anyone? Stop the Killing of Sharks!


100 – 200 sharks are killed every year allow for one thing – shark fin soup. It is time to stop the killing of sharks.

Do you think that this won’t change the planet? Do you think killing sharks is not threatening the livelihood of our oceans.

Are you angry yet? I am. Yesterday my “give of the day” (day 224) was to help save dogs from a life of cruelty trapped in puppy mills. Today it’s sharks. Some days I feel there is more bad news than good in our world but I know there is good. I believe that people are born with goodness in their hearts. The Hunger Site has partnered with the Greater Good to prove that goodness. They are making the goodness available for everyone to share and give.

Day 225: Give 225

The Hunger Site features opportunities to give in so many ways. Pledges, petitions. donating. purchasing that gives, the list goes on. As well the choices of places to give are endless. Hunger, animal rescue, cancer, rainforests, literacy and more. They inspire me to give, pledge and sign petitions constantly. Today it was for the sharks of our planet. Have you ever thought of the imbalance to our oceans eco-system which in turn effects the entire planet? All for a bowl of soup. When did we stop being human and think only of the next dollar and stop thinking about our future. I think the answer is far too long coming and it’s time to take action.

Choose today to take action. Choose goodness, choose our planet, choose our future. Pledge to never eat shark fin soup. If we don’t feed the system it won’t work. Sign the petition to make our governments stand up and see what this is doing to our planet and to the sharks. When do we stop being inhuman to each other and to animals?
