On August 23rd, it would have been River’s 40th birthday, had we still been blessed with his presence.
River is best known for being an actor, but he was also a dedicated animal rights activist. His words made a difference; still to this day he inspires people to make the world a better place.
Kiefer Sutherland, co-star in Stand By Me, once said about River: “When he made a choice to do something, he followed through with it, and with a sincerity that was captivating and striking. “
Those words apply to everything River ever did, whether it was in his acting, his music or his passion for the world.
PETA was one of River’s favorite organizations and we feel that the best way to honor his memory and celebrate his life is to continue fighting for the things dearest to his heart.
Together, we can make the world a better place for all beings. Your donation will go to work instantly to help animals suffering and dying on factory farms and in laboratories, the fur industry, and circuses as well as other forms of “entertainment.”
He will never be forgotten. The River continues to flow.
