PETA Offers To Help Lindsay Lohan With Rehab Bill
Rehab is expensive, but going vegan is free. For Lindsay Lohan, it even pays: PETA has offered to sponsor the troubled star if she publicly renounces meat and animal products.
Lohan, 24, who is enrolled in rehab until 2011, has reportedly been having trouble with the hefty bill, which would cost her around $53,000 dollars for the full three months she's scheduled to stay. PETA has offered her a sliding scale offer of assistance: $20,000 if she gives up animal products, another $10,000 if she stays vegan during the entire rehab stint and $10,000 for a following year of veganism. "A crucial part of recovery is showing charity to others. One way to do this is to be kind to animals, the Earth, and your body," the letter tells her.
"Lindsay Lohan is the most visible example of a real addict, and if she can conquer her addiction to meat and cheese, absolutely anyone can," PETA President Ingrid Newkirk told the Los Angeles Times. "If she does, she'll not only save animals but save her own health, and she'll be an example to the millions of people who watch her every step." –AMY LEE
Read the full letter below:
We understand that you've fallen on tough economic times, so we're writing to you with an offer that we sincerely hope you'll consider.
PETA will pay your bill for substance addiction treatment if you'll rid yourself of one more toxic substance: meat. A crucial part of recovery is showing charity to others. One way to do this is to be kind to animals, the Earth, and your body.
You'll never regret it.
When animals are crammed together on factory farms, disease spreads fast, so cows, chickens, and other animals are fed large amounts of antibiotics to make them grow quickly and keep them alive in filthy conditions that would otherwise kill them.
A clean, tasty vegan diet provides all the nutrients you need, minus contaminants, saturated fat, and cholesterol that are found in animal flesh, eggs, and dairy foods. Vegans also have stronger immune systems than meat-eaters.
Please let us know if you'd like to take us up on our offer.
