WATCH: Mercy for Animals Unveils Pro-Vegetarian Commercials to Air on MTV

Mercy for Animals (MFA) recently held an exclusive event in New York City to raise funds for the TV ads. Along with Founder/President Nathan Runkle , John Norris , former MTV News correspondent, was there to premiere the new commercials. The ads will begin airing on MTV in New York and Los Angeles, but the organization is planning for them to air nationally. The fundraiser included delicious vegan food from Blossom Restaurant and Vegan Treats, as well as drinks from vegan bar Pine Box Rock Shop. According to Runkle on the MFA Blog , “Designed to raise awareness about the plights of farmed animals, who suffer out of sight, out of mind, at the hands of the meat, dairy and egg industries, this hugely successful event raised tens of thousands of dollars to help ensure these groundbreaking ads will soon be seen by millions of young adults on MTV from coast to coast.”
