Petition to Adidas
Create Vegan Friendly Footwear Options with Faux Leather
The production of real leather requires the death and suffering of cows. Everyone knows this. So why do mainstream shoe companies still not carry faux leather options? Faux leather is cheaper to produce, lasts longer, and most importantly, does not harm animals. That's why it's absurd that a shoe company as successful and popular as Adidas does not carry vegan (faux leather) options in any of its styles. Not only does this prevent vegan and ethical shoppers from being able to purchase their shoes, but it perpetuates the idea that we as a society need to use leather. Would Adidas signature styles such as the Superstar and Stan Smith still be as stylish and highly sought-after if they were made with faux leather? I dare say they would. However, I recognize that making the leap from using real cow leather to using solely faux leather is a difficult process. Therefore, I propose a solution. Would it not be absolutely fantastic -- for both humans and animals- if Adidas was to come out with a line of faux leather versions of its most popular styles? This would be an idea that benefits everyone involved. Adidas would open up their market to vegan customers, vegan customers would be able to purchase a pair or two (or twenty) of fashionable new cruelty-free shoes, and fewer cows would have their lives taken for a fashion material that already has a cheaper, more durable alternative. Sign this petition if you agree that everyone would benefit from Adidas coming out with vegan/faux leather versions of their most popular styles. Signing won’t cost you a thing, but if we are successful, your signature may just save the life of an innocent animal.

It's Time For A Healthy, Meatless Option (Please!)
My name is Kathy Freston. I'm an author of books like Quantum Wellness: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to Health and Happiness, and some of you may have seen me talking about healthy living and conscious eating with Ellen Degeneres, Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Oz, or others on television or in print. I've been fortunate enough to reach millions of people with a positive message, and with this petition I’m hoping to bring a positive change to America with a mainstream meatless option at McDonald’s! Adding plant-based protein options at McDonald's will appeal to workers out for a quick lunch, families with health-conscious members out to dinner, children on field trips, and anyone looking for something different than the current menu at McDonald’s where even the french fries contain beef flavoring (they don't in Europe, incidentally)! According to a recent survey, more than one-third of Americans already buy meat substitutes for reasons that range from health to ethics! So why not make a meatless option available at one of America’s favorite restaurant chains for everyone to enjoy? Healthy living should be about progress, not perfection, and this is an easy step that McDonald’s could be taking. Sales of meat substitutes in the U.S. bring in over $553 million a year and visionaries like Bill Gates of Microsoft and Evan Williams and Biz Stone of Twitter are helping fund some of the many meatless options in development for mass markets. Meanwhile competitors like Chipotle have new braised tofu Sofritas, Tropical Smoothie added vegan chicken strips, and Burger King has a veggie burger! That's not even getting into the fact that KFC has vegan chicken in Canada (really, try it!), Subway already has a veggie patty, and McDonald's Canada has veggie wraps! We Americans love a protein center to our meal, so veggies and salads alone (or even in a wrap) won’t do the trick; we want something hearty and protein-centric just like the burgers and sandwiches you already have, only with something plant-based instead. In September, McDonald's partnered with President Bill Clinton (who improved his own health by eating plant-based foods) and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation to make some youth marketing improvements, but still left me and many members of the public wondering about people of all ages looking to lower cholesterol, reduce saturated fat intake, and cut calories. Offering an option that is completely without animal products is ideal, not only for those who don’t eat animal products for ethical reasons, but for those who are lactose intolerant or have egg allergies. Like many Americans, I’m over this "all or nothing" way of thinking by powerful decision makers in the government and in the corporate world. We need to work together to find positive ways to work towards common goals like eating healthier, farming sustainably, and treating animals with respect. In that spirit, one very simple step can come from fast food giant McDonald's adding a healthy, plant-based item to the menu in the United States. Truly, there can be something for everyone! Please sign my petition to support adding a healthy, meatless option at McDonald's.

Petition to Pizza Hut
Please bring back the Big New Yorker Pizza to Pizza Hut
Years ago, Pizza Hut had a new pizza they introduced called The Big New Yorker, which was a 16" pizza that has been discontinued for years. We, the fans, would like to see Pizza Hut bring this pizza back to their stores. It could be done for a limited time, but we hope to see it permanently added back to their menu.

Please release THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM on DVD/BluRay/digital stream and download
We have passed the 60th anniversary of Cinerama, and the 50th anniversary of the two Cinerama/MGM co-produced films that tell a narrative story. We appreciate the Warner disc release of HOW THE WEST WAS WON, and now four other original 3-strip Cinerama features are available on video, with the others being prepared for release. At this point the ONLY 3-Strip Cinerama film not on its way to video is MGM's epic family feature THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM. After WBHV's George Feltenstein reported "extensive damage" to the original 3 strip Cinerama WWotBG negatives in 2009, we learned that the negative damage is actually minimal and limited to only the edge of one of the three panels. There reportedly is also an undamaged 65mm composite negative (containing all 3 panels) of WWotBG that might be a viable source to master from. The Cinerama travelogues have been mastered by Image Trends, with new technology called Digital ICE that purports to be able to restore or repair film to its original look. This company has worked with both 65mm composite and 3 strip Cinerama elements already, with results good enough to sell on disc and broadcast on TCM. We are aware that the version of the film regularly broadcast on Turner Classic Movies was updated to include parts previously missing from the home video versions, and reveals more of the picture than was visible on the laserdisc. Comparison images are viewable at http://cineramahistory.com/grimmtcm.htm. With their sponsoring involvement in the Hollywood Cinerama festival, and having discussed the possibility of showing WWotBG at their own festival in Spring 2013, clearly our friends at TCM have a keen interest in this film. If the film were digitally remastered, TCM would then have a much better version to broadcast, especially in HD. The 2015 TCM festival is coming up, and perhaps sharing the cost of a new transfer would benefit both TCM and WBHV as they could cross promote each other... If the film were featured at the TCM Festival, perhaps interviews done there with surviving cast members could be added to the subsequent disc release. As Mr. Feltenstein mentioned several years ago that he felt the market for this film was not as large as that for How The West Was Won, we sign this petition to indicate OUR interest. With the recent popularity of TV shows and movies based upon Grimm stories and other fairy tales, we feel it is time to re-evaluate the marketability of this title. WBHV's deluxe Blu Ray release of HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSON confirms that WB feels there is now a market for vintage movies related to fairy tales. We ask that Warner Home Video confer with Turner Classic Movies, and review all possible options for a new digital transfer and disc release of THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM, so that the film's fans, plus more who have gained interest from recent TV shows, may be able to buy a good copy of this film sooner rather than later... and we can live happily ever after. In addition, as none of us is getting any younger, we ask that Warner/TCM approach the few surviving cast members, (Barbara Eden, Claire Bloom, Yvette Mimieux, Russ Tamblyn, Bryan Russell, etc.) ASAP to record interviews and commentary for the eventual release, and to enhance current TCM showings.
Petition to Gary Marsh
Disney Television: Release a Gravity Falls Box Set !
For the last three and a half years, millions of fans have watched Disney's Gravity Falls, on Disney Channel and Disney XD. With the show now concluded, fans had hoped for a series / all-episodes-included box set, however: Disney apparently has expressed "zero intention" to make a series set. Show creator, Alex Hirsch, has noted that if he were in charge, the set would be out by now. However, since Hirsch is not the one in charge of said process, it is not up to him. Instead - it is a responsibility that lies with Disney Television Programming & other affiliates at the Walt Disney Company. This petition exists to try and convince Disney that: there is demand for a Gravity Falls box set, and that it would be advantageous of them, financially, to do so. They're likely aware [based on the show's ratings] that the profitability and interest factor is there, this will serve as the extension of that proof.
Petition to Ubisoft
Bring back the Prince of Persia franchise
Prince of Persia used to be one of the most popular and strong IPs at Ubisoft. Created in 1989 by Jordan Mechner, the first games reached many people. When Ubisoft released The Sands of Time trilogy, the Prince became more popular and many people loved that franchise. After an attempt to reboot the series in 2008 (which epilogue never was released on PC and it never got a sequel) and the release of The Forgotten Sands in 2010 by the same time the movie was released, the fans were not very happy about the quality of these games. Now, Ubisoft seems to have focused on other IPs like Assassin´s Creed or FarCry (specially the first one) leaving the Prince of Persia forgotten. Even though the fans have asked for the return of the Prince many times, all that Ubisoft says is "wait and see", but after waiting for more than 4 years, nothing new has been announced, only remakes of old games for smartphones and tablets, and rumors of games that were already cancelled. Not even the 10th anniversary of the release of The Sands of Time was mentioned by them. Prince of Persia is a classic in the videogames world, which 25th anniversary is getting closer and closer, and seing that other classic videogames are getting news now, the fans of the Prince of videogames want to ask for his return. No more portable remakes, no more fake rumors, no more cancelled cames. We want a good game for consoles and PC, a AAA game like the ones we used to play in the past. We don´t care if it is a reboot or a game related to the previous ones, but it has to be GOOD. So, if you are a fan of the Prince of Persia franchise and you want the Prince back, please sign this petition and share it with your friends, so that Ubisoft sees that the fans haven´t forgotten about this franchise. We start this petition from the Prince of Persia Fans community and we hope that Ubisoft will listen to us this way. Thank you!
