Reminder and Tweets For Wig It Up Wednesday Feb. 12th!   Leave a comment

shortyWe hope that everyone who tweets joins us tomorrow ~ Wednesday February 12th ~ for a special “Wig It Up” Wednesday. Tony’s Twitter friends @JeffMusk and @cafrindorrell have organized tomorrow’s event to raise awareness for Tony and captive tigers in the United States as well as Tony’s Shorty Awards nomination.

See our previous post for more information: https://freetonythetiger.wordpress.com/2014/02/07/february-12-wig-it-up-wednesday-to-raise-awareness-for-captive-tigers/ and Jeff’s post: http://jeffnmom.wordpress.com/2014/01/22/february-wigitup-schedule/

We thought it would a great idea to provide some tweets that you’re welcome to copy and paste for tomorrow. They include facts about Tony, videos about the captive tiger situation, Tony’s Shorty Award nomination, and how you can support a very important bill “The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act.” There are also graphics you can use to add to your tweets when you scroll past the tweets below – adding more to this post shortly. Please use the hashtags #WigItUp & #FreeTonyTiger – who knows, maybe we’ll trend!

Keeping Tony’s story and that of the captive tiger/big cat crisis is vital and we’re looking forward to a successful event tomorrow. Thanks again for everyone’s continued support of Tony.

February 12: “Wig It Up” Wednesday To Raise Awareness For Captive Tigers   Leave a comment

wig it collage

Tony’s friends on Twitter have designated a special Wig It Up Wednesday on February 12, 2014 to raise awareness for him, captive tigers in the U.S. and also to gain support for his Shorty Award nomination.

On Wig It Up Wednesday Twitter friends “enhance” their profile pictures with special “wigs” and use the hashtag #WigItUp when they tweet. It’s a fun way to bring attention to the serious plight of captive tigers in the United States like Tony.

Special Thanks to @JeffMusk and @cafrindorrell for organizing the event. You can read more on Jeff’s blog: http://jeffnmom.wordpress.com/2014/01/22/february-wigitup-schedule/ and if you’d like to participate on Twitter use the hashtag #WigItUp on Feb 12th when you tweet and/or ask @JeffMusk to “Wig You Up.”

We’ll be posting tweets you can copy and paste to use on Feb. 12th in our next post.

Learn more about Tony’s Shorty Awards Campaign at https://freetonythetiger.wordpress.com/2014/01/08/nominate-tony-for-a-shorty-award-2/ and nominate him for a Shorty Award.
