TIPS

Please do not include anything rude in your tweets. We want to be informational, not confrontational.

Hate tweets send a negative image and the message will be lost or not taken seriously.

Yes, we are thoroughly disgusted with these drugs. But this approach will not help the horses.

Do not flood your tweets with hash tags. You may use #horses #womenshealth #menopause.

VOLUNTEER

If you would like to be part of our Twitter campaign regarding Premarin ads on television and in magazines, please email horsefund@gmail.com.

If you see any of these ads, be sure to let us know.

EARLY RESULTS

Those of you who are keeping an eye out for Premarin ads and letting us know where and when you see them, you have done a marvelous job.

The result is that the Premarin television ads you alerted us to are being pulled from rotation. We notice on CBS they are replacing Premarin ads with ones for natural alternatives not using animals.

Good work!
