The "Make Mine Chocolate!" campaign was featured on NBC4 Midday today. Heather Dean had the opportunity to speak with NBC4 Anchor Anietra Hamper about the importance of educating the public about the responsibilities that come with having a rabbit, and that rabbits aren't necessarily good pets for children.
Anietra really focused on the fact that rabbits make fantastic pets, but they should not be an impulse purchase at Easter. Heather talked about the fact that rabbits have just as many needs as cats and dogs, and can live 10 years or longer. Heather also made sure to mention that viewers can log on to www.makeminechocolate.orgto decide whether a pet rabbit is right for them. The producers even aired a graphic with the information from our campaign flyer to emphasize things that should be considered before bringing a rabbit into one's home. Anietra was once a bunny parent herself so she certainly appreciated our dedication to helping spread the word that live rabbits do not make good Easter gifts for children. Make Mine Chocolate! Place a chocolate rabbit or a stuffed toy in the Easter basket this year.
We certainly appreciate NBC4's continued support of the "Make Mine Chocolate!" campaign. Their support allows us to spread the MMC message to viewers all over Central Ohio.
