This is a petition to send a strong message to those who choose to abuse Donkeys. This petition is focusing on Buckeye Donkey Ball http://www.donkeyball.com/ and all other companies involved in this insane abuse. Donkeys are being abused only for the satisfaction of filling the pockets of greedy companies. We the undersigned demand that these operations end this cruelty NOW! Secretary Duncan you have the power to end this abuse from happening in our school systems across the USA. We the undersigned hope that you will take action ASAP.

Donkey basketball fundraisers send kids the message that it's OK to abuse and humiliate those who are weaker than they are. Children who are exposed to animal abuse are taught the dangerous lesson that cruelty is acceptable. After an extensive study of the links between cruelty to animals and human abuse, experts Stephen R. Kellert and Alan R. Felthous concluded, "The evolution of a more gentle and benign relationship in human society might be enhanced by our promotion of a more positive and nurturing ethic between children and animals."Schools from coast to coast have stopped hosting cruel donkey basketball fundraisers because they want to help nurture kind kids, not bullies. The U.S. National Parent-Teacher Association Congress states, "Children trained to extend justice, kindness, and mercy to animals become more just, kind, and considerate in their [interactions] with each other."
