Prop 37 Countdown: What do Danny DeVito, Bill Maher, Dave Matthews and Jillian Michaels have in common?

They all support California Prop 37, and they made a video about it. Click below to watch it now.

If you’ve been following this blog, you already know that GE ingredients are already in the majority of food sold in grocery stores across the country and, because there are no labels required, we have no idea when we’re eating them. Nutrition labeling tells us the amount of calories, fat and sugar we’re consuming, shouldn’t we also know if we’re eating GE food?

It’s a simple idea, but unfortunately giant agribusiness companies like Monsanto are afraid that if people had the choice, they might decide to avoid GE foods, hurting their corporate profits. Which is why they are spending millions of dollars to air ads full of scare tactics and misinformation across California. We don’t have that kind of money, but we do have people power on our side. And, with the release of this celebrity-studded video, we now have star power on our side too.

Ten popular celebrities lent their voice and support for this video, but now they need your help. Even with their celebrity status, they are just a handful of people. But, with your help, we can spread their simple message of support for Prop 37 all across California. Help spread the word about Prop 37 by sending a link to this video to your friends today!

    How is the fundraising going to turn the video into a TV ad, how can we help spread it on TV!

    Awesome video!! Thanks so much to all who participated in making this video. I want to share this with video everyone I know. Do they have a more general audience version (with out the curse word)? (Thanks Danny for sharing it like you see it, I have always enjoyed your movies and shows.) I think most people will be receptive to the message, but some folks might be more receptive to a more general audience version. Thanks!!
