Give and Let Live: Comedian Carol Leifer Supports Cruelty-Free Charities in Humane Seal PSA

Carol Leifer finds humor in everything—except not knowing where her money goes when she donates to a health charity. That is, until she discovered the Humane Charity Seal of Approval. In “Give and Let Live,” a new radio public service announcement, she explains how this PCRM program helps donors find charities that provide vital care and advance research without using animals.

Leifer, a stand-up comic and author who has written for such iconic television shows as Seinfeld, Saturday Night Live, and the Academy Awards, urges donors to “Give and Let Live” by supporting compassionate charities committed to providing vital services and care to patients or advancing research without the use of animals.

Answers to the most pressing human health problems—heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and others—lie in understanding human cells, human genes, and, in some cases, human habits.
