Review From A Student

CCF supports an amazing cause to end the cruelty on animals. People don’t realise the heaviness of the world ‘cruelty’ in this industry. They bring forth (visually and with words) and that leaves an impact. I wish these videos were mandatory to be played at every store selling these products the way cigarette boxes come with a warning.
