Peta2 Honor Late Hawthorne Heights Guitarist

(PR) To honor Hawthorne Heights guitarist Casey Calvert, who died unexpectedly last Friday, peta2 has posted a memorial page on its Web site, peta2.com. On the site, fans can view a video tribute to Calvert, which includes previously unreleased footage from his last interview with peta2. Calvert was an enthusiastic member of peta2's Street Team-an international network of young activists-and peta2 is calling on his fellow Street Teamers around the world to make Saturday, December 8, an international day of action in Calvert's memory.

Described by friends as "kind," "sweet," and "the nicest guy you'd ever meet," Calvert was a passionate defender of animal rights and loyal peta2 supporter. He joined peta2's Street Team years agoŚlong before Hawthorne Heights had reached critical acclaim, and he continued his activism even during his hectic touring schedule.

Calvert and his wife were proud guardians of rescued dogs and cats and staunch supporters of adopting homeless animals from animal shelters and rescue groups. On peta2's site, fans are urged to take the "veg pledge," and peta2 is also urging those who wish to honor Calvert's memory to volunteer at their local animal shelters on December 8. "Casey was always coming up with new ideas for helping animals and was eager to do whatever he could to help," says Dan Shannon, assistant director of youth campaigns. "He educated thousands of young people about cruelty to animals and inspired them to get active. He will truly be missed." - View Casey Calvert's memorial page
