Russell Simmons Coming To An Envelope Near You

Def Jam co-founder, Russell Simmons, will appear on one of 20 stamps dedicated to the most famous vegetarians of all time, in an effort to stamp out animal abuse. Simmons is the first hip-hop artist to receive his own stamp in partnership with PETA.

Other celebrities to be  featured are Woody Harrelson, Cesar Chevez, Gandhi, Bob Barker of “The Price is Right,” Gandhi, Paul McCartney and Ellen DeGeneres to name a few. During the campaign, the celebrities will offer tips on healthy living, in addition to doling out wisdom on the importance of being a vegetarian.

In 2008, while discussing his choice to be a vegan, he told CNN “The consumption of animals causes more harm to the environment than all the forms of transportation put together.” 

The limited edition stamps are on sale from December until January.
