Save a life this Thanksgiving

Good news, fellow veggies!

This Thanksgiving, you have the opportunity to make a huge difference and save a life (or more). Instead of putting a turkey on your table this holiday, you can adopt one! No, you won't have to worry about a large turkey running around your home; instead, through Adopt-A-Turkey Project, you can sponsor a turkey of your choice who's currently at Farm Sanctuary.

Farm Sanctuary has helped rescue turkeys since 1986 and currently works toward saving as many lives as possible, as well as educating the public and serving as an advocate all farm animals. When you have a moment, please visit their website and educate yourself (and spread the word to others) about the cruelty these poor animals are forced to suffer. After reading about the project, feel free to donate! A mere $30 helps sponsor one turkey, and Farm Sanctuary provides you with the option to sponsor more if you are able. The website even offers vegan recipes for gravy, sides, and main dishes for a turkey-friendly Thanksgiving.

Let's all have a cruelty-free Thanksgiving this year!


  1. Lindsey-I love doing the Adopt-a-Turkey program each Thanksgiving! It's our Thanksgiving tradition now. We have been doing it for about 5 years and recently we started adopting one for our niece too! It's great!

  2. That's awesome!!! I was talking to my fiance last night about how it would be great to have that as our new Thanksgiving tradition (eventhough he's not veg, he's still very supportive of me). So glad to "meet" someone else who's all for the idea, too! :)
