Thanksgiving Activism 2012

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, and is extra early this year!

We've got two events, and hope you'll join us - first up is the 3rd Annual Save-A-Turkey Trot, co-organized by OrganicAthlete Victoria and Friends of Animals on Saturday, September 29th at 11am:

It's a fun 5k walk/trot/run on the beautiful trails that run along the Dallas Rd waterfront. All are welcome, bring along your doggies, and your $2 entry helps support this event, and also enters you into the draw for tons of great prizes, all the details here:

The following day (Sunday, September 30th), FoA supporter Susan will be leading a leafleting session at noon outside Market on Yates downtown, giving out our Vegan Starter Guides, and encouraging people to go for a vegan Thanksgiving (and every meal!)

Please send a note if you'd like to join us, this will be a positive event encouraging people to consider turkeys, as well as adopting a vegan philosophy!

If you'd like to share info on this, here is a link to our leaflet on Thanksgiving, or feel free to use the image above. Also, our VeganMeans website has a great selection of recipes for the most amazing vegan feast you could imagine:

Have a great, turkey-friendly Thanksgiving!!
