Friday's Vegan Accessory: Adopt A Turkey For Thanksgiving

Every year Farm Sanctuary, my favorite sanctuary, runs its Adopt-A-Turkey Project, which "seeks to end the misery of commercially-raised turkeys by offering a compassionate alternative for Thanksgiving." For $25, you can sponsor a turkey residing at either of Farm Sanctuary's locations (CA and NY). The money goes towards feeding the turkeys and otherwise running the sanctuaries, as well as Farm Sanctuary's annual "Celebration for the Turkeys." My co-workers and I sponsored a turkey last year and the adoption certificate we received still hangs in the break-room. This year, my roommates and I are planning to sponsor Bubbles, who resides at the New York Shelter and whose motto is "friends don't let friends eat turkey at Thanksgiving!" Perfect for my roommates and me.

See all the sponsor-able turkeys here. If you are feeling really generous, sponsor the entire flock for $150. Or make a compassionate Thanksgiving donation to all of Farm Sanctuary's animals here.

I love your blog, and wish someone would pay you to do this full time! Since that apparently isn't happening yet, the next best thing might be to create a Facebook page, where like-minded souls can all pitch in to share recommendatios. What do you say?
