Calling All Activists for a Gentle Thanksgiving

From Farm Campaigns - [email protected] 

We need activists to distribute Gentle Thanksgiving gift baskets to local talk show hosts. It's fun and it's a great opportunity to meet your media, and to reduce the number of animals abused and killed for America's dinner table. Background information and the procedure involved are noted below.

FARM, with the kind cooperation of Now and Zen, Turtle Island Foods, Farm Sanctuary, and other organizations, is continuing our annual tradition of distributing Gentle Thanksgiving gift baskets to selected media. Each basket contains a mock turkey with trimmings, a copy of the "Making of a Turkey" video, and vegan literature.

Here is the procedure (with more details upon registering):

1) Obtain the name, position, show, station, and contact information of the more influential talk show hosts, weather anchors, food editors, or other popular media characters in your area

2) Register with our Communications Director Laurelee Blanchard at [email protected], or 888-543-6325, providing the above information as well as your contact information and organization (if any)

3) Once you receive Laurelee's approval, ask the approved folks whether they would be interested in receiving a Gentle Thanksgiving gift basket containing a mock turkey dinner and information on meatless Thanksgiving

4) Report your findings to Laurelee, who will then arrange for shipping the 'turkeys', video tape, and literature, as well as detailed instructions

5) Once you receive the materials, arrange a date/time for each delivery, pick up the free 'turkeys' at a local health food store or coop, get baskets, and prepare the meals, according to the instructions provided.

6) Report the results to Laurelee, so she can include you in our national 'media blitz.'

Enjoy! And thank you for caring enough, AlexH.

Thank you for making World Farm Animals Day the best ever.
