We invite you to join the national Gentle Thanksgiving campaign.
Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate life, not take it. Please take a
couple of hours this month to share some veggie treats, distribute
leaflets, or set up an information table (more ideas below). We ask you
to do something (anything) for the 40-50 million turkeys slaughtered for
this one day "celebration."
Participating is easy. You can:
- Share veggie treats with your friends & family
- Set up an information table
- Distribute leaflets
- Hold a vigil or fast
- Visit a local TV or radio station
- Visit a shelter
- Distribute food samples, or
- Show a video (at church, at a club, or on the street)
Visit our web site at: http://www.farmusa.org/thanksgiving or
call 888 FARM USA to get advice, to obtain useful materials, and to
register your event.
Registering your plans is important and enables you to:
1. Receive an Action Kit (inc. handout, petition & more)
2. Increase the national participation numbers and attract media
3. Inform activists in your community
FARM is working with United Poultry Concerns and Turtle Island (maker of
the fabulous Tofurky) to draw attention to the compassionate
alternatives to the cruel and unnecessary tradition of consuming
innocent, feeling turkeys.
Turtle Island will donate free Tofurky for select events so please
contact us today.
Thank you for your active compassion. I look forward to hearing from
