Vegetarians get a lot of slack. I know; I was one for years. People get defensive asking about your lifestyle, as if it is a personal affront to their own! They’ll demand to know why you don’t eat meat, claim they could never do it themselves, flaunt their meat eating in front of you, and otherwise do weird things. Profess to love purple while they love pink, fine; declare yourself a vegetarian and all hell breaks loose.
But we all know that being a vegetarian can be a very healthy way to live, as well as a way to save lives. There are lots of other ways to save animal lives as well, such as through turkey adoption during Thanksgiving. Chances are, if you are a vegetarian, you already have tofurky or other options on Thanksgiving Day rather than turkey.
Did you know that you can also save other turkeys from being eaten by sponsoring them through various animal welfare organizations, such as Farm Sanctuary? If interested, you can click here to “adopt” a turkey and save him or her from certain holiday death. It costs $30 to adopt one turkey and $210 to save an entire flock. It sounds like a lot, but with this much money, you could save a turkey for the price of about six lattes from a coffee shop.
