As you know, millions of turkeys suffer terribly at this time of year. Happily, Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt-a-Turkey Project provides several ways you can celebrate turkeys and combat the cruelty. This year, Ellen DeGeneres is returning as spokesperson for Adopt-a-Turkey, encouraging Americans to save, not eat a turkey this year – here’s how you can get involved:
Sponsor a Turkey
Participate by sponsoring a turkey and telling all your friends about it on Facebook and Twitter. To see a gallery of Farm Sanctuary’s adoptable turkeys, go here. Depending on how much you’d like to give, you can sponsor a single turkey or an entire flock! You can also make a simple donation to Adopt-a-Turkey here.
Help With Media Outreach
If a donation isn’t possible, you can help with media outreach by writing letters to the editor of your favorite publication. Farm Sanctuary provides tips and tricks for how to effectively do this here. You can also reserve ad space in your local newspaper, then contact Farm Sanctuary. They’ll send your newspaper the correct size camera ready ad. A third way you can reach out to the meadia is by asking to have a PSA aired in your community. Read how to do that here.
Host a Potluck
Get all of your friends together for a delicious, cruelty-free feast and share heart-warming turkey rescue stories. Make it a fun affair that veg and veg-curious friends alike can enjoy. A pre-holiday potluck is also a great opportunity to test recipes for Thanksgiving- stay tuned for more on that soon!
How are you planning to help turkeys this Thanksgiving?
