ThanksVegan & Food For Kind Thought

>>  Sunday, December 1, 2013

What a fantastic meal and celebration we had at the 8th Annual ThanksVegan event coordinated by Florida Voices for Animals! Robert Shepherd was the keynote speaker and you can read his moving essays here.

It was a wonderful time with more delicious food than one could imagine. Best part was getting to be with friends who are dear but seldom seen. 
Tucker & me
The poster you see behind us is one distributed by United Poultry Concerns. Many took advantage of this backdrop for cool photo-ops. The truth couldn't be more clear! We know that turkeys are too neat to eat, and no one at ThanksVegan missed out a bit!

Another one of these posters held a place of prominence at the library display that I previously mentioned I would do in the month of November. Of course the major focus was all about the turkeys and the many reasons they are best left off our plates:







I was pleased with the display... It looked festive and colorful. The message was clear that we ought to be kind:

Available in the lobby were brochures also provided by United Poultry Concerns. If people didn't get the message on the way in... They certainly could learn more on the way out. 

I hope that all gentle folks had a wonderful holiday! Food for kind thought is always delicious - Isn't it? :)

Great work! Thank you, thank you and thank you...on behalf of all the animals.

It looks like a lovely time was had by all at ThanksVegan. Hooray! :-)

No need for any thanks veganelder - It was a joy to do! It felt liberating and comforting to actually do *something* against the annual ritual slayings. Letters to the newspapers was certainly a good idea too!

Yes - ThanksVegan was terrific. I only wish that my cyber-friends could be there in the mix. Now that would be the best time of all! <3

As always my Lovely wife has outdone herself on a Great Thanks Living Display at our local library...
