Lettuce Ladies and Broccoli Boys
Now is your chance to show your love for your favorite veg guys and gals. In PETA’s fifth annual “World’s Sexiest Vegetarians” poll, it’s up to all of you who’s the hottest, from Phantom Planet’s Alexander Greenwald or Good Charlotte’s Benji or Joel Madden, to Avril Lavigne and Johanna Fateman of Le Tigre. Previous winners include Andre 3000, Tobey Maguire, Josh Hartnett, Alicia Silverstone, Lauren Bush, Natalie Portman, and Shania Twain. It’s no easy task with so many beautiful people on this year’s list, but narrow it down to the best of the best and cast your vote today!
Father’s Day is Coming Up
Enough with the procrastination already … take a look at the peta2 Father’s Day mission right now. We want you to write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper explaining why you have the worldâ€™s most compassionate dad. It’s a really simple way to show your dad that you appreciate him and help animals at the same time. My father recently went vegan after being diagnosed with cancer, so I’ll be taking part in this mission with all of you.
Pulin along with peta2 summer staffers Kat, Jolinda, and Rob headed out to Detroit last weekend for a huge electronic music festival called Fuse In. Along with 5 local activists, they got thousands of people to sign up for the peta2 e-news, distributed tens of thousands of stickers, gave lots of free hugs, and showed Meet Your Meat to lots of receptive folks.
Our staffers were especially excited to see our favorite local Norfolk DJ, Brian Zentz. Tons of vegans and vegetarians were surely made based on the great feedback from people who said they went veg after stopping by our tent at the event last year.
That’s all for this week. See you all on Monday!
