I don’t know about you, but my arms still hurt from all the hugging during “Hug a Vegetarian” Day this past Friday! It’s no secret that this is my favorite holiday—you get to eat yummy vegan food, speak up for animals, and score a bunch of free hugs! What could be better? :)

With so many vegetarians and vegans all around the world (including the peta2 staff and Street Teamers at PETA’s Los Angeles office), I wasn’t the only one celebrating by getting my huggin’ on! There were so many people that we got more than 150,000 pledges for hugs this year! Now do you understand why my arms still hurt?! Check out the pics below! :)

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
