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! :)

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
