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! :)

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!

    I'm crazy weirdo who seems sweet but that can flip like a switch if you get on my bad side.
