Mission: Spread ThanksVegan Energy—Post Notes to Save Turkeys

With Thanksgiving coming up fast, one animal is at mega risk: turkeys. 🦃 While humans kill turkeys for food year-round, fall and winter are especially scary times for these birds. But they don’t have to be. Help us get as many people as possible to ditch turkey flesh for vegan food this holiday season by posting notes around town.

Here’s Why Turkeys Are Awesome

Turkeys are truly amazing animals. They are the life of the party and love socializing, making friends, and napping and cuddling with their besties. 😩❤️ Besides being ridiculously cute, turkeys are smart af. They can tell which insects and snakes are dangerous, visualize a map of their territory, and recognize patterns.

See how much we have in common with turkeys? So imagine how devastated you’d be if workers kept you in crowded conditions away from your fam, denied you the chance to breathe fresh air, and slaughtered you by shackling you upside down and slitting your throat. 😱 This type of suffering is exactly what the meat industry puts turkeys through.
