Tomorrow, Farm Sanctuary will have their NYC Walk For Farm Animals. The organization holds walks in several cities around the U.S., including Atlanta, Boston, and Portland. Walkers for NYC have already raised more than $65,000 to help Farm Sanctuary promote their efforts on behalf of animals.
For all the years as a vegetarian, and even when I initially became vegan last year, I had no idea farm sanctuaries existed. The first two I visited were Catskill Animal Sanctuary and Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Check out my albums on Facebook for Woodstock and Catskill!
In August, I got the opportunity to visit Farm Sanctuary for the Country Hoedown. In Watkins Glen, Tweed and all the other animals carved out a little place in my heart.
While I won’t be walking in Central Park tomorrow because I will be en route to a half marathon, I couldn’t pass up the chance to spread the word. Veganism isn’t just about what’s on our plates; it’s about what’s off them as well. Sanctuaries help people make the connection.
My goal has almost been met thanks to some generous contributions from Jake Johnston of PlayWithMyFood, Evan O’Brien of the Vegan O’Brien Baking Company, and Gretchen Primack, co-writer of The Lucky Ones.
