Save Animals

Get Ready for ‘Hug a Vegan’ Day!

Why is “Hug a Vegan” Day so awesome, you ask? It’s a whole holiday dedicated to hugging those who are making a HUGE difference for animals—VEGANSBeing vegan is awesome in SO many ways: You’re doing your body a favor by ditching a lot of unhealthy foods, you’re helping to save the planet, and, best of all, you’re saving the lives of more than 100 animals every single year simply by not eating them.

On September 25, stand up for these animals and show your vegan pride by spreading the love and pledging hugs!
