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—VEGANS! Being 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.
EVERYONE can participate, whether you’re vegan yourself or you’ve got a friend, family member, or classmate who is. Here’s how to celebrate AND get free stuff:
1. Fill out the form below to pledge your hugs! You can pledge one hug or 100, but be sure to mark your calendar so that you remember to hug away on this special day.
2. Print out your FREE “Hug a Vegan” Day signs, then have your parents take a photo of you holding one. If you want, get your friends or siblings in the photo, too. Then send your photo, along with your mailing address, to [email protected] to receive a FREE goodie pack, which includes PETA Kids comic books.
