Every September and October Farm Sanctuary (a non-profit that works to end cruelty towards farm animals, and promotes compassionate living) holds a Walk for Farm Animals organized by volunteers in communities across the U.S. and Canada. The walk is intended to raise awareness of the plight of industrial farmed animals while raising funds for the sanctuary.
This year Karmavore is one of the walk's sponsors. If you would like to make a pledge, you can visit our donation page. And if you make a pledge of $25 or more, you will receive a coupon code (valid until October 31st) to use at our online or retail shop.
Want to join a walk in your community? In Canada there are walks organized in Vancouver, Calgary, St. Catherines, Toronto, Kingston, and Halifax. You can register for one of these walks by visiting Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Animals 2010 locations page or find a walk nearest you. If there isn't one already organized in your community, you can start your own walk and register it with Farm Sanctuary.
Also, when you register for the walk three weeks prior to the event, you will receive a "compassion for all" t-shirt. This year's t-shirt is designed by Vaute Couture. You can see the t-shirt image here.
Thanks for your support!
