That’s a picture of the oil spill from space. FUCKING SCARY, RIGHT??
As we all sit around, feeling helpless and hating greedy consumerism and oil (which we should be doing because it’s all THE DEVIL), let’s unite and doooo SOMETHIIIING. Since we’re all psycho vegans (and vegetarians and people who appreciate how hot and smart vegans and vegetarians are), we probably have pets. Some of us have a ridiculous amount of pets too because we’re crazy animal people and will probably be featured one day on Hoarders from under a pile of newspapers being all, “I swear, I just need ‘em for the crossword puzzles!”.
But I digress. The point is, we all have animals and they’re all sheddy mo-fo’s and we need their hair and fur to combat the oil spill. Yes, their hair and fur. We’re gonna send it to Matters of Trust and then they’re gonna use it to collect oil because that’s what hair does best (my head just typed that because I totally need to shower). In fact, watch their awesome YouTube video to see how it works.
OKAY SO, we’re going to be collecting hair and fur to soak up oil at this Saturday’s SF Vegan Bakesale in front of Herbivore on Valencia. We’ll be collecting it all and shipping it in one big box (or more if you got like 50 cats) so yeah, come by! Buy a cupcake! Bring some hair! Save animals like there’s no tomorrow! BECAUSE AT THIS RATE, THERE MIGHT NOT BE. Jesus H!
[Thanks to Susie for the idea!]
Herbivore is selling this cute shirt, all proceeds going to help groups aiding in relief to Haiti. Buy one if you have a passion for fashion and doing good! See what I did there! Barely!
Anywho, $18 bucks for the shirt (includes shipping within the United States). Deal.
It’s Adopt-a-Turkey Time »
Why pardon a turkey when you can adopt one? It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means it’s time to plunk down your dollars for Farm Sanctuary’s annual Adopt-A-Turkey Project. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
Adopt-a-Turkey Project seeks to end the misery of commercially raised turkeys by offering a compassionate alternative for Thanksgiving. Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary has rescued more than 1,000 turkeys, placed hundreds into loving homes through our annual Turkey Express adoption event, educated millions of people about their plight, and provided resources for a cruelty-free holiday. For a one-time $25 donation, anyone can sponsor turkeys residing at Farm Sanctuary.
Besides, you were already going to pay for tree-planting to offset the pollution from your flight out to Wisconsin so you can sit in front of a dead bird with your in-laws, right? So why not “offset” their decomposing feast and buy turkey sponsorships for everyone at the table? (Okay don’t sponsor the living birds as an excuse to eat the dead bird guilt-free, but if you’re reading this blog, you probably aren’t eating dead birds anyway. Remember: adopting a live turkey isn’t going to bring dead turkeys back to life—OR WILL IT???)
Anyway, if that’s not reason enough, LOOK AT HOW CUTE OLIVE IS:
LOOK AT HER GRUMPY BEAK-EXPRESSION AND RUMPLED FEATHERS!
Or if Olive doesn’t charm you, pick another turkey to sponsor and they’ll send you an adoption certificate of your very own.
Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals! »
The Walk for Farm Animals is an amazing thing. Basically, people sign up to walk and then get sponsors and all the money goes to animals rescued from factory farms and to educating the public about said farms. Important stuff! The walks take place all over the U.S., and the San Francisco walk is happening this Saturday, Oct. 24 and we want to help fellow bay area bloggers/badass vegan sisters, The Sisters Vegan, raise some mickey fickey funds for the animals!
They’re currently at $105 in donations and they want to make it to $250. Let’s get them there or even PAST THAT! Every penny goes to Farm Sanctuary and right now, they realllllly need the money. Let’s be generous, it’s the HOLIDAYS (It’s true! The Walgreens candy aisle told me so!). Donate here today!
