THE 3RD ANNUAL TERRIFIC THANKSGIVING TURKEY PLEDGE!


Hello my loves!

First of, please enjoy the photo on the right of me snuggling with Russell the rescued turkey at Farm Sanctuary. Ain't he handsome? :-)



Well, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and with that, the hustle and bustle of finding just the right food to display on the table for everyone to munch on. Stuffing! Mashed Potatoes! Cranberry sauce out of a can! Hey, you can take the girl out of New Jersey, but you can't take the New Jersey out of the girl...



This Thanksgiving, I will be eating plenty of yummy vegan food with the hubby and my mama who will be in town next week, along with tons of veggie friends in LA, and I couldn't be happier. 

Okay, here goes: I am challenging you - YES YOU! - to 

Kiss Me, I'm Vegan's



3rd ANNUAL TERRIFIC THANKSGIVING 

TURKEY PLEDGE!!!

We've done this fun tradition for the past two years with fabulous success - nearly 100 pledges on the blog!

Here's how it goes:

In the comment section below, 

please make a firm commitment NOT 

to eat turkeys this Thanksgiving.  

You can say something as simple as "No turkey for me!" or as long as "I would never dream of consuming turkeys because their too cute to eat, pass the tofurky please!" 

I would love to see if we can get at least 100 pledges by Thanksgiving this year. And don't worry - you can be a vegan, vegetarian, or meat-eater-slowly-transitioning-to-kiss-worthy-vegan and still post a comment below. 

AND PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH JUST ABOUT ANY FRIEND YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON!

Here’s to a delicious, compassionate 
holiday season.

For vegan Thanksgiving recipe ideas, check out last year's holiday post, and if you haven't yet, give a Tofurky roast a whirl. I was skeptical at first, but oh my goodness are they amazing!

I feel so thankful this year for my wonderful family and friends.Hurricane Sandy took so much from so many and I am so grateful that we were spared. I certainly don't need to eat turkey to give thanks and I won't again this year. Happy Thanksgiving to all. Gail

Farm sanctuary has an adopt a turkey program. I adopted "Thyme." I won't be eating turkey :)
Another Thanksgiving without turkey for me! Thankful that my mom and step-father are also enjoying a vegan feast this year!
Eileen said…
I adopted "Skip" the turkey through Farm Sanctuary. No turkey for me at Thanksgiving!
Lindsay said…
I, Lindsay Wolf, your faithful vegan blogger, will not be indulging in a single animal product this year, especially not dining on beautiful, intelligent turkeys. They are much to precious to eat. Thank you to all who have and will be pledging your compassion this year! xoxo
Lizzie said…
I pledge to a turkey free and fully vegan thanksgiving, in fact I threw a vegan thanksgiving celebration with friends already!
Jill McCullough said…
I am looking forward to sharing another vegan Thanksgiving with my vegan husband and our 3 vegan kids! We pledge to be turkey-free! :)

I pledge not to eat any animal products this thanksgiving. Lentil loaf all the way!
No turkey for my husband or I. This will be our second vegan Thanksgiving. I can't believe I ever fussed about having to miss the traditional taste of meat on the holiday. Don't miss it at all and I LOVE all the wonderful veggie fixins. :) Last year we sponsored (is that the word?) a turkey at Farm Sanctuary and we'll do it again this year.
It was this time last year I was learning about veganism. Adam made a fantastic turkey, and I ate it with doubts swimming in the back of my mind. I am grateful for this path I am on now, and the love I spread by making compassionate choices. That's why I'm pledging with the wonderful Lindsay to not eat Turkey this year, or any other!

Our Thanksgiving celebration will have no animal products on the table! The REAL celebration will be for the Turkeys at Celebration for the Turkeys in Orland, Ca.

I pledge to make this my 4th Turkey free Thanksgiving. GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE!
Heather said…
No turkey for my family again this year! Only yummy vegan things. :-)
Sara said…
16 years turkey free, third vegan thanksgiving - this year me and my mom planned our vegan TG meal together
Whitney Wolf said…
No turkey for me, please! Having TG with my boyfriend's family this year, and introducing them to Tofurkey :)
Aimee Dars said…
1996 was the last time I had turkey for Thanksgiving. I am so happy that my holiday tradition now celebrates turkeys.
Molly G said…
I would never eat a turkey. Turkeys are friends, not food! Happy vegan thanksgiving!
Christina said…
So thankful to have wonderful vegan friends to celebrate this day with. Great food, great company and no cruelty. I pledge never to eat a turkey this year...nor any year for the rest of my life. :) Thanks Lindsay!
Megan W said…
Hosting my second annual vegetarian Friendsgiving dinner this year! No one at my apartment will be eating turkey.
Trista said…
I, Trista, pledge to not buy, cook or eat a turkey for Thanksgiving...Or any day other day of the year!
Kate Wilson said…
I Pledge NO TURKEY for Me!
Ashley Platz said…
I PLEDGE I WILL CONSUME NO TURKEY ...ever. :)
Xanna Bella said…
You couldn't pay me to eat a turkey (or any other meat). But I think some meat eaters would try to pay me to. WHY?
Ashley Rae said…
This will be my third Turkey free Thanksgiving. <3
This is my second year animal free. I'll be going to CT for the holiday, and handing out vegan outreach to my non-vegan family. My goal is for them to see turkeys the way I do-as beautiful, sentient beings.
Molly Copsey said…
For the 6th year in a row I pledge no turkey! I could not be happier or more satisfied. Once you give up eating dead animals you will lose the taste for it and discover the variety, abundance, goodness and deliciousness of plant food!
TerriJFreedman said…
I'm proud to say this will be my, gosh, seventh year without turkey on Thanksgiving (a feat I didn't think I could do before, esp. without feeling deprived), and this will be my fourth vegan Thanksgiving!
Ellen said…
No animal products of any sort will touch these lips. I promise.

No turkey for me!
LInda said…
My husband and I last ate a turkey in 1976 when we were 19 and 20 years old. Our son has never eaten any animal in his life. We love our vegan lives so you can be sure we will make this pledge next year and for the rest of our lives. Namaste to all.
Jewel said…
Although my fam is still meat-eating, they are supportive of my new healthy lifestyle. No turkey for me and no reproving looks, either'
Marcos said…
I last ate a turkey one year before the March for the Animals in Washington, DC. That was 24 years ago and I have not eaten turkey since. This year one more turkey will be saved because of a smart choice I made twenty-four years ago. That's 24 turkeys that have been saved by my family. Woo hoo!
Lynn L. said…
I pledge to to enjoy my holiday eating WITH my animal friends, NOT on them!

I'll be hugging our turkeys this Thursday, never eating one.
Johna said…
I pledge, that I won't be eating a turkey this Thanksgiving or any other time in the future. All my foods revolve compassionately around plants. No animal products for me! :-)
Unknown said…
I will not eat turkey this Thanksgiving or EVER. We always adopt a turkey from Farm Sanctuary for Thanksgiving the lovely Victoria plus we sponsor a turkey through out the year out handsome Harley <#
Unknown said…
I will not eat a turkey on Thanksgiving or EVER again!

Proudly my whole Cuban-American family is eating NO Turkey while we are being very creative in cooking some YUMmy Vegan dishes.

I will NOT be eating a turkey this Thanksgiving!! - or any other dead animal flesh and by-products. Sending my love and greatest sympathy to all the turkeys being eaten this Thanksgiving. My love is with you. http://lucieboshierlove.com/

There will be a cruelty-free Thanksgiving in my home. Vegan for life...in every sense of the word.

I pardon turkeys EVER day!

I pledge today and for always that my family and I will have a turkeyless ThanksLiving.
Eva said…
I second Jess's pledge - to never eat turkey at Thanksgiving or any other day! I adopted the adorable turkey Payton from Farm Sanctuary this year: tinyurl.com/b6drfpc
The only turkey I'll be eating is made of tofu :)
Liz said…
Vegan on Thanksgiving and every other day! No turkey on this plate. :)
Kristi 6 said…
I am in Canada, but we had a animal free Thanksgiving, and every other day also!! My whole family, husband, kids and now my in laws are vegan!
This is my first official plant-based Thanksgiving that I have prepared! Last year was my first offical "vegan" Thanksgiving, but I was new to this lifestyle, so I brought a can of veggie soup to my mom's house. This year, I have prepared a FEAST, and I excited! I pledge for the rest of my life to never consume another animal. That is a promise. I hope everyone has a Happy, Healthy Thanksgiving!
Christina Gregory said…
I pledge to always have cruelty-free Thanksgiving for the rest of my life. I am so happy to be celebrating my 3rd vegan Thanksgiving and was finally able to adopt a turkey, "Gable," from Farm Sanctuary. I hope everyone has a beautiful day with their family, friends and animal companions.
Lisa Cornellier said…
Animals....friends not food. This is my first year as a vegan. I love how my health has improved and that I am more aware and compassionate as a result of becoming a vegan. I am thankful to all of you who have supported me along the way. xo Continued health and blessings to you friends.
Valerie J said…
My first turkey free thanksgiving!!! So happy!!!
Paul Garlin said…
Definitely enjoyed my Turkey Free Thanksgiving with Vegan Pizza instead of turkey.
Loveveg said…
I just celebrated my fourth year being meat free on November 20th and the next day had a veg feast with friends that we lovingly call "Veggiegiving". The only turkeys on our table were the candle holders! :)
Giselle said…
I ate a yummy vegan Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, and I hosted a potluck dinner with 3 vegan friends on Canadian Thanksgiving in October too! I love not contributing to the meat/dairy/egg industry on Thanksgiving, or any other day of the year! :)
