2011 is fast approaching, and we all know what that means: a list of New Year's resolutions and a new calendar. While pages of shirtless beefcakes have a certain appeal to some, we can all agree that PETA's annual calendar—full of beautiful portraits of rescued animals and important animal-related anniversaries and victories—is inspiring, beautiful, and suitable for both the kitchen and the office. It's also the prize for the three winners of this week's "Win It" Wednesday contest.
Want one? Well, then, wow us with your New Year's resolution to help animals. Maybe you're going scrape cheese off your plate for good by going vegan. Maybe you're going to start blogging about animal rights issues in your neighborhood. Perhaps you plan to follow the lead of lovely and determined Claudine Erlandson and start protesting outside your local KFC every week. The possibilities are endless, so we look forward to learning not just the "how's" of your life-changing resolution but the "why's" too.

I am a vegan teacher. I am going to invest in books appropriate for the high school level for my students. I will be giving them as prizes to the kids that got the best grades ending the term in January and to those that made the greatest improvement since September. Three books for each of my 5 classes (that's 15 books). I have an idea of the titles. Last year I gave three books and a veg t-shirt. I am upping up the ante. The kids love prizes, I love good grades and the animals get their stories told to young people.Everyone wins!
For those that are still eating cheese and want to cut it out.. I know it was already said, but I wanted to say it again. Try Daiya cheese. It is really good. It melts and tastes great. I've made broccoli cheese soup, grilled cheese, pizza and use it regularly on sandwiches and such. There is Mozzarella and Cheddar.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
