How delighted was PETA when musical sensation Ricky Martin
announced that he's been enjoying vegetarian meals? So
much so that we've sponsored a rescued chicken in his honor at Kindred Spirits Sanctuary—just in time for The Great American Meatout today, a day when everyone is encouraged to
enjoy healthful and humane vegan foods.
Of course, we encourage folks to do that year-round, and
we're jubilant when people decide to make plant-based foods a regular part of
their lives—even if they haven't recently been voted Broadway's Sexiest Man Alive or sold 60
million albums worldwide.
You, too, can pay tribute to animals and help alleviate their
suffering by choosing healthful, humane vegan foods. Make every day a "meatout"
and order a free vegan
starter kit today!
