‘Win It’ Wednesday: PETA’s 2011 Calendar

Written by PETA | November 17, 2010

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.

The three people who most make us want to pop our champagne corks early will each win a calendar. The contest ends December 1, and the winners will be chosen on December 3. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law. Good luck!

    I am totally vegan…… 17 years!

    Beautiful picture. Heartbreaking to see these sweet, lovely creatures being so abused and hurt. I would dare to say it is not enough for each one of us to personally change our own diets and fashions — it is IMPERATIVE that we reach out to others, as many as we can, continuously, until this hurt to innocent individuals stops.

  • Sarah says:

    Starting next month, I will be volunteering at the Animal Humane helping cats that need loving homes.

    How can we enact laws against fur farms ? Why do we buy anything from China ? I say ban the buying of goods from China!!!

  • Erin says:

    I’ve been vegan for a few years now and have recently decided to forgo a career in finance to go back to school in January to study to be a veterinary technician. My long term goal is to run an animal sanctuary.

  • AAG says:

    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!

    I am currently 5.5 months pregnant so my 2011 resolution is to raise a happy, healthy, compassionate, vegetarian baby boy!

  • Alice says:

    After a year and a half of being a vegetarian I decided last week that I was going to go vegan. That was that. Not only have I not bought or consumed an animal product since, but I have already noticed a drastic change in how I feel about myself. When I say this I am referring to the wonderful feeling of following your heart. I feel like my actions finally match up to what my morals and sense of humanity dictate to me. By not eating animal products I am not contributing to the pain and suffering of a large amount of animals each year. I am being kind to my environment. I am keeping myself healthy for me and for my family, and I am expressing kindness to the future generations of people that will inhabit this planet. To me, this is liberating. I couldn’t be more thankful to be vegan. It’s also nice to know that with my words of support and utmost joy for this lifestyle I am encouraging more people to make this beautiful choice.

    My new year’s resolution is to protest outside either the McDonalds or KFC down the street from my house, at least once a week!! Now give me my calendar!

  • Rob says:

    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.

  • Karli says:

    I’m already a lacto-ovo-vegetarian, so next year, I’m going to cut out eggs. I’ll probably use Mahatma Gandhi’s diet as a guide. Also, I’ll eliminate all non-vegan, animal-tested products. I’m also gonna start a really small potted veggie garden (still at college, not a lot of room). Hopefully I can get a hold of some heirloom seeds for it.

    I am going to hold monthly bake sales and donate the money to a different animal charity each month. (There are so many to choose from. Why choose?) I would like to incorporate leafletting into the bake sale to help educate the public about animal issues.
