Washington – After Ivanka Trump tweeted that the “turkey pardon” ceremony prompted her children Joseph and Arabella to insist on a vegetarian Thanksgiving, PETA put together a vegan care package that’s now on its way to the family’s Washington, D.C., home. It includes turkey squeezies, a coupon for a free Tofurky roast, and copies of PETA’s vegan starter kits as well as fun PETA Kids stickers, comics, and holiday recipes for the whole family to enjoy.

“Children have natural empathy for animals, and by refusing to eat turkey on Thanksgiving, Ivanka Trump’s little ones have shown that they’re no exception,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s animal-friendly goodies will hopefully encourage them to stay sweet to turkeys, cows, pigs, and all other living, feeling beings.”

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.” For more information, please visit PETA.org.
