Thanks for checking out my fundraising page! I'm raising money for an organization called Farm Sanctuary with a personal gastronomical challenge for 2010.
What I'm doing
I'm gradually transforming into a vegetarian for a year. For each dollar raised I'll get closer to giving up all meat products. Here are my benchmarks:
$150 - I'll give up lamb for 2010
$200 - Lamb and pork
$350 - Lamb, pork, and beef
$500 - Lamb, pork, beef and poultry and all other meat
About Farm Sanctuary
Farm Sanctuary is the nation's leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the "food animal" industry through research and investigations, legal and institutional reforms, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Farm Sanctuary shelters in Watkins Glen, New York, and Orland, Calif., provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming.
How you can help
Please support me by making a donation through this fundraising page. The more I raise before Jan 1, the longer and more meaningful my challenge will be. I will keep going until I hit my goal, but I'd hate to reach it in November 2010, you know?
Thank you for your support!
