Shortly after I adopted "Daphne" last Tuesday in honor of our children, I got this terrific email from The Farm Sanctuary. For every turkey adopted until November 25th, there is a benevolent sponsor who will match each adoption. For $30, you can save two turkeys. Here is the link, http://www.adoptaturkey.org/
This The Red White and Food post is a tribute to the power of one person, Ady Gil, stepping up to the plate, literally, to create a ripple effect of compassion. Here is the email I got from The Farm Sanctuary...
No sooner had we e-mailed you on Monday than Farm Sanctuary received some exciting news! We were contacted by Ady Gil, a generous supporter of Farm Sanctuary and our Adopt-A-Turkey Project.
Ady is very concerned about the suffering of turkeys this holiday season and wants to join with Farm Sanctuary supporters in saving as many of these birds as we possibly can. So he has offered to sponsor an additional turkey for every one adopted by friends like you by November 25, Thanksgiving Day! Each of your sponsorships will be matched with another adoption. You’ll receive a special adoption certificate in your name with a color photo of and fun facts about your adopted turkey. Best of all, you’ll get the warm holiday feeling that comes with knowing that you’re supporting the care of the rescued turkeys and other animals at Farm Sanctuary, and helping us advocate for farm animals everywhere.
Thank you, Ady.
