It's time to get your party on. We're two weeks away from US VegWeek. Sponsored by the animal-friendly folks at Compassion Over Killing, it begins on Earth Day, Monday, April 22 and offers a week of celebration, with meatless giveaways, screenings of vegan flicks, cooking demos, potlucks and specials at your favorite restaurants, all for a great cause.
Meatless choices weren't on franchises' menus -- or radar -- a few years ago. Every time you order a meatless meal in what was once a vegan-free zone, you become the change you want to see in the world and on the menu. So pull up a chair, vegan friends, there's a seat at the fast food table for you.
Bhumitra is running 13.1 miles to raise money on behalf of the 9 billion animals killed annually for food in this country. She's also doing it in memory of her sister and, she says, "to regain myself."
