On our last visit to Ithaca, I happened to see a flier for a charity walk for farm animals, sponsored by Farm Sanctuary. Click this link to see their website. It looked like such a fun way to donate to the cause of the farm animals rescued around the country, some of whom I was lucky enough to meet. Today, I went online to register, and it's really easy. For only $10, you can walk and you get a t-shirt. You can, however, take it further by creating a donation page that you can email to friends and family so that they can contribute to your effort as well.
What is even better is that there are walks happening all over the country and Canada! Click here to see a list of cities with this event. These walks are happening at various dates in the next days and weeks. You can register by phone or online. Grab a buddy or a team and walk for animals! If you're walking in Ithaca, NY, I will see you there!
By the way, Daiku and I have decided to adopt a turkey. When we saw the turkeys at Farm Sanctuary, they had been rescued from awful conditions, but they had such a dignity and you could see a will to live in their eyes. Ok, I'm getting teary-eyed. But stay tuned for developments on this front, which we will be sure to blog about!
