If you’re looking for a compassionate tradition to add to your Thanksgiving celebration, consider “adopting” a turkey from Farm Sanctuary! You won’t actually bring the turkey home, but your sponsorship will ensure that a Farm Sanctuary turkey (and its fellow sanctuary buddies) continues to receive all the food, water, shelter, and TLC it deserves. This is a great activity to include the children in your life, and Reggie and Jake from “Free Birds,” the new film about saving turkeys from the Thanksgiving table, agree — they are the 2013 spokespersons for this year’s campaign!

As you plan your Thanksgiving, include some activities that really embrace the spirit of compassion and giving. Get the whole family involved with picking which turkey to sponsor this year, learn some cool facts about our feathered friends, and plan some dishes that will leave turkeys off the table this year. Reggie and Jake (and Martha, Minerva, Clove, Tibbott, Tom, Tulip, and Turpentine) thank you!

Meet the whole gang and learn more about Farm Sanctuary’s amazing rescue work on their website.
