BENEFITING: WOODSTOCK FARM ANIMAL SANCTUARY INC

EVENT DATE: Feb 20, 2012

THE STORY:

February 20, 2012 marks 730 days of living a vegan lifestyle. Help me raise $730 for the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary!

Years ago I became a vegetarian after a work trip to Kenya. I attended a ceremony for work and was introduced to a goat whose sad fate was to then be slaughtered and boiled as part of an auspicious ceremony. I assumed to refuse to eat the goat would be a sign of disrespect. Essentially I met a goat, shook his hand and then ate him.

Years later, and one year after going vegan, II read about a goat named Clover at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. She was saved from slaughter and she will live the rest of her days as a free, happy goat at the WFAS (I now sponsor her).

It all came full circle. I went vegetarian because of a goat. I started eating plant-based for diet. I remaine veganbecause of another goat.
