We all know that Ellen DeGeneres is a devoted vegan, so she is lending her support to a cause close to her heart. The talk show host will serve as the 2010 spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt-A-Turkey Project, which educates the public and offers a compassionate alternative for Thanksgiving.
“Save a life this Thanksgiving, and join me in starting a new tradition by adopting a turkey instead of eating one through Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt-A-Turkey Project."
According to Farm Sanctuary, between 250 to 300 million turkeys are raised for slaughter every year and 46 million alone for Thanksgiving. Not to mention, turkeys are excluded from the Humane Slaughter Act, which means their deaths are far from humane.
