From Northwest VEG: Serving up some compassion with our gift-giving has certainly never been easier! Consider keeping your money local by supporting some of the many businesses that give back to our vegan community: restaurant and class gift certificates, stocking stuffers and books from FoodFight! and Herbivore, kitchen goodies from Mirador, or get creative throughout our list of local veg supporters at nwveg.org/businesses
We can also do double duty by supporting non-profits, both by giving gift memberships and buying items from their catalogs and websites. Farm Sanctuary, PCRM and PETA come to mind, or contact Jill@nwveg.org for information on a $35 Northwest VEG membership which comes with a subscription to VegNews Magazine!
From Megan Ujakovich-Gometzan, Contributing Writer: The holidays are a great time to reflect on what we value most in life. Vegan gift giving is not only a way to make your loved ones happy, but also a way to do your part to lessen the immense amount of animal suffering that happens every holiday season (and beyond).
