Support Great Causes & Enter the Mother Load of a Raffle

Signed paperbacks, posters, and eBooks by authors:

This is one of the biggest online book giveaways I've ever seen. Enter the raffle here. (No purchase necessary.)

My reasons for choosing Vegan Outreach can be found at my Lights On page.

Putting an end to factory farming and animal cruelty is very near and dear to my heart. I've read detailed undercover accounts and seen the footage of the abuse that takes place on factory farms which, tragically, account for 99 percent of the meat, dairy and egg markets in the United States.

"Ninety-nine percent of all land animals eaten or used to produce milk and eggs in the United States are factory farmed. So although there are important exceptions, to speak about eating animals today is to speak about factory farming."

Books like Meat Market by Erik Marcus, Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer, even Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin (hey, I like snark) have been highly influential, along with the documentary Earthlings narrated by Joaquin Phoenix... and my dog, Cosmo. :)

Oh yes, and I heart my vegan cookbook collection! Even my French husband converted. His choice!

Thank you to author Rachael Wade for putting this together.
