As we’ve mentioned here before, every year for Thanksgiving we donate to Farm Sanctuary to sponsor one of the turkeys that are living out a peaceful, natural existence at one of their sanctuaries.
Here at Geeks Of Doom headquarters we’ll be enjoying our Tofurky today to celebrate the holiday, but even if you’re not vegetarian, you can still show compassion too by “Adopting” a turkey this Thanksgiving.
Check out the video here below, which is presented by Spokesturkeys Reggie and Jake from the animated movie Free Birds. In it, you can see all the beautiful turkeys up for sponsorship.
Also below is a video report about Farm Sanctuary’s “Celebration Of The Turkeys” annual event, where the turkey residents are the guests of honors, where they get to eat all of their favorite foods!
Visit Farm Sanctuary for more details about their sponsorship program for turkeys, as well as other animals — all of whom will never end up on someone’s plate. Free Birds, which stars the voices of Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson as Reggie and Jake, two turkeys that travel back in time to prevent their own kind from becoming a savory Thanksgiving tradition, is out in theaters now.
Remember – Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful and grateful, it’s not about what you eat. I’m thankful for places like Farm Sanctuary that offer solace and care to rescued animals. I’m thankful there’s people out there who support charities that care for others, whether the care is for humans or animals.
I’m also thankful for the selfless members of the Doom Crew, who donate their time and effort to making Geeks Of Doom a fun, informative site, one in which Dave3 and I are proud to run.
And most of all, thank you dear readers for all your support and encouragement and for making everything we do here even that much more exciting and worthwhile.
