November is almost over and it’s suddenly very cold outside. I don’t do well in the cold. I end up jumping around and yelling angrily. I suppose I’m more of a spring kind of gal. Cold weather also means Christmas is just around the corner. It’s time to throw debt consciousness to the wind and fulfill our deepest desires, right? Well, not exactly. It’s really a time to be compassionate, with that in mind, here’s my wish list for this holiday season:
Support the Animal Defense League
Show some compassion by supporting an animal in need through adoption or donation. Shown above are Bailey the Dog and Liz the Cat. They would look wonderful under your Christmas Tree!
Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
This book comes highly recommended online and by my friends.
Getting a good book can be one of the best gifts.
The Vegan Stoner Snack Book
A fun illustrated recipe book from the geniuses behind one of my favorite blogs.
MATT & NAT Backpack
It’s out of my price range, but I would just love this new backpack!
THE GUERRA Deakin Fish
My favorite shoe in the Keep + Animal Collective collection.
All profits from this project will benefit the Socorro Island Conservation Fund.
That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals
I’d love to get this book to read to my little nephew.
When you’re shopping for friends and family this Christmas, seek out cruelty free options! I also recommend Lush Handmade Cosmetics, and gift cards to local vegan friendly restaurants like Green and Vegeria.
