Walk for Farm Animals 2011 to raise $1 million

FarmSanctuary.org
I just posted an article over on San Jose Fitness about the 2011 Walk for Farm Animals.  This is a great cause, an opportunity for those who want to stop animal abuse and help farm animals and who are concerned with the cruel and horrific practices of factory farming to take a stand in support of compassion for all! This year the fund raising goal for the 35 walks that take place across the U.S. and Canada is $1 million.

The Walks raise vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s life-saving work and bring together thousands of people to promote kindness towards animals. When you walk, you give hope to billions of farm animals who are suffering right now on factory farms. The Walk for Farm Animals is a positive way to speak out on behalf of animals who cannot speak for themselves and to make a real difference in their lives.

If you're unfamiliar with the group, a book featuring the loveable faces and captivating stories of some of the rescued animals who reside at the bi-coastal shelters of Farm Sanctuary (www.farmsanctuary.org) won the Gold Medal in the Animals/Pets category of the Independent Publishers Awards (referred to in the publishing industry as the “IPPY Awards”).
