Are Your Really Going to Eat That? Win an iPad and PETA Prizes in a Vegetarian Giveaway
The holidays are coming—and that means most of us will be sitting down to eat with family members who have never given a second thought about digging into meat-laden holiday meals. Perhaps you have given serious thought to going meat-free, but find it hard to resist the family tradition of making an animal carcass the centerpiece on the dining room table.
So vegetarians and vegans often find themselves politely explaining—in some cases, to multiple people at the same table!—why they are not interested in eating animals, whether it's for personal health, the sake of the animals, or the environment.
And since a picture—or a video—is worth a thousand words, PETA and Living Green Magazine are teaming up to giveaway for a chance to win a free iPad, on which you could show your dining companions in full (and even graphic!) detail all of the many reasons to go "vegetan." (Click here for details and to enter.)
The winner could screen Earthlings, the movie that inspired Ellen DeGeneres to go vegan, or Alec Baldwin's seminal factory farming PETA exposé, "Meat Your Meat." Or, if you win second or third prize, you could pop open a DVD or lend them one of your new books—it's up to you!
The promotion is a collaborative effort between both organizations to spread the word about the true impact of eating meat, and the health benefits of eating vegetarian and vegan.
Enter to win between November 5-20 at http://livinggreenmag.com/peta-ipad-giveaway/. If you're lucky, the next time Uncle Jim says, "I bet you can't give me one good reason why we shouldn't eat turkey at Thanksgiving," you'll be able to reply, "I won't just tell you—I'll show you!"

PETA, the largest animal rights organization in the world, focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. The organization also works on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, and other “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals. PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.
