Just find it out today, thanks to my mom's friend.
Tomorrow is the Meatout aka the World Vegetarian Day. It is a day of public awareness to inspire everyone to give out meat for one day. This year's theme is "Change Your Diet - Change the World!"
Every year on the first day of the spring, thousands of caring people in all 50 states in the U.S. and two dozen other countries get active to host educational Meatout events. Activities include colorful festivals, lectures, public dinners, feed-ins, cooking demos, food samplings, leafleting, information tables and many more.
Meatout is the world's largest and oldest annual grassroots diet education campaign and this year is the 25th annual observance! Wow. All you have to do as a Meatout supporter is simply asking your friends, family and neighbors to pledge to "kick the meat habit (at least for one day) and explore a wholesome, compassionate diet of fruits, vegetables and whole grains."
I'm sure if you're a vegetarian like my mom, you'll find no difficulties to support the campaign. However if you're an omnivore like me (LOLz), trust me, it isn't as easy as it sounds. We can always try a new thing at once. Besides, there are many great benefits waiting for you if you're a vegetarian aside from saving the animals and the environment; it's for your own health. Think about all the bad cholesterol and heart diseases if you need a second thought. *wink*
