Reward for moving in the right direction...........

October is designated as Vegetarian Awareness Month. Given the recent media attention to former President Clinton's near vegan dieting, the timing for such an "awareness month" is fortuitous......(the previous link takes you to both an extensive discussion re diet and heart disease as well as a video of an interview with two physicians advocating plant based diets).

Anyway, I just wanted you to know that the North American Vegetarian Society is promoting vegetarianism by offering chances for a cash reward to those who give a vegetarian diet a "test drive". While I am not eligible, there may be some of you who visit this blog that haven't begun your journey toward "no-harm" in your eating is an opportunity to do so with the possibility of a cash-reward as a bonus.

The prizes are:

$1,000  for being vegetarian for a month (the whole 31 days of October)

$500  for being vegetarian for a week (7 consecutive days) in October

$250  for being vegetarian for a day (24 consecutive hours) in October

Go sign up if you are eligible, and good luck.........and the animals thank you.

That's not a bad idea because I think most humans are very tempted by money. Great idea to use it for a good reason instead of the bad things it's normally connected with. I'm not eligible either, but I hope that the winners stick with it after they win the money. Interesting idea anyway.

Thanks for commenting Krissa. Most anything that saves some misery and/or lives is desirable.
