I purchased the 2015 farmsanctuary calendars and am giving them to my family for Christmas. No one in my family is vegan so I feel like I have to be the example for them to see and listen to me and learn why I made this decision in my life about 3 years ago. At first they just assumed I had lost my mind or was on another stupid fad diet. After years now they seem to accept that for me being vegan is a life choice. This calendar is a way for me to get small doses of animal rescue and being vegan into them monthly. I love these calendars. When I first receive them I read them from front to back cover. I have one hanging in my kitchen so as I change each month I re-read that month. It is a refresher about that particular rescued animal. This calendar is beautiful. The pictures are beautiful. I love that the story on the page is the story about the rescue of the animal or animals pictured on that page. And it tells you how to help.
