MFA issues ‘Ask Me Why I’m Vegetarian’ t-shirt challenge

Change, no matter how massive in scope, starts with one person. That appears to be the idea behind MFA’s (Mercy For Animals) “Ask Me Why I’m Vegetarian” t-shirt challenge.

The initiative calls for vegetarians to start a healthy dialogue about their decision to give meat the boot with those who haven’t made the transition. Thereby encouraging others to make the change then possibly the new convert tells others and the whole thing becomes beautifully exponential.

All you need to spark this shift towards compassionate eating is one of MFA’s “Ask Me Why I’m Vegetarian” t-shirts, a packet of “25 Reasons to Try Vegetarian” brochures and the boldness to open the lines of communication regarding your lifestyle decision.

According to MFA each vegetarian saves 50 animals from a lifetime of misery, so by accepting the challenge you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
