PETA Cutest Vegetarian Kid Contest: Vote Samara

The finalists for PETA’s annual Cutest Vegetarian Kid competition have been announced, and my daughter Samara has been chosen to be one of them! She got through the previous rounds due to her enthusiasm for vegetarianism and her dedication to living a veggie lifestyle. Now all that decides a winner is the number for votes she can get, so as a very proud mom I’m here to ask all you lovely people to support her!

Samara is the only vegetarian kid in her school, and has put up with a lot of teasing and name-calling because of it, but despite that she has stayed true to her beliefs. She doesn’t know any other vegetarian children, and I supported her entering the contest so that she was aware that she wasn’t the only one, and that it’s ok to think the way she does. She really is a beautiful girl, inside and out, and it would mean the world to her if she won.

Please take just a minute to follow the link and vote for her. We have until the end of the week to get as many votes as possible, and it would be amazing for her if she won. Thank you!
