In 2011, Lil Family Blog celebrated Veguary (visit www.veguary.org ) with a month of blog posts and guest blogs on vegetarianism. With February 2012 approaching, i'm announcing another month of celebrating vegetarianism, in all it's varying forms.
Please read last year's posts:

What is Veguary? It is a mission started by students in 2009, to get people to eat no or less meat in the month of February. It's a month of vegetarian awareness and education. And for me, it's a reminder to celebrate my choices, further educate myself, and reach out to others.
This year, again, i ask for your Veguary pledges. Visit http://www.veguary.org/ and leave your pledge. You can pledge to be a vegetarian, pescatarian, or a flexitarian (meaning you'll reduce your meat intake). To encourage you to pledge, i am going to Match Pledges. Since i'm already a mostly-vegetarian, i have pledged to be a 100% vegetarian in February (eliminating things like gelatin and chicken broth that may have missed my radar normally). But for everyone of my Lil Family Blog readers that pledges Veguary, i will also pledge to one day of veganism in the month of February (meaning i'll consume no animal products, including dairy and eggs).
Matching Your Pledges!
Here are the rules: go to Veguary.org and leave your pledge there. Then leave a comment here and tell me you've done it! If you'd like to include your exact pledge and why, i'd love to read about your choice. Then i'll match your pledge with one day of veganism. I'll match up to 29 pledges, for one complete month of veganism. Any vegetarian or pescatarian pledges count. A flexitarian pledge must include a plan: such as "Meatless Mondays" or a pledge to give up meat for lunch or dinner every day for Veguary, etc.
I look forward to seeing & matching your pledges.
Also - anyone who would like to guest blog in Lil Family Blog for Veguary 2012, please contact me! I'd love to post your stories about vegetarianism... or why you refuse vegetarianism!
Please check back in February for my blog posts about Veguary.
Leave pledges here. Please and thank you!
