The Ginnifer Goodwin Adopt-A-Turkey campaign is set to launch for Thanksgiving 2009. Because 45 million turkeys are slaughtered each year for Thanksgiving alone, the national project—a collaboration between actress and vegan Ginnifer Goodwin and Farm Sanctuary—aims to end the slaughter by raising awareness and enouraging consumers to adopt a turkey instead of eating one.

According to Ecorazzi, the Ginnifer Goodwin Adopt-A-Turkey project is designed to "end the misery of commercially-raised turkeys by educating the public and offering a compassionate alternative for Thanksgiving."
