‘Hugshot’ Wanted: Take Part in PETA India’s ‘Hug a Vegan’ Day Mission

Posted on by PETA

Calling all vegans!

The Beatles first sang “All You Need Is Love” back in 1967, but the sentiment still rings true today. Help spread love throughout India and celebrate those who don’t eat animals or products stolen from their bodies by taking part in PETA India’s “Hug a Vegan” Day mission. After all, vegans make compassionate choices that spare animals suffering, reduce environmental destruction, and improve human health.

  • “Hug a Vegan” Day (27 September) is coming! Here’s what you need to do to take part in the mission:
    • Fill up the form below and submit it to us by 20 September.
    • Once you receive PETA India’s free “Hug a Vegan” Day Pack, organise a hugfest for your loved ones to have animal-friendly fun and to tell others why eating animals or eggs or drinking animal milk is bad news for everyone.
    • Take hugshots – photos of people hugging – with PETA India’s “Hug a Vegan” Day sign and enjoy sharing PETA India’s pro-vegan leaflets, stickers, and posters with your party or take a selfie of hugging a non-vegan friend while holding the “Hug a Vegan” sign and send it to us.
    • Go wild and show your guests just how delicious vegan foods are with your favourite vegan party food.

Everyone has a good reason to hug vegans: they spare animals suffering. As seen in PETA’s exposé “Glass Walls“, in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries, chickens’ throats are cut while they’re still conscious, fish suffocate or are cut open while they’re still alive, pigs are often stabbed in the heart as they scream in pain, and calves are torn away from their mothers within hours of birth. At the slaughterhouse, animals are often killed in full view of one another and dismembered while they’re still conscious.


Eating animals also wreaks havoc on human health. The consumption of meat, eggs, and dairy foods has been conclusively linked to a higher risk of suffering from cancer, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and obesity. In addition, an urgent United Nations report concluded that a global shift towards vegan eating is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change.

Be sure to send us your hugshots from your “Hug a Vegan” Day festivities by 27 September for a chance to be featured on PETA India’s website or Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages.

The race to embrace is on!
