Looking for a fun and thoughtful Thanksgivukkah gift to get that vegetarian, vegan, or animal lover in your life? Look no further. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has launched its 2013 edition of U.S postage stamps featuring several well-loved celebrities.

The vegetarian postage stamp collection features 20 entertainment figures including Mayim Bialik, Sarah Silverman, Sara Gilbert, Pamela Anderson, Bob Barker, Joaquin Phoenix, Morrissey, Alan Cumming, and others.

Bialik is thrilled to participated in the PETA stamp collection which aims to raise awareness in their fight to protect the rights of animals.

“It’s so unbelievably weird and cool and it feels so weird to type this, but here goes: I’m on a postage stamp! PETA, the largest organization in the world supporting vegetarian and vegan choices, has asked me to join an extremely impressive group of fellow vegetarians and vegans to be on a sheet of postage stamps. I know, it’s crazy,” Bialik wrote on her Kveller blog.

“Even as a child, I felt very guilty about eating animals and never knew that there was something to do about it. And as I got older, it became clearer that there are things that I can do and choices I can make,” Bialik shared, explaining her choice to become a vegan.

Comedian Silverman explains that a traumatic experience as a young child led her to become a vegetarian.

“When I was 9 or 10 years old, my dad took me over to a neighboring farm to help get stuff for the meal. The farmer, Vic, told me to look at all the turkeys and pick one out. I saw a cute one with a silly walk and cried, ‘Him!’ Before my pointing finger had even dropped to my side, Vic had grabbed the turkey by the neck and slit [the animal's] throat. Blood and feathers went flying. I had sentenced that turkey to death! Up until then, I didn’t know where meat came from—and I’ve been a vegetarian ever since.”
