Because EVERY Turkey is an Individual!
THE NATIONAL TURKEY Federation estimates Americans eat approximately 46 million turkeys on a single Thanksgiving holiday.* Imagine 46 million animals raised, killed, and eaten for one single holiday! Well that’s just it—it’s hard to imagine such a staggering number! The 46 Million Turkeys project invites members of the community to help create 46 million mini turkeys portraits as a reminder that every single one of those animals was a unique individual.
EVERYONE IS INVITED to participate in this community art project. We are counting on your fun, creative input of individual turkeys from around the planet (made from recycled materials when possible of course!). You do not have to be an artist to participate.

*46 million was the estimated number of turkeys eaten on Thanksgiving Day in 2013. The number has since dropped to 44 million.
