I've always been very fond of animals, but it wasn't until my twenties that I learned more about animal agriculture and started considering the plight of pigs, cows, and chickens. I decided to stop supporting violence towards animals, and I became vegetarian, then vegan. What got me there—and kept me going—was the education and encouragement made available to me by animal advocates.

Now, as VP of Strategic Communications for Vegan Outreach, I get to be on the other side of things. And I get to see the impact our work makes in people's lives on a daily basis. Some people email to thank us for spreading the message at their college that day. A lot of people sign up for our 10 Weeks to Vegan program because they received a leaflet or food sample and were motivated to make a change.

Our work wouldn't happen without the generosity of donors—people just like you, who want to see a vegan world and who know that grassroots outreach and education are they key to culture change. Thank you for that!

For every $250 donated to my page, I'll volunteer for one hour at my local farm sanctuary. That means if I meet my goal, I'll put in 20 volunteer hours!

Will you donate now to have it matched dollar-for-dollar, making twice the impact for animals?
