By Lisa Rimmert, Donor Relations Manager
I’m a vegan in a non-vegan world. I’m an animal advocate in a world of people who turn a blind eye to animal suffering in favor of continuing the habits that cause it.
Sometimes I am angry. Sometimes I’m sad. It’s easy to feel alone, misunderstood, and outraged by the seeming lack of compassion in the world.
But then I decide to take action – to donate, leaflet, write a letter to the editor, or even share an animal rights documentary with a friend. And it makes me feel better. And taking action is not only better for my mood; it also makes the world that much better for the animals I was sad for in the first place.
Opportunities to take action are available all the time, and right now – on December 30th – the best way to take action for animals is to make a tax-deductible contribution to Vegan Outreach. Your donation today will be matched dollar-for-dollar, doubling your impact. And every dollar donated means more booklets handed out, more vegetarians and vegans, and a better world for animals – and fewer sad and angry days for those of us who advocate on their behalf. Now that’s a win-win!
