For many, taking the step towards a kinder life can feel isolating, especially if they are the only one in their family or community looking to make the change. We are all more alike than we are different, and on this page you will find some special people who have chosen to make the world a better place and the vegan community a bit brighter. Enjoy events, join meetups and visit some of the sanctuaries listed here, or just read through the stories and reach out to someone you resonate with.
Sanctuaries & Non-profits
There are a lot of truly special people in this world, people who dedicate themselves day after day to the love, care and rehabilitation of neglected, discarded and abused animals. These wonderful men and women stand on the frontline of the fight for compassion and witness first-hand the devastation that our current agriculture system wreaks on the most vulnerable of our world.
These sanctuaries are safe havens and dreams come true for so many animals that have had the worst start in life. Visiting them and hearing their stories can be difficult and yet so rewarding. Whenever you get a chance to, please visit them for some unconditional furry love and find out how you can help out in any small way.
Most of us were not vegan from birth. We all start our journey somewhere. Some of us experience a lightbulb moment and make the change instantly while others transition slowly. Whether driven by ethical reasons, fears for the environment or health, there is no right or wrong way, no definite path or "perfect" vegan. We are all doing our best to live happy and healthy lives without harming others and causing the least amount of harm.
These stories from "everyday" vegans show that we are all different, from diverse backgrounds and each of us has our own reason for choosing this way of life.
