Who’s excited about Passover? I know I am!
Passover is a Jewish holiday about the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. It is a celebration of dignity, hope, and freedom. Prayers said on Passover call on us to be kind to those who are now oppressed and to deepen our commitment to liberty today. Animals on factory farms are oppressed and denied their freedom, so this is a good time to make a commitment to helping them win it by going vegan. My favorite vegan Passover recipe—Sweet Potato Kugel—is a delicious way to get started!

Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
