Eleven-year-old Thomas Ponce is no stranger to helping animals—that’s for dang sure!
In his spare time, Thomas raises money for PETA by organizing dog washes and attends protests against the circus and SeaWorld, and he’s even working on starting a second animal rights group at his school! Impressive much?!
Also, in 2011, Thomas raised more than $1,000 for the PETA Pack, PETA’s nationwide running team, and he even won the PETA Pack Young Achiever Award! These are just a few of the many reasons that Thomas has just received a Compassionate Kid Award from PETA Kids.
But wait! Want to know what else Thomas did to help animals? He saved a shark’s life! When Thomas recently encountered a person fishing who had just caught a shark and planned to eat the animal, he began to plead for the shark’s life. Thomas explained that sharks, like humans, are living, feeling beings and have every right to live. Moved by Thomas’ sincerity and conviction, the man released the shark back into the ocean.
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
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.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
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 :)
