‘Tis the season of giving! The holidays are all about family, love, and bringing “joy to the world.” Why not spend a little time bringing joy to animals?
Here are eight simple things that YOU can do to help animals during the holidays:
Showing your friends and family how delicious vegan treats taste can do wonders for animals. Who knows—they may even try making some vegan goodies of their own!
I know, we're a bit late to the party but, pumpkin pie is delicious all year round in our eyes! Our version is vegan, gluten free and dairy free. Try it out and let us know what you think, the recipe is in our description ? ? #pumpkinpie #pumpkins #glutenfree #vegan #veganpumpkinpie #healthypumpkinpie #dessert #wholefoods #nourish #dairyfree #nutrients #beetsandgreens
Can you imagine anything better than brightening an animal’s day? Animals in shelters don’t have a home in which to spend the holidays, so donating toys or blankets could give them some much-needed comfort.
Getting rid of your nonvegan clothing is good for everyone! Firstly, you’re helping animals by choosing NOT to wear them. Secondly, you’re helping a person in need stay warm.
4. Give a copy of Blackfish as a gift.
This film has been making international headlines for its gripping investigation of SeaWorld’s systematic abuse of orcas and other marine mammals. Your family and friends will never want to visit SeaWorld again after watching it!
It has tips on talking to family members about animal rights and vegan recipes to help you make your holiday cruelty-free!
6. Stuff stockings with animal rights goodies.
7. Volunteer at your local animal shelter.
Spend some time during your holiday break playing with cats, walking dogs, feeding animals, and helping with anything else the shelter needs.
The holidays are the perfect time to get active in your community! Just make sure that you’re polite, professional, and ready to answer questions.
Slap these babies on all your gifts! Your friends and family will be encouraged to respect animals before they open their presents.
Doesn’t it feel good to do something for others?
