Katie Cantrell: Presenting the Realities of Food Sustainability and Animal Welfare

Welcome to our program “Katie Cantrell: Presenting the Realities of Food Sustainability and Animal Welfare,” that introduces an admirable American vegan activist and the non-profit organization she created, the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition (FFAC). The Coalition’s mission is to inform and empower the people to save animals and the environment, as well as highlight the benefits we can gain by changing our everyday food choices. Katie and other FFAC members have made 2,000-plus presentations, which are free of charge and last for about 45 minutes. Over the years, the non-profit has reached over 111,000 people. FFAC wants to help create an informed consumer who will demand plant-based products because they have a basic understanding of where food comes from and highly value a sustainable food system.

RASTA Sanctuary: A Lifelong Safe Haven for Animals, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

In January 2001, this amazing charity was founded by a benevolent, vegan woman named Lucie Cerny. Team RASTA finds that the most important aspect of rescue work is information-sharing and advocacy. On the RASTA website, you can find a blog that covers topics ranging from how to start an animal sanctuary to veganism. “I would love to see a day when animals are not used for their body parts and that we could just live in harmony with other species on this planet, and stop destroying our planet and the animals, and human health also. Be Vegan, Make Peace.”

RASTA Sanctuary: A Lifelong Safe Haven for Animals, Part 1 of 2 (INT)

RASTA stands for “Rescue And Sanctuary for Threatened Animals” and focuses on aiding abandoned and abused farm animals as well as inspiring compassion for all our animal friends through advocacy and public outreach. For almost 20 years, RASTA has taken beings of all shapes and sizes who need a home. If you ever visit this place of love, you get more than just a chance to meet the cute denizens. The kind volunteers also provide all visitors with a 30-minute presentation on the sanctuary and veganism. “Because in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter how much land or how much money you have, you can’t rescue them all but you can make a much larger impact by educating people about veganism and about, just making kinder choices in life and things like that.”

The Humble Company: Dr. Noel Abdayem's Compassionate Heart

Dr. Noel Abdayem is a dentist in Sweden. When he was still a dental student, he went to Jamaica to work as a volunteer to treat cavities in children. He found that many kids did not have toothbrushes. Accordingly, Dr. Abdayem founded The Humble Company, initiating the production of bamboo toothbrushes that were designed and developed by professional dentists. The Toothbrush handles are made from 100% biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo. In addition to toothbrushes, the Humble Company also produces an all-vegan lineup of products. Touched by his volunteer experience in Jamaica, Dr. Abdayem longed to further help the disadvantaged children of the world, particularly in realm of improving their oral health. Initially, he donated toothbrushes to various charity organizations working with kids. Subsequently, he met Dr. Darren Weiss. Out of a common vision, they established the Humble Smile Foundation.

Hillside Animal Sanctuary: A Countryside Paradise

Hillside Animal Sanctuary: A Countryside Paradise

In 1995, Wendy Valentine established the Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Frettenham, Norwich, UK, after seeing the enormous suffering of egg-laying hens in the poultry industry. From the beginning, Ms. Valentine has campaigned against factory farms and done her utmost to help the victims of their heartless operations. In addition to rescuing animals, she works to raise awareness of the constant agony of the animals on the farms. Her selfless love and concern for animals was already well known. Hillside’s growth over the years was made possible by the generosity of a sympathetic public. We have good hearts and instinctively know how to treat animals with love and respect. When this translates into adopting a vegan diet, we benefit our animal co-inhabitants, ourselves, and the whole planet.

Planting Benevolent Seeds in Children’s Hearts – Nepal’s Shree Lho Basic School, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue to discover additional attributes of this institution and the great works of the teachers who look after youngsters. The Reverend Sonam Chhiling Lama shared with us the importance of daily prayers in student life. “We always do our morning prayers and worship. The main purpose of morning prayers and rites is to make our students wiser and to pay attention to the righteous teachings that guide us.” One joyful result of the school’s establishment is that it has brought local villages closer together. “We sometimes organize community service events. During these events, some people come from the upper hills, while some from the lower villages and they gather together and peacefully socialize during these programs, and cooperate with each other. This is how this school has contributed to our community.” Currently, the Shree Lho Basic School teaches through the 7th grade. However, it will soon expand and eventually serve students through the 10th grade.
