The Impossible Burger debate was a test for vegans, and we failed.

Vegans, we have a problem. We’re insulting each other, we’re alienating each other, we’re destroying each other’s businesses and reputations, and we’re playing right into the hands of the animal exploitation industry.

Simple Ways To Help Animals This Season

Let’s face it- the holiday season is BUSY. We’re traveling, we’re frantically searching for perfect casserole recipes to bring to family dinners, we’re standing in lines to snag the best deals, we’re tearing through our closets because we just know we have snow pants in there somewhere, we’re trying to figure out how our parentsContinue reading “Simple Ways To Help Animals This Season”

Why I Donate To Your Competition

Because I spend a lot of time on social media and am also connected with quite a few non-profits, I frequently see posts from non-profit founders/volunteers who seem baffled by (or angry about) not receiving the size/quantity of donations they hope for.  Typically, these posts come from newer or smaller organizations that just need some guidance orContinue reading “Why I Donate To Your Competition”

Summer Rescue Rush!

The weeks leading up to and immediately following the 4th of July represent the deadliest time of the year for animals in shelters.

As many of you know, I donate 10% of sales from The Tree Kisser shop to the Love Infinitely Project Animal Fund, which then allocates money and resources to deserving non-profits. Between Feb 15 – Mar 15, the designated recipient of our help was Pets of the Homeless, a national organization focused on providing food,Continue reading ““Pets of the Homeless” Fundraiser”

My Week with Scotlund: Acrylics & Advocacy

Last week, we had the absolute privilege of hosting our friend Scotlund Haisley, president & founder of Animal Rescue Corps, in our home. In addition to rescuing animals (ARC specializes in busting puppy mills, dog fighting rings, and hoarding situations), Scotlund is also an incredibly talented artist. The subjects of his paintings are primarily animalsContinue reading “My Week with Scotlund: Acrylics & Advocacy”

Saving Nero

Hendrick Boards is among my favorite companies in existence. Run by two brothers, this skateboard & apparel company donates a massive amount of their profits (typically around 40%, depending on the item) to independent, deserving animal rescue organizations (they have more than 300 rescue partners!). When you shop with them, the donation sparked by yourContinue reading “Saving Nero”
