It's all happening next week! Not only is it World Veg Week, but the wonderful people from Edgar's Mission animal sanctuary have launched Be Kind To Animals Week -- a week for everyone to take simple steps to improve the lives of our furry (finned, feathered and scaley) friends!
There are plenty of great things you can do to get involved:
You can act at home, by taking your best friend for a stroll (more than once I hope!); or putting a nesting box for birds in a tree in your backyard.
You could act local, by volunteering at an animal shelter; picking up rubbish on the beach; or writing a letter to the editor of your local paper about an animal issue you are passionate about (live export maybe? Or jumps racing? Puppy farms?).
Or you can make a change in your own life (to have a big impact!), such as taking the Veg Week Challenge and saving two animals' lives by taking animals off your plate for the week (or longer!); or committing to buy products that aren't tested on animals.
Remember, even if you're already rockin the cruelty-free lifestyle, you can extend the Veg Challenge (or any other Be Kind to Animals Week initiatives) to your friends and family, neighbours, workmates, teachers, etc. The more the merrier (and the better off animals will be for it)!
To get you in the mood for Be Kind to Animals Week, here's a gorgeous video of two amazing inhabitants from Edgar's Mission:
