An old saying once went: "Young people should be neither seen nor heard". As you can imagine, that saying doesn't get much play around Unleashed. Every day young Aussies are making a massive effort to be seen and to have their voices heard as they speak up for animals. And that's exactly the way it should be!
Unleashed's Activist Challenge competition is designed to recognise and encourage young people who are making a difference for animals. Last month's winner was Shanii (read her story here), who was chosen from heaps of nominees who are out there making the world a kinder place for animals.
Our newest Activist Challenge winner is ... AllyCat! Ally has been getting active for the animals in more ways than I can possibly count on my fingers (and without them I'm lost). Her story shows how easy it is for anyone to get themselves into gear and start making the world around them safer for countless animals. Leafleting, email campaigning, tweeting for the cause, raising awareness with a powerpoint presentation - even just helping friends make compassionate decisions - every bit helps.
For being a bundle of energy and empathy - Ally is our latest and very deserving Activist Challenge winner! *whistles* *claps until hands are sore* Ally scores an Unleashed prize pack to celebrate the good news.
If you've been out there changing the world for the animals, then we want to hear about it! Tell us what you've been up to, and you could be the next Unleashed activist snagging the prize and the applause!
And remember, young people most definitely SHOULD be seen and DESERVE to be heard!
