‘Got Drought?’ is a billboard and social media campaign that raises awareness about how animal agriculture wastes water, pollutes the environment and contributes to climate change.

Training the Chefs is a project of the Vegetarian Society of El Paso to veganize El Paso. This project will host an educational workshop for local chefs (from restaurants, school lunch programs, a culinary program at the community college, hospitals, and assisted living facilities) on the benefits of a vegan diet so that they can add tasty, hearty, and healthy vegan options to their menus.

2018-04-02T08:35:17+00:00

CompassionWorks International's Go Vegan initiative will focus vegan messaging on our local area of Las Vegas. We will use vegan messaging that is direct, but friendly, to focus on the many benefits that going vegan offers and will couple that with strong, effective, eye-catching design in an effort to save more farmed animals from unnecessary suffering.

Kindred Spirits Care Farm – From killing to caring – butchery room becomes animal clinic

2018-03-29T16:38:25+00:00

Kindred Spirits Care Farm is an organization that aims to share the understanding that every sentient being is entitled to respect and empathy, and that violence against one is violence against all. This project connects abused, neglected and abandoned people with rescued farm animals in a sanctuary setting to let them heal each other.

Little Oak Sanctuary – Planting Seeds of Compassion

2018-03-31T09:02:59+00:00

Our project, Planting Seeds of Compassion, aims to produce an education program that taps into children's natural sense of compassion for animals. Framed around empathy, and informed by our experience creating the Be-The-Change booklets, our project will tie in with the Australian school curriculum making it a valuable tool for schools.

Kindred Spirits Care Farm, the Teaching Circle, Impact Grant 2016

2016-12-26T19:27:10+00:00

We are going to build a Teaching Circle at the center of our organic garden mandala. This Teaching Circle will be a ring-shaped wooden planter with benches and overhead shade to make learners comfortable while they learn about plant based diets, the joys of growing food and how farm animals are friends, therapists, and individuals, not food. This grant will buy the materials to create this Teaching Circle, and with it we will be able to help people see, smell, taste and fully experience the truth we teach. This Teaching Circle will help change lives and we are very grateful.

Kate Luke, Be The Change Booklets, Impact Grant 2016

2016-12-23T10:28:33+00:00

We are creating a series of booklets. The booklets tell the story of a particular resident of Little Oak Sanctuary, providing an opportunity for the reader to identify with that animal as an individual. Information is then provided about the issues that face those animals and further information on how people can BE THE CHANGE for that animal - ie what changes one can implement in ones life that will help that species. We have produced a booklet on Pigs, Dairy Cows, and Sheep and this impact grant will allow us to produce a booklet on Poultry and Horses.
