We are working towards ending the animal agriculture in order to save tens of billions of animals every year and in order to stop catastrophic climate change.

The Community Impact Program works with children that, due to unfortunate circumstances, are not afforded the same opportunities as some of their more privileged peers. Our Community Impact Program presents the only opportunity for many impoverished children to participate in organized sport.
In response to the fact that 70% of children’s biographies are written about men, we developed the Amazing Women’s Edition program (AWE), the first national student book competition on local heroines.

My purpose is to teach, encourage, and help people make choices in their lives that will impact the future of our children and therefore, the future of our planet. To best meet these goals, I facilitate education stations and workshops at fairs with the local youth of 4-H and FFA groups.
