I Was Never a Protester Until…

Posted by at 3:37 PM | Permalink | No Comments


Among the ways I help animals by writing letters —lots of them. My letters are directed to the editors of newspapers and magazines, and they voice my opinion about articles regarding animal rights issues. I write letters for many reasons.

Conquering Difficulties When Going Vegan

Posted by at 5:42 AM | Permalink | Comments (2)

Posted by at 5:44 AM | Permalink | Comments (4)


I was shopping the other day when someone came up and asked me if I was vegetarian. How did they know to ask? I was wearing my “Powered by Tofu” T-shirt.
