December 2016 - A Well-Fed World
We're donating 10% of our December proceeds to A Well-Fed World, a hunger relief and animal protection organization that, through advocacy and direct action, promotes plant-based eating as a means to address world hunger, environmental health, and animal suffering.
We chose this month for this group for two reasons:
They taught us the flaws of farm animal gifting programs - The first thing we learned from them are the conceptual and practical shortcomings in programs that send live farm animals as "gifts" to help alleviate hunger and poverty in low-income countries, a popular choice for gift donations during holiday season. Learn why animal gifting doesn’t necessarily help, and sometimes harms, the recipients, and how these programs may be misleading to donors: 10 Reasons to Say NO to Farmed Animals as ‘Gifts’
They are supporting the water protectors at Standing Rock - They are hosting a fundraiser matching donations up to $10k to help Food Not Bombs (Global) build and stock a vegan food kitchen at Standing Rock. To contribute and have your donation matched, write "Standing Rock" or "Food Not Bombs" in the comments field with your donation made here: awfw.org/donate
