Raising Our Gifted Children with Sara Troy and her guests Kid Zoom THE Vegan Kid and Mum Gillian Walters.
Most children are taught to take the best care of their companion animals. They love them and feed them, pamper them and make sure they are not harmed, but at the same time, we live in a society that teaches us that it is okay to eat pigs for breakfast, chickens for lunch, and cows for dinner. It is estimated that 60 billion land animals and 90 billion marine animals are killed for food each year. These numbers do not include the millions of animals killed in other areas of exploitation. Find out how King Zoom makes sense of this and what you can do to help save animals.
JOIN SARA AND KID ZOOM WITH MUM GILLIAN ON WHY BEING VEGAN
Saving the Planet with Compassion
I was born Vegan.
I learned that we drank almond milk because cow’s milk was for baby cows. Eating plant-based foods was just normal for me (and delicious!).
Growing up I learned that we didn’t visit zoos and marine parks because the animals inside these places were not happy.
As I got older I learned more about animals used for food, entertainment, clothing and in laboratories. I felt confused as to why this was happening to animals. I just knew that I had to do something to make a change, so I got active!
My activism started when I was about 7 years old. I felt so sad about the earthquake in Haiti that I wanted to do something. So I asked friends to donate money to Doctors without Borders instead of birthday gifts for me.
For several years I made freshly squeezed lemonade and sold it to raise money for local animal rescue groups.
Since then I have attended marches, peaceful protests, gathered signatures for
Bill S-203, spoken with local government, leafleted, created posters and chalked!
I have had an active part in making history; including the Ban on Cetaceans in Captivity at the Vancouver Aquarium and the biggest Animal Rights March in San Fransisco!
But my favourite activism is speaking about Veganism and visiting sanctuaries.
