215: Million Dollar Vegan & Veganuary
with Vegan Evan
9 year old Vegan Evan has been making waves in the community for a few years now, but most recently his publicity has come from a collaboration with Million Dollar Vegan, where he asked President Trump to go vegan for the month of January in exchange for One Million Dollars to be donated to US Veterans. The campaign now offers $1 to charity for every person who pledges to go vegan for the month of January.
In addition to Evan's campaign with MDV, Evan is the president of Animal Hero Kids, and has participated in multiple animal rescues with DxE, and has spoken in front of thousands of people.
In this podcast, Evan and his mom Shannon tell their story on how they went from just hearing about veganism, to what they've accomplished today.
More about Vegan Evan:
Evan is an activist on a mission! He is focused on helping make the world around us a better, happier place for all animals— both human and non-human. With the help of his mom, grandma, and friends, he gets quite a bit of outreach and activism done. They also do leafleting, marches, protests, disruptions, vigils, Cubes of Truth and many other forms of activism. They also visit sanctuaries and make videos & livestream so that people can meet the individuals, this way they can see them for WHO they really are.
They do this so everyone can see that these animals they call "food," are the same as our cats & dogs at home. They try to do as many different types of activism as they can, because they know that people are reached in different ways. Evan also makes videos, raps, and speak all over the United States about animal rights and living a vegan lifestyle. He is President of Animal Hero Kids, an all-volunteer, non-profit that reaches millions each year with a message of being kind to all. He is also a Spokesperson for the Solutionary Species Movement and for Waking Justice as well.
