This weekend I participated in the Farm Sanctuary Walk for Farm Animals, and I want to send a big thank you out to everyone who supported me! I raised $695 and my team Montclair Vegans came in second in fund raising with a total of $2,351. Farm Sanctuary uses the money raised at the Walks to protect farm animals from cruelty, inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and promote compassion.
