Figures do not account for those who have gone vegan from events, investigations, filmmaking projects, offline speeches and lectures, or those who have gone vegan from the variety of online content without using either of the mentoring websites.
My Patreon support has allowed my activism to expand from street interview uploads on YouTube into everything above. To be able to broaden my work so much has been incredible and I cannot express my gratitude enough to everyone who has made this on-going progression possible. Due to the support I receive on Patreon, I am able to pay a full-time salaried staff member in order to keep my workload sustainable and new goals achievable.
I am constantly working on the development of new projects and ideas, with the aim of devoting my Patreon support to ensuring as many people as possible are reached with the vegan message and that my work is always evolving and reaching more people.
I will remain forever grateful to the activists whose incredible work had such a life-changing impact on me, if it was not for them it's most likely I would still be culturally-indoctrinated myself, and therefore it feels only right that I give back to the world what I have received.
I hope you can join me in fighting for a vegan world.
