Summary:

My supporter community has allowed my activism to expand from street interview uploads on YouTube into everything above. To be able to broaden my work and reach so much has been incredibly rewarding and I cannot express my gratitude enough to everyone who has made this on-going progression possible. Due to the support I receive 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 investing my support into 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’m incredibly honoured to have a community of people who value what I do, thank you so much for considering becoming a supporter of my work.

With gratitude - Ed”
