Thanks to sales from The Tree Kisser shop plus an extra donation from an anonymous supporter, we were able to donate $828.65 to Toronto Pig Save, an extraordinary group of brave volunteers who hold educational vigils outside Toronto slaughterhouses. While their primary activity when stationed at the stoplight right outside the slaughterhouse is to console and provide love to the pigs being transported to their deaths, volunteers also distribute literature and sometimes plant-based food samples to pedestrians and drivers of cars passing by. The courage and compassion possessed by TPS’ founders and volunteers are unwavering. This year, they plan to launch an advertising campaign across public transit and billboards that will encourage viewers to stop eating animals. I’m thrilled that our donations will be able to support this creative new venture. Below are some images from their vigils; to see more, please visit the Toronto Pig Save Facebook page.
