Best way to make a difference for animals + vegan entrepreneurship

Hey Guys,

I hope you're all doing well. I wanted to know what do you guys think is the best way to make a difference as a vegan? I've pondered this question for a long time and always am because it's the most important thing for me, to make a difference. I've asked couple of President of non-profits like MFA, Farm Sanctuary, Vegan Outreach, etc and I read a book called "Being Great At Doing Good" by Nick Cooney, a guy from MFA that talks about the subject and from what I've taken from these conversations was that starting a business and giving my money to non-profits, could make a really big impact, a bigger one than possibly going to be a speaker and talk about animal rights. I've always been interested in starting a business, but this made me realize that I could serve the animals while doing it. The speaker routes seem interesting as well and the great Gary Yourofsky in a total inspiration because he made more of a difference than a lot of organizations in my opinion, but I don't know anyone else that has had as close to as much success him, so that's why I think that going and starting a business might be a better way. Besides that, there's nothing that prevents you from speaking animal rights even though you're starting a business. I just want to serve the animals as best as I can because the truth of the matter is that when I die, I want to be remembered as someone who cared for animals and that did his best to save as many of them, that's the most important thing for me. I wanted to get your guys opinion on the subject.

Thanks a lot and have an amazing night,

Claude

It is wonderful that you want to help animals.

Here are some ideas that I like/things I practice:

-taking vegan magazines and books to public book shelves

-donating vegan dog food to animal shelters

-adopt/foster animals in need

-take delicious vegan food to gatherings, meetings, parties

-learn and get educated to be able to debate and argue in defense of animals

Millions of species of animals and plants are being pushed to extinction by the destruction of their habitat.  Saving these animals and plants is a billion billion billion times more important than the poorly thought out causes you mentioned.  Become an environmentalist and work to save entire species off animals.  Future people that love animals will be very sad if you wasted your life on the organizations you mentioned and let  entire ecosystems of animals perish.

So what do you suggest? What organizations do you think are worthy of support?
