South Florida/Global-Florida based Animal Hero Kids Inc., a kindness education charity empowering youth to aid all species of animals is partnering with Sublime Restaurant and Bar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on December 4th at 5:00pm. Animal Hero Kids will celebrate the kind actions of young animal advocates ranging from six to 14-years of age who have exhibited amazing kindness to animals through remarkable and newsworthy stories.
This event is the culmination of November’s World Animal Hero Kids’ Month. The young advocates runs the gamut from a 6-year old vegan freestyle rapper for animal justice, two boys who have been speaking up against the Yulin dog eating festival and the Hendry County primate breeding facility, and an elephant advocate blogger intent on releasing a chained elephant in India to a sanctuary. Advocates responsible for the Animal rescue stories highlighted in the “Animal Hero Kids Voices for the Voiceless” book will be celebrated as part of the UK, Ireland, Canada and US Global Book Tour. https://animalherokids.org/global-book-tour.
