Are you ready for a bit of good news, yet?
Have you noticed a welcome upswing in the numbers of vegans lately?
This morning I read about the latest A-Lister rocker, Bono, jumping on the vegan train.
This was very welcome news, I was visiting my Irish cousin in Southern Ireland, years ago, in the area where Bono lives and considered tossing a copy of “Animal Hero Kids Voices for the Voiceless” over the massive gate to his estate. Now I wish I could return, as he could be open more to the kind2all, eco-friendly message of the book.
Here’s only a partial list of vegan celebs, in the movie, music, and sports industries.
I had the pleasure of meeting the witty gentleman who is first on the list.
Alan Cuming states, “I just gradually discovered over the years I was happier eating this way. But I am also really conscious of how eating meat is so damaging not just to our own bodies, but the planet in general, and so now, yes, there’s a political element to it. When people say ‘I’m not political’ I just want to shake them. Every time you go to the shops, every TV show you watch, every newspaper you buy is a political act.”
Jessica Chastain was kind enough to contribute a quote for the “Animal Hero Kids Voices for the Voiceless” book, she went vegan because she wishes not to contribute to cruelty in this world and would like everyone she meets to know how grateful she is they are here. How kind, a beautiful, inside and out person.
The coolest music power couple on the planet, Beyonce and Jay Z, encouraged their fans to go vegan in 2019 with a contest where the winner will receive life concert tickets to their shows.
Joaquin and Rooney are serious about helping other animals and put their talent where their heart is by narrating “Dominion” “Earthlings” and attending vigils to give pigs water with LA Animal Save. Joquin recently rescued a mother cow and her baby from the jaws of death!

Are You Ready to Jump Aboard the Vegan Train?
Whether you care about other animals, the planet, your health, climate change, world hunger, or even the spread of super viruses, you will be in good company on the celeb vegan train. When I went vegan in 1986 I did not foresee the wealth of new vegan products we have today. It is so easy when I do AnimalHeroKids.org school presentations to offer scrumptious vegan fare samplings.
