Welcome to my Patreon page!
The transformation to veganism is often an incredibly profound, life-changing experience and not long after I became vegan, I realised that I owed it to the animals that had previously been murdered on my behalf to devote my life to animal rights.

My online activism involves creating educational YouTube content including street conversations and interviews, where I focus on talking to the public about the morality of using animals to order to encourage positive discussion and debate. I also produce educational resources in order to help transitioning vegans as well as activists.

From the feedback I have received from both vegans and non-vegans, it seems people really respond to the way I communicate the vegan message. Therefore I feel it is hugely important that I am able to spend as much time as possible creating thought-provoking discussion both online and offline. By becoming part of my Patreon team you give me the time I need to change people's minds about animal commodification - and by changing minds, we save lives. 


BREAKDOWN OF MY ACTIVISM WORKLOAD:

 • Street interviews
• Educational videos 
•  Organising & attending outreach events & vigils
•  Filmmaking (most recent project - Land of Hope and Glory)
•  Screening Land of Hope and Glory to university students
•  Full days of virtual reality outreach at universities
•  Speeches in universities to non-vegans
•  Global free speeches with the aim of inspiring and empowering vegans
•  Creating free resources (122 page e-book '30 Non-Vegan Excuses and How to Respond to Them' - downloaded by over 28,000 vegans & '30 Days, 30 Excuses' series)
• Television and radio appearances
•  Helping new vegans
•  Coaching new activists

SURGE PROJECTS:

•  On-going campaign to bar fur from London Fashion Week
•  Organising The Official Animal Rights March & working to turn it into a global event
•  Travelling the UK in The Big Vegan Activism Van
•  Creating resources and leaflets
• Building a strong core team & working on developing as an organisation


With the help of my Patreon team, I am able to balance my activism and advocacy successfully with the aim of bringing the vegan message to as many people as possible. I am able to run not only my online platform, but also Surge - a creative animal rights organisation that I co-founded in 2016. In 2017 for the second year running through Surge I hosted the UK's largest ever animal rights march and my ideas and dreams for what I want to achieve for the animals through Surge are endless. In late 2017 one of those dreams became a reality with The Big Vegan Activism Van when I embarked on a seven month tour with the Surge team across the UK, bringing vegan education and outreach to students in a total of 1/3 of UK universities. 






Every month, I have a two hour Patreon team live stream where we chat about what activism and advocacy I've been doing over the course of the month as well as the conversations and experiences that I've had and what we can learn from them.


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 hope you can join me in fighting for a vegan world.

Goals
$5,000 – reached! per month
This level of support and above allows me to pay a full-time staff member and also supports the on-going financial costs of touring with my activism and The Big Vegan Activism Van

My staff member assists in content production (filming and editing) and social media and activism scheduling management. The level and quality of content I am aiming to produce throughout 2018 can be made achievable with the help of a full-time team member. 

All of the support I receive enables me to continue working 80 + hours per week on my activism (see 'activism workload' in the about section).

The current pledge amount on the page does not account for tax, conversion rates and it does not accurately reflect declined pledges and fees.
