World Vegan Day ~ Melbourne 2017

So here comes one of my favourite events of the year, where two of my passions roll into one. I’m beyond grateful to be asked to curate this years ‘Art’ section for Melbourne’s World Vegan Day 2017 – so l guess l won’t be able to rave too much about being accepted this time, as l will definitely say yes to myself, hahah, one of the perks right… This will be the third year taking part in this wonderful day for all…

A portion of any sales made by Soul Stories on this day wil be donated to one of my special animal organisations S.A.C – Australia (Save a Cow). S.A.C is Australia’s biggest cow sanctuary & biggest ‘large farm animal’ sanctuary ~ to find out more, please click HERE.

Back to World Vegan Day!
Seriously this is a wonderful day out for all NOT to be missed.
We are still waiting for the Arts proposal to be given the YES, so hold tight ans will let you all know what we have tucked up our sleeve for you! The quality and quantity of Artist’s this year is high, which is absolutely inspiring!

World Vegan Days goal is to promote and expand awareness of the ethical, compassionate, health and environmental benefits of a vegan diet and lifestyle to the general public.

They are an all-inclusive, non-judgemental family event that encourages all people of every age group, gender, race and religion to celebrate World Vegan Day. While it is a great day for all Vegans to celebrate the vegan lifestyle it is also a great opportunity to outreach to the wider non-vegan community and immerse them for a few hours in the vegan lifestyle. Many people over the years after attending the event have become Vegan on that day.

Keep on reading below to see all of the attractions WVD have to offer on this fun, friendly and incredibly YUMO day! xt

They will be flying across with OrphFund a well run, ethical, Melbourne based charity that have been managing such projects since 2006.

They have helped fund school, homes, water wells and so may more good deeds listed on their website.  www.orphfund.org

in these remote communities. https://www.facebook.com/events/1649204105381716/
