There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

An Award for Inspiring!


I have been nominated for the Sunshine Award. I must admit, I had never heard of the award before, but then again, I don't keep up with knowledge of awards online or offline (unless if it's the Academy Awards). Nevertheless, I appreciate the nom. Thank you, Noelle MacLeod. =)

From what I've read, the Sunshine Award is a blogger-to-blogger award for blogs that inspire and bring sunshine into people’s lives. Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere. (Loves it!)

  Rules for the Sunshine Award:
-Post the logo, thank the giver and link to their post.
-Answer the 10 questions below
-Nominate up to 10 other bloggers for the Sunshine award, letting them know in the comments section of their blog, & linking to their blogs.

1. Favorite color?
Burnt orange (all autumn colors)

2. Favorite animal?  
I love them all, but I am currently most closest to my female companion animal chihuahua, Paquita.

3. Favorite number? 

4. Non-alcoholic drink?
Soy Nog

5. Alcoholic drink?
Riesling white wine

6. Facebook or Twitter?

7. Passions?
God & Goddess. Animals. My family. Wicca. Writing.

8. Giving or receiving?
Must be both because I want to receive more so I can give more.

9. Favorite city?
The City of Roses: Portland (Oregon)

10. Favorite TV show?
Coronation Street (a British soap that's been on TV since 1961 and will surely outlive me--it's fabulous)

I guess I can't nominate someone who has nominated me(?)

I nominate The Crystal Chick. She (Samantha Fey) is truly an inspiration to the universe of majick and all spirituality. The items she sell are awesome and they work!--as long as you have genuine faith and good intentions...She is truly a blessing and a phenomenal spiritual teacher!  I learn a lot from Samantha and have grown a lot spiritually because of her.

I could nominate others that are inspirational to me but they are animal rights blogs that probably wouldn't appreciate the nom--and might even delete my nom comment!
