rainboww69 Growing up, I loved going to the zoo. I didn't think much when I ate meat and I didn't care for others the way I do now. My life has completely changed and I have a whole new point of view on life. I don't see animals as entertainment. I am not okay with humans being mistreated and it really made me think about why I should be okay with animals or other living beings getting mistreated as well. When I see them behind glass or somewhere trapped, I become very upset and emotional. When I see or smell meat, I become nauseous and depressed. Do you know that every time you consume dairy, it is because you are taking away milk from a baby cow? What if that were to happen to human mothers and their children? I value life in every way, shape or form. I see those who need help and I come running, full speed. People try to break me down. They throw rocks and darts at my soul and it just passes through, because I don't exist for them. I am blessed with the knowledge that I have. I am thankful for the compassion I have stored within me that people lack. I see other living things and view them equal to me. If you are against animal testing or if you are one of those people who are against Sea World, because whales are taken from their homes, think about all the other animals who are struggling to survive as well. Part of you knows compassion. I have lost people I once thought were friends, because I am vegan. I get bullied for being vegan. People try to shame me, because I actually give a damn about the world. Be brave. Dare to care about others. I can't stop fighting for what is right, because I was not made to quit. I was born to change the world. I see the animals, I love the universe and I won't stop trying to show others what compassion is. #gilcreasenaturesanctuary #animalsanctuary #animalrights #rescuedanimals #animals #rescued #freedommatters #slaverystillexists #vegansunite #veganlifestyle #vegan #whatvegansdo #animalrightsactivist #animalrightsmovement #animalrightadvocate #beautifulanimals #protectyourplanet #gogreen #nodairy #nomeat #standupfortheirrights #betheirvoice #veganstrong #spreadawareness #spreadpeace #compassionovercruelty #veganism 5h

rainboww69 I stopped by after work to check on the animals, because I am very concerned for them. Specially now, since the weather is crazy. It wasn't a surprise to see them still outside in this cold weather. It has been raining for hours. One of the employees spotted me and I think they know why I come around now. All of a sudden, they decide to put the animals inside somewhere. I am not here to ruin people's lives. I am here, because my heart takes me here to the animals who are being mistreated. The ones who are forced to be in the cold and in the heat for hours, just so people can pay to look at them and eventually touch them. I don't care about how you were raised, that's not right. They are ALIVE. They get cold and sick just like we do. They cry and get scared, just like us. We are not superior. Use your heart and your brain. Find compassion and please help those who need it. #spreadawareness #betheirvoice #speakup #fucksociety #truth #vegan #veganlifestyle #veganism #untileverycageisempty #disruptsociety #animalabuse #whatvegansdo #slaverystillexists #protectyourplanet #boycottthecircus #vegansunite #freedommatters #animalrightsactivist #animalliberation 7h

hedyblondin Day 30 of #onedressonemonth for A21! Hard to believe I've worn the same dress for 30 straight days! My goal was to raise money for & awareness of human trafficking & the 27 million victims ensnared in the system. Sadly, only 1-2% of victims are ever rescued! Donate using link in bio... #donate Had an incredibly entertaining wknd with #wearelive youth at #ncfaf16 had a great turn out & merited in many categories 🏼🏼🏼 #mychurchalive students & parents should be very proud! Love this kid (who is a foot taller than me...) @e.t.johnson, and so proud of his accomplishments & all our students this year! #welldone #ilovefaf #finearts2016 #louisville2016 #endit #freedomaliveca #slaverystillexists #bodiesarenotcommodities #moderndayslavery #a21 #endsextrafficking #endhumanslavery #endlabortrafficking #longwinded #shortbutmighty 8h

glkitt Had a great time at #repsforrescue today supporting @ijm and their fight to put an end to modern day human slavery. It was fun to workout with a fantastic group of athletes and friends for a worthy cause! And I even got to partner up with @magstincher for the workout, even though she made me run far too fast on the run! (But I made her do more wallballs than she wanted to so I guess we're even). Thanks @lindybarber @atunnicliffe @grahamholmberg @thesavymama @bsmit13 @alecsmith8 @helmickcf @aleahelmick for coming out, and @magstincher @jeff.tincher @christycrossfit and Gary Haugen and the whole IJM team for putting on such a great event! #slaverystillexists #ijm 12h

kevinrig18 What a great event today at @Crossfitreston! Reps for Rescue was put together by @magstincher Jeff Tincher @christycrossfit and the Founder/CEO of the International Justice Mission Gary Haugen to raise money to help end slavery in our world.
The amount of support that was shown today was unreal. Especially having the support of the reigning CrossFit Games champion @bsmit13 2010 games champ @grahamholmberg, @gridleague athlete @alecsmith8 and several more games and regional athletes was surreal. It's because of your support the @IJM now has an additional 4 missions it can execute on to help fight the war on slavery. Thank you all who donated, participated, and supported this cause! #repsforrescue #crossfit #fighttoendslavery #thisisjustthebeginning #fuelfam #findyourfuel #changetheworld #family #slaverystillexists #stronger

xfittbn It's not every day that you get to beat the #crossfitgames champ Ben Smith in a workout ;) Alea Helmick set a blazing pace and I was holding on by my fingernails to try to keep up. It was a blast to get to workout with so many Games athletes while raising awareness for such a worthy cause. Thanks again to all of the athletes for helping raise awareness of modern day slavery. #slaverystillexists #crossfit 16h

xfittbn Thank you @aleahelmick for being my partner for #repsforrescue, trying to keep up with you was humbling, it's been a couple of hours and I'm still not feeling normal! This was a great event for a very important cause and over $20,000 was raised, which will make 4 rescue missions possible. Thanks to all of the athletes who donated their time and all of the people who donated to the cause. #slaverystillexists #crossfit 17h
