I am an atheist who believes helping our fellow humans is part of humanity. I used to rescue dogs and cats until my health no longer allowed me to. I help homeless people in my own community and try to help people elsewhere. I have been poor and know how difficult it is to start a business or do things without the capital to get started.
I am a firm believer in animal welfare---that even when we raise animals to eat, we should treat them as good as possible and inflict as little pain and suffering as possible. An animal is giving its life for us to eat---the least we can do is be kind to it and respect the sacrifice it has unwillingly made.
