Vegas VegFest Bigger Than Ever!

Yesterday, CWI hosted the third annual Vegas VegFest and it was an outstanding success! With more than 90 vendors, our guests were able to sample a wide variety of foods, learn from local nonprofits, and find an array of vegan products and services. When they weren't busy shopping or eating (or even while they were), VegFest visitors were able to hear inspiring talks from wrestling superstar Austin Aries, professional mixed martial artist Heather Jo Clark, bodybuilder Robert Cheeke, and CWI Executive Director Carrie LeBlanc. We also had food demos, a kids area complete with bounce houses, and more! We are grateful to the 6,000 folks who spent the day with us, and to our vendors, volunteers,

CWI's Big E Campaign Goes Viral

Four years ago, CWI became involved in efforts organized by Western Mass Animal Rights Advocates (WMARA) to put an end to the use of exotic animals at the Big E, which is the largest fair in the northeast and the 6th largest in the nation. We have provided WMARA with posters and leaflets (including a new leaflet design this year--see the bottom of this post for images) and have supported their protesting efforts. We also launched a petition called End the Use of Wild Animal Acts at The Big E.

A Kind World hits the road again

The Las Vegas Strip is one of the world's best known tourist attractions. Welcoming an average of 40 million visitors per year, Vegas is ripe for providing educational opportunities, and, headquartered in Vegas, CWI is in the unique position of being able to reach large numbers of individuals with messages advocating for kindness for all. With that in mind, we've brought back our A Kind World mobile billboard for its second run! With funding graciously provided by the Pollination Project and individual donors, our billboard will run for 32 hours the week of September 24th. Check out some pics of our billboard "in action"!

Save the Koalas!

CWI proudly supports Save the Koala month! Koala facts: The koala is native to Australia and is a marsupial related to the kangaroo and the wombat. They are not bears! They get their name from an Aboriginal word meaning "no drink", as koalas receive the majority of their moisture from ingesting leaves. Koalas live in eucalyptus trees and eat up to 2.2 pounds of eucalyptus leaves per day. Presently, there are only 2,000 to 8,000 koalas in the wild! Although not officially classified as endangered, the population of Australian koalas has dropped by 90% in less than a decade. This is due to the destruction of the koala's natural habitat, a narrow crescent on the eastern coast of Austra
