Animal Hero Kids’ founder Susan Hargreaves opens the show, followed by Holly Roberts, MD, author of Your Vegetarian Pregnancy and Vegetarian Christian Saints.
Animal Hero Kids is an all-volunteer kindness education charity empowering youth to compassionate action via free school presentations highlighting stories of animal rescue and advocacy and action for other animals.
Susan Hargreaves travels the world celebrating, courageous and compassionate action by kids and teens. She infuses Animal Hero Kids with the passion, wisdom and determination acquired during a lifetime devoted to animal activism. By zeroing in on kindness education, Susan plays an essential role supporting, encouraging and empowering youth to build a more compassionate world for all animals.
Holly Roberts is a retired Obstetrician-Gynecologist, as well as a lover of knowledge, with a PhD in Eastern Religion & Philosophy. She has been a compassionate vegetarian my entire adult life, since age 13. Although she is well-informed about the numerous health benefits of being vegetarian, her personal calling to live as one has nothing to do with health. Holly simply could not live inflicting harm and death upon any innocent beings.
Blast from the past! ~ Kids are the future of veganism — and pretty much everything else. We talk about their wellbeing fairly often on the show, including this back-to-school episode in 2017 which we devoted to vegan ballet shoes and a cool parenting site.
