Philip Wollen is a former Vice-President of Citibank and was also General Manager at Citicorp. Wollen became a vegan following his departure from Citibank and is a prominent member of the animal rights movement. He conducts intervention programs to rescue abused animals and funds outreach programs that promote animal welfare and abstinence. He supports 500 charities including Sea Shepherd! His debate about why animals should be off the menu has been seen by millions of people and has been translated in to 18 languages. He is a HERO and I am so lucky to know him. So is his wife Trix, who is an incredibly kind soul.
Chris DeRose is another hero in the Animal Rights movement. His brave efforts earned him the prestigious Courage of Conscience International Peace Award – an honor he shares with previous award winners Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. The cool thing about Chris is that he is not driven by ego or recognition though. All he cares about is protecting animals. For the past 40 years, nobody has accomplished what he has when it comes to shedding light on the horrors of vivisection (animal testing). He is truly one of a kind.
All I kept thinking last night is that I am not doing enough. Being in their presence was so inspiring!! @lc4a #lastchanceforanimals #chrisderose #philipwollen #lastchanceforanimalsgala2017 #animaltesting #vivisection #crueltyfree #vegan #animalrights
