If you follow any number of non-profits on social media, these last few weeks your wall or twitter feed would have been dominated by requests from charities to vote for them in the Chase Community Giving competition. The winners have been announced, and Ecorazzi favorite the Ian Somerhalder Foundation is bringing home $100,000 to put to good use for animals, youth, and the environment.

That makes this an excellent fundraising month for the ISF who have also raised over $27,000 in the Strut Your Mutt event put together by Best Friends Animal Society. You can still sign up, and yes, Ian will be there.

The ISF wasn’t the only organization to take home big bucks from Chase Community Giving.  Taking the top prize of $250,000 with over 90,000 votes, was the Egyptian Cancer Hospital. Three animal rescue organizations also received a hundred grand each. Multiple health organizations also nabbed the same prize. It was a good day for children’s health and dogs and cats.

Did your favorite non-profit make the cut? There are so many great organizations out there, it’s hard to choose just a few.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
