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.

    Congratulations! The only problem is the Purina part. Their Waggin’ Train chicken jerky treats are killing our pets. Go to Facebook.com/waggintrain for more info. Throw out ANY treats made in China!


Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
